Odd BlackBerry 8700 BT question

I have a non-iDrive 2006 330i that I picked up last September. The day I bought it, I paired my 8700g and it worked perfectly. The phone book synched, etc. Also, every time it connected to the car, the triangle icon next to the signal meter would turn into a picture of a phone.

This week I had to replace my 8700. I have successfully paired it with the car, and all addresses have synched, but I've only seen the triangle turn into a picture of a phone once, last night after I had been on the phone for over 5 minutes. This morning on my way to work, the triangle icon never changed to a phone.

What does this mean? Is there some functionality that is not working properly? If so, then what do I do to fix it? Am I being too anal? Thanks in advance.

I should add that I did a search and read the threads that say the triangle = roaming. I don't think that's the issue with my phone/car, because my prior 8700 NEVER showed the triangle, except right at start up, regardless of where I took the car. The places I'm getting the triangle now are places that I drive all the time and know T-Mobile has its own towers.

These are separate icons, roaming and missed calls.

You might see the roaming icon if you have an older phone or SIM. Reason: unknown but minor incompatibility.

Happens in one of our cars when using the SE T610 allthe time.
