Definition of All Samsung Reality Phone Icons

I realized recently  that i really did not know what all those text message envelopes on my reality cell phone mean. Actually, I really did not know what any of the icons anywhere on the phone meant.  I went to the manual that came with my Samsung Reality phone. I was hoping there was a page that showed an image of each icon and then defined it.  No such luck!  The Samsung Reality users manual is really just a quick way to get your started and not meant to make you a true cell phone expert.

I went on line to look for some answers as to what these text message envelope icons mean.  I eventually found out that all the answers I need where hidden on my phone.

Your Samsung Reality cell phone has a glossary, sort of anyway, of all those little image icons.  It isn't real easy to find but once you do, you'll be able to tell what icons mean "message pending", what icons mean "message sending" failed, "message sent", received, opened, etc.

Just follow these steps:

Go to the Main Menu

Press "Settings and Tools"

Press " * Phone Info"   (please note: if you can not find this, you may have accidentally hit the "tools" button. For some reason I kept doing this like a dope :)

Press  "#3 Icon Glossary"

From there select the part of the phone where you were seeing the icon and it will take you to the icon glossary. For example if you are looking for a definition of an icon (like those pesky envelopes) in your text messages, press "#5 Messaging"

I hope that helps!
