    Default unknown status bar symbol/icon

    Yesterday I noticed a new symbol/icon in my status bar to the left of the bluetooth icon. It looks like an "ear with signal" (see pic attached). Anybody know what it represents or what app/function/setting it is related to? I noticed increased battery drain since this icon appeared. Thansk!

    Under "call" you have enabled the hearing aid icon.

    Settings> Call> uncheck "Hearing Aids"

    You probably did it by mistake.

    I bet the NSA has something to do with it, what with PRISM and all.
