    Hi,
    I have Galaxy Note 8.
    The last month about there is ikon looks like wifi with a small sqauar on it that its popping up on the top near the time and disappearing after less then a second few times a day, its not the wifi, the wifi is on the other side. What it could be?

    Thank you

    It might mean that the phone is using wi-fi calling to send or receive SMS/MMS messages (that little rectangle is actually a messaging icon). Do you have wi-fi calling on? Also, which carrier are you on?

    Thank you. How do I turn off this wifi calling? I didn't had this before.
    I am from Israel so I'm not sure the carrier is helpful?

    Turn wifi calling couple ways if you have that feature
    1.Setting>connection >should see toggle
    2.pull down notification panel should see toggle
    3.phone app settings>toggle

    I don't think that's it. That icon has a magnifying glass in it, while the one you see in your status bar has a messaging icon in it.

    I think it is because I was playing with the notifications on the lockscreen I did clicked on "not showing" and it didn't show and then I did "show" + sound and I just now saw it with that sound I gave it to be. I know the ikon is a bit different but I believe it is it
