    Default 3-Newbie questions (new to the LG G2) Help?

    Hello All,

    I'm new to the G2 and have several questions that I could not find answers to elsewhere. Maybe someone will know:

    1) Is it "normal or standard" that Wi-Fi will always "turn itself on" whenever I have my G2 turned on and plug it into the wall charger? Seems odd to me, but maybe that's standard for some reason? I've noticed that if my G2 is off, and I plug it into the wall charger, then after charging take it out of the wall charger and turn on the G2,...... Wi-Fi is not turned on in that case, only when the G2 is on, and then I plug it into the wall charger, it will then always turn on the Wi-Fi.

    2) I notice that when I turn my G2 on from being fully off or from sleep and the screen is locked, until I unlock (I use pattern unlock), I get an intermittent flashing Icon in the top left corner of the notification bar, that looks like a "rectangle with an eyeball in it".....what the heck is that about? As soon as I unlock the G2, then the intermittent flashing Icon will not appear anymore.

    3) Which leads to another good question: Where can I find a chart that simply lists "all" the potential Icons that will display in the status/notification bar areas? A google search will produce limited Icons charts, but obviously not a full list. I can't find the above noted "rectangle with eyeball" Icon anywhere. Nor others I've seen. There must be some kind of master chart that lists all the potential Icons somewhere?

    Thanks for any and all help with these questions.

    greatly appreciative,

    OK, I think I might have a couple answers for you.

    1) in network settings, go to WiFi and then tap the bottom menu icon to go into advanced settings. There is an option to "Keep WiFi on during sleep" and a choice for "Only when plugged in". See if that is selected.

    2) Been searching for the "rectangle with an eye on it" and the best I can come up with is that you have turned on smart screen which keeps the screen active while you are looking at it. To turn it on and off you can find the settings under display.

    3) There is a relatively complete chart of icons right on your phone. Open the app drawer and look for the help icon. You'll find the list of icons there.

    Hope that helped.

    Hello TNCattleDog,

    Thanks for your help with my three newbie questions.

    Re: no1 - I already had the option turned off under Wi-Fi for "Keep WiFi on during sleep".

    So still don't know why my Wi-Fi keeps turning itself on when I charge my phone?

    Re: no2 and no3 - Got it, thank you.

    You help make this forum a great place.

    much appreciated.

    I'm wondering if the wifi thing's a Google location setting? There's a similar problem on the Sprint forum, it has to do with their connection optimizer, but Verizon does not have that.
