    The first one means your phone is connected in debug mode to a computer, and the other that it's on vibration mode :)

    @Jack That means that the phone is currently connected to a HSPA+ phone network (better speeds than 3G, but not quite 4G), in your picture your phone is connected to wifi, which is why it doesn't show the phone data connection type.

    Please note that the USB debugging icon varies depending on the version of Android, for example in 4.0 (ICS) it is an ice cream sandwich shaped android, in 4.1 (JB) it is a jelly bean shaped android head, etc. Vibration mode icon has changed in new versions of Android too (currently being a tilted smartphone with straight lines surrounding it).
