The triangular sign on iDrive display

Hey Guys,
There is this triangle besides the phone Bluetooth signal strength sign on my iDrive display. Do you have any idea what that sign is?
I tried turning off the 3G to see if that is the reason, but it was not.

My guess would be an indicator for roaming on your cell service provider.

What do you mean by roaming? I am inside the town all the time when it is there.

In the US, most cell phones can "roam" or pick up cell towers from other than your cell service provider's. Based on the terms of your contract, you may be charged at a different rate when you are roaming.

Exclamation The BMW On-line Owner's manual may be useful

No need to "guess" - the information is available in your owner's manual.

Today I figured it out that the owners manual that the dealer gave me is sort of a short version. I found the complete owners manual online and it has it.
Thanks,

Trying to hunt through the paper version ... well, you'll grow old slowly

On-line .. on a smart phone/tablet is the only way to wander through the plethora of information necesary for understanding and operating the F10

I cannot remove it!! No roaming is on on my iPhone. I even turned off the "automatic network search"on my iPhone and selected my provider manually. But still I have this triangle sign. Any idea?
