    Hello everyone! I recently got my Samsung Galaxy S9 and as soon as I started using it, I noticed leeter H crossed icon in my status. Does anyone know what is it and how to use it?

    Is it on the left side or right side of the status bar?

    I see you posted just as I responded.

    You mean that faded one between the wi-fi icon and network strength bars?

    Never seen that before.

    Yes, that's the one. I tried almost everything, I also read a lot of topics on forums, but I didn't find nothing like this.

    When I turn on mobile data, I have only H icon. But when I turn it off, it's crossed. I never seen it before.

    I have to mention that my cousin sent me this phone from USA. I'm in Europe. It is from Verizon. Mobile data works, I got it unlocked on my network. But this H icon just can't dissapear.

    But, cellular bars show 4 out of 5, and wi-fi should take over anyway.

    Are you thinking that's supposed to be "H+" ? Seems mighty small to be the cell network type.

    I know the meaning of this icon, I just can't seem to move it from my status bar. I didn't notice that anyone else have this problem when they turn off their mobile data.

    Yeah OP getting H or H+ is service indicator, like you would see 4g or 4glte the bars will always remain there
    Wifi is there next to it

    Actually that might be it. It just may not have the bands to get better than H+

    But, usually, when it switches to Wi-Fi, the cell type goes away completely.

    Maybe, being on another carrier, it doesn't know what to show.

    I noticed also that I can't see the message chat settings. I guess it is also carrier problem.

    On my S9, or any phone I've ever had, the cell network goes away completely when connected to Wi-Fi. I still get cell signal strength, but not the type anymore.
