Its either mounting sd card or you unmounted sd card.

And if you pull down the notification bar, it should tell you what's going on... sometimes the phone will run a check on the SD card for errors on startup.
But that looks more like a SIM card icon to me...

As Combat Gerbil said the icon looks more like a SIM card than an sdcard. The thread that I posted relates to this icon in the context of Vodafone NZ service users which is precisely the case for luvvt as far as I can tell.

I'm sure I've seen that icon when it detects a new sim and clicking on it in the notification bar normally takes you to APN settings to select your correct network. After that is done it disappears normally.

As far as I can see the icon is stat_notify_sim_toolkit and it looks likely that it has something to do with (Vodafone's) SIM Toolkit:

It does show in the notification bar but does not bring up any thing when i click on it. This shows on my phone daily and only dissapears with a reboot. I cannot find a pattern as to when it loads and from what I can tell does not seem to affect the phone (In saying that i do experience bad reception and frequent gps drop offs or freezes but ive put that down to a mix of a poor reception area and low budget hardware). My APN settings are all correct as per listed on the voda nz community web.

I havent had a chance to view the links yet but will get around to it tonite and I much appreciate responses

Cheers guys ;)

Did those threads help at all? Most or all of them were about Vodafone NZ users having this issue. Not sure if the conclusion was that it had something to do with Vodafone NZ's SIM Toolkit?

Yep the threads were a big help, I will try the freeze it method next time it shows

Just thinking back to when its been showing its either happening when Im in a low signal situation possibly when the phone is switching automatically between 2 and 3g

I will run my phone without the sd card for couple of days to eliminate that theory

The icon is definitely a SIM so I doubt that the sdcard has anything to do with it but no harm in eliminating it as a possibility.

You mean uninstalled the Vodafone SIM Toolkit?
I presume that those threads helped?
Glad you got it sorted. :)
