This morning I noticed a blue point and number 1 associated with cellular network indicator on lock-screen. I mean the one close to time display on the left which indicates cellular-network activity. I'm using tethering (wifi mode) and 3G-itinerance apparently.

What does it mean ? (point & number)

I found nothing like that in jolla.com.guide - could you add a screenshot? Or could the tethering app tell about the amount of connections there?

My tests seem to focus on Wifi Tethering usage. It appears when I enable wifi-tethering.

There is no Answer to this question, so the reason to close this can't be right. Please, re-open and close with a correct reason. Thanks.

@jjaone : I know that industrial cleaning is not an easy job. I changed title to make it match to the main idea/question.

@TNZ Sure, your question, just tried to understand what it's all about, also in respect to the answer given (which IMO is correct).

The blue dot and number indicates that tethering is enabled and active.
