What does 'phone with a red slash through it' icon mean?

On the top left of my Home screen is an icon of an old telephone handset and a red circle with diagonal slash through it. It appeared after a call was dropped, so I think that's what it signifies. But how do I get rid of it?!!!

It is my Call Blocker app alerting me that a call was BLOCKED. To quote Emily Litella/Gilda Radner: Never mind.

Thank you

Maxx Daddy,  We're here to help with your device questions. The icon is due to signal loss. Which zip code are you in? How often does the icon appear on your screen?

Motorola Droid Maxx. Sorry, no can do screen-shot. But I will try to explain it. It's an image of the OLD (pre-cell phone era) handset of a corded, rotary dial, type phone. A red circle w/slash is positioned between the ear and mouth piece. Hope that helps. Smiley Happy

That phone is certainly capable of creating a screenshot. It isn't that old to not have the feature included in the OS.

Did you check the user manual? http://cache.vzw.com/multimedia/mim/droid-maxx/droid-maxx-manual.pdf

It is not the fault of the phone that 'I' cannot take a screen shot. (ahem) I've never had the need to do so, so I've never learned how. Thank you for the link.

Btw, the icon/symbol has finally disappeared.

Which phone model do you have? Can you post a screenshot of the icon so we can see what you see?
