DROID X - Phone Status & Notifications
What do the icons on my phone mean?
At the top of the screen, icons on the left notify you about new messages or events (flick the bar down for details). Icons on the right tell you about phone status.
Notification icons report the arrival of new messages, calendar events, alarms, as well as ongoing events, such as when call forwarding is on or the current call status. When you receive a notification, its icon and a brief summary appear in the status bar, and then is replaced just by its icon.
You can open the Notifications panel to view a list of all your notifications. Applications whose activities produce notifications, such as Gmail and Google Talk, have their own settings you can use to configure whether and how they send notifications.
Below is a list of notifications and status icons:
Uploading data SD card is full Download complete Voicemail Message Connected to VPN Disconnected from VPN New Email Message
Volume Problem with message delivery
Problem with sign in or sync Upcoming Event
Phone Connected via USB cable Tip: To see today’s date, tap and hold the status indicators.

How to address the icons
I just got a Droid X through work and read the previous post regarding what the icons on the top left mean. Presently I have two triangles with exclamation points in them and an envelope with and "X", as well as a download complete icon. My question is, how do I address the icons? I have no idea what email wasn't sent or from which email address. I assume the triangles were due to pictures I attempted to send to FB. Will they automatically resend or do I need to resend again? Can I make the icons go away or are they forever stuck up there? I tried to click on them but that did nothing.
Appreciate the help.
You should be able to pull down your notification bar (press and drag down) - now you should be able to locate the notification icons (if they are on the left side of the notification they will be towards the bottom of the screen while the right side of the notification bar is in the top of the list)...click on them here and you should be able to resolve the issues. Also, from time to time, you might get notifications that don't need to be addressed - there is a clear button top, right (just below the notification bar) that will clear the notifications at the bottom of the list...

That is indicating that you have "vibrate" turned on for notification sound...
