    Voice Privacy?

    Go to settings > phone info > icon glossy. Then scroll down and look for voice privacy. There is a little "p" icon.

    I have voice privacy turned on. (don't really know what it does, but it is on)

    When make a phone call, why don't I get a "P" in the status bar? In fact, I never have seen that P light up.

    On the other hand, lets take a look at the "S" for secure - If bring up My Verizon, the "S" lights up in the top to tell me it is secure.....so when I make a phone call, why don't I get a P for Privacy?

    Ideas?
    Thanks!

    In other words, turn the feature off, and don't worry about it.
