    Default Upside down Tear Drop Icon in Status Bar for T-Mobile LG G2

    Does anyone know what the upside down tear drop looking icon is in the status bar? I have never seen this icon before and all of a sudden it started appearing on my status bar. It seems to come and go. I cannot find anywhere that tells me what this icon is. In this screen shot, the icon between the "E" and the grayed out Bluetooth icon.

    Welcome to Android Central! That's the icon for GPS/location services.

    Hi Thank you. I was thinking it was something like that, but what I don't understand is that I turned my location services off in the settings but I am still seeing this icon. I'm wondering why I would be seeing it if location services are off? Also, why does it come and go? Thanks so much for your help!

    Is it Location Reporting that you've turned off, or all of Location? If you look at the Settings>Location menu, there should be a master switch at the top, which completely turns off Location. If you look lower on that screen, there's Location Reporting, which is different--if this is turned off, GPS still works.

    Anyone know what that "N" icon is next to the Bluetooth symbol? I can't figure it out.

    The "N" indicates that near-field communication (NFC) is turned on; turn off unless/until you need it.
