    Default Unknown icon

    I keep getting a strange icon on the notification bar. It looks like a satellite dish with a few waves coming from it. It's not a symbol I've seen before on any phone. I've a screen grab but don't know how to attach it using th AC app! Anyone have any ideas what it might be

    You've never had a phone with GPS?

    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8_V...p=docslist_api Hopefully That link will work. Having had a SGS 3, nexus 4 and a note 3 I can tell you it's not the symbol used to show GPS.

    You didn't grant access to the photo. I think I know what you're talking about but I can't be sure.

    It doesn't really matter whether we can see the picture or not, the answer to your question is GPS. There are two different GPS icons in the notification bar. The one you're referring to is displayed when the phone is actively obtaining and using a GPS fix. The other one, the persistent one that looks like a compass, shows to let you know whether GPS is on or not.
