What is the circle in the mmi screen?

Has anyone defined what the circle that acts like a hourglass doing? Just curious as it's always moving.

that's definitely it. i have assigned one of my "macros" to the message function so i can cycle through texts/emails with the push of one button and the controller knob. but i will say, the amount of time to get my message varies dramatically.

i have yet to figure out what gets the emails downloaded to my phone quickly (i think i may have to click "mark all as read" so my messages are cycled in faster). it happens sometimes.
