          Have you tried downloading the manual with a computer?
          This just a guess without knowing what phone you have (I can't see that info in the mobile web page). The blinking triangle might mean you have lost data connection either by being in a dead zone or you're roaming.

            Hi,

            You should try to look up the error code in the manual.   :smileyhappy:  Just a little joke.

             

            you are probably loosing your network connection.  Try downloading it via wifi or on a computer.  also, when the triangle appears you can drag down the notification bar and see what the issue is.

             

            Good luck.

              Sorry Ann...I didnt see your post.  My reply screen was up for a few min before i posted it.  

               

              So....What Ann said is probably right.

                @dj
                That's alright. LOL
                Sometimes it's guess and by golly with the mobile view of the website. All I see is name, rank and post. Part of reason I stuck my phone type in my signature line.

                BTW it was a complete and utterly out of the head guess. So I'm glad I guessed right since you just confirmed it with your post.

                  Too funny!  My answer was also a complete and utterly out of the head guess!   We both can't be wrong, so mathematics would say we are right!

                    My lungs.... can't take any.... more, Captain... laughing too hard!

                    Ok back to the OP. I did find in the Dinc manual a triangle with a exclamation point in it that is a general notification. The Eris has it too, I know have seen it recently. If you pull down the notification bar like DJ said, it will tell what going on. Hopefully some of the phones have something similar.

                      I think it is a roaming signal. The notification triangle has never blinked when I have seen it.

                        Maybe...i turned off my roming notifications.

                         

                        Off topic but, it's a little disheartening to see that I am considered a "bronze contributor 2" with only 250 posts, and you are still a "bronze contributor 2" with 1800 posts.  I think the forum needs to change how they "reward" people with statuses.
