    Yup, it's the GPS/location services indicator. Looks like you have all GPS/location stuff off.

    That is the icon showing its off. When you turn on gps it adds three curved lines to the right. They removed the whole icon in 4.3

    Yup. No way to remove it on 4.1.2 without rooting

    Perfect, that answers why it has always been there.....I would rather it just go away entirely when it's off. I keep deferring 4.3

    Thank you both so much!

    Also, in settings - About Phone - icon glossary, it shows you what all the icons are, in case you don't want to open the manual

    Thank you, I do appreciate it, but I did look everywhere before I posted. I have the full note 2 manual right on my desktop computer, it doesnt show that picture icon. I also googled it to death, no luck, and I also tried what you suggested above and I dont find that on my phone either.

    You're right, it isn't there. Bad on Samsung.

    I know what you mean! Just when you're thinking, "I got this, my Google fu is strong today"....

    Hopefully the manual I linked to shows the icons correctly. It does when I pull it up (see screenshot below).
