    I have an Icon that isn’t listed. It looks like a pair of eye glass frames o o with a line across the top attaching them. What is that ?!

  2. says

    Icon at top of screen looks like an inverted check mark with a regular check mark next to it giving the appearance of the letter N. The 2 do not touch each other.

    There’s a fire looking symbol right behind where it says 4G lte on my phone. Just appeared within the past hour. My phone isn’t slow or anything but I can’t figure it out
