    Contact shortcut?

    Press and hold the icon and slide it to the top of your screen. A trash can icon will appear and turn red when you are over it. Release your finger from the icon and it will be deleted.

    He was saying it's INSIDE his phone app, not on the home screen (if I'm reading it correctly)

    I think that's for video calling if your carrier had it enabled.

    I have been reading and doing some searches.
    This is for VoLTE that was added by Rogers in Canada and i think Verizon in the US.
    even if I Disable the option, the icon stays there.
    and the location of the icon is annoying

    you should be able to remove the app by long pressing & moving to trash can or installing another launcher - Nova is a good choice. You may not have it on your phone, but on mine you can go to app folder then "Help" app and it shows how to modify the favorites bar.

    It's a button within the Phone/Dialer app, not the app itself. I think we've established that it's for VoLTE calling (and possibly video calling over LTE).

    Correct.
    I Have called LG themselves.
    The button cannot be removed. some careers that already launched VoLTE and Videocalling started offering this option.

    Have you tried enabling and disabling "Advanced Calling"? That should change the phone screen icons up.
