What does the little phone icon mean next to text messages?

    Just wondering, why do some messages have a little phone icon and others don't?


    I have been missing some text messages on my phone and wonder if this is linked...

        Great question. Looking at the examples in the screenshot, it looks like it's an indicator as to where the contact is stored. For example, the DIGITS app may be reading the second number as one that's stored to your phones memory. This is just a guess, but I thinking you probably don't have that top number saved as a contact anywhere. Side note: I've noticed a sim card icon that shows up next to my contacts which makes sense to me since I know these contacts are stored there.
