Is there something else your phone is connected to via Bluetooth? That symbol appears on my phone when its connected to my car but not otherwise.

You can also download the user manual for your phone online & it should show things like these.
I did do this and looked everywhere and didnt see it or any symbols for that matter thanks though someone sent me the info :)

Hi Kim, it looks like 'Bluetooth searching' with the two arced 'radio waves' emanating from the Bluetooth symbol. The small right angle triangle appears to be a signal strength indicator. Which phone do you have, Kim? Are you sharing an internet connection via Bluetooth, or is your phone paired to a specific device or your vehicles' Bluetooth system when you see this? 
i have a symbol on my phone when i put my bluetooth on its the bluetooth symbol but it has an arrow pointing towards the middle on both sides . Anyone know what this means ?

Thank you this is actually what i was looking for i downloaded the whole manual and did not see any symbols with descriptions thanks . I took my phone in to Koodo to have something fixed on my bill and the guy working there put all my contacts on my sim card then i had every name 3 times !!! i really dont think he knew what he was doing then thats when this symbol showed up and my phones not connecting to my car so i guess i have to keep trying thanks again

Do you want to make all other contacts disappear? Or have you managed to solve the problem by yourself?

Btw, glad I helped!

Well done Robert!

Third icon as shown in Robert's picture, is the icon you're referring to Melody. The icon appears whenever a Bluetooth enabled device is connected to your phone. In the Bluetooth settings of your phone, see what devices are paired, make sure your device is set to discoverable mode and then re-scan for your vehicles' Bluetooth feature.

It may take a couple of attempts to get it working. Let us know how it worked and if you require further assistance, please provide information regarding your phone, (i.e.) make and model.
