Hi there
On my HTC ChaCha I have a "R" on the notification bar just above the signal strength bars I don't know how to remove this or what it is trying to tell me sometimes the "R" changes to a "X" if that happens a notice comes on on the screen saying emergency calls only.

I have 2 HTC ChaCha phones the second one (used by my wife ) does't act like this at all.

Please can somebody help me to sort this problem.

Hans Brunott.

I couldn't find anything similar in the posts on our site or online but it might be that you have a simcard issue. I had something similar with my old Vodafone card a couple of years ago. I'd try switching the sim cards on your phone for a day or two and see if the problem doesn't replecate itself on your wife's phone. If it does, then it's a sim card issue. If your phone still has the error with your wife's sim in it, then it's a problem with either the phones hardware / software or your providers network. In that case I would contact the store where you got the phone and see if they can do something about it.

Hope that helps.
