    It's your NFC icon. In the settings you can either turn NFC on or off but you can't get rid of the icon.

    Maybe either wired headset connected or hearing aid enabled.

    Can't do it with the AC app yet. Can do it with the old AC forums app (it's just like the CrackBerry one) here https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lkacf.activity

    Or you can just email it to me and I'll attach it for you jerry@androidcentral.com

    Maybe it's telling her to put on a helmet cause the phone is so fast it doesn't want her to get hurt??

    Looks as though the problem has been solved. I'm still going to post the screen shot as a reference.
