Mobile device icons

If you notice a blue mobile device icon next to your contact's name, that means they're using IM Forwarding or AIM TXT.  The purpose of the icon is to let you know that these users are using mobile devices with limited messaging capabilities. This helps to set the expectation that messages may take longer to type or be shorter in length. If your contacts are using AIM Mobile apps, or the New AIM you won't see mobile device icons next to their Usernames.
