    Default Sprint Note 3: What happened to my brightness control bar?

    Until this morning it was always there in my top/drag down feature. Just disappeared.. Yes I searched this so if I missed it Oh well. Search feature needs improvement for sure. Any ideas?

    Any chance your phone is 5% or below on battery? It will disappear when it's 5% or lower. Maybe it will also happen if you have power save mode on? I don't have power save mode on, so I can't be sure.

    Z, did you accidentally turn it off in the notification drop down? You know where the wifi, screen rotation etc are located? The two finger Swipe down, then edit, toggle on....

    Yes, that's it. Did you do a reboot yet? The only time mine disappeared was when I updated to 4.4.2 and I had to toggle it back on. If a reboot and a cache clearing doesn't help, I'm stumped.

    That is so weird. I had the little hand icon in my notification bar for about 3 hours the other day then it went away. I've had the hand motion on since day one and it was the first time it popped on. Definitely weird.

    Well, I finally said the heck with it and installed a widget. Just so happen that I needed to change my battery so I did and what do ya know? It was back... The old battery pull trick. I like the widget better.

    I was going to suggest a battery pull but it is so clich, it's funny. I use it when a reboot doesn't work for whatever reason. Glad you got it back lol

    This isn't bashing any phones, but what happens in this case with a sealed battery since a reboot didn't help in your situation? I'm seriously curious.

    Good point.. I will never have a sealed again. I think my evo lte was the one and only I had. Probably why that was my last htc and switched to Samsung.. Now I have had both brands for a long time and for me Samsung is the clear winner. EDIT : DON'T know how I responded to this post,, I never even seen this post,, oh well.

    I have a note 2. I took the battery out and put it back in. It is still messed up. Is there a solution?
