    I kind of remember seeing something similar a while ago, I'll try to find the thread.

    I moved your thread to the S7 forum for better visibility.

    Is NFC enable? If so, disable it and see if the icon is still there.

    Sorry for the delay. All I found relates to a similar icon on the left side of the status bar, from old apps that didn't update to the new standards after MM. Your case is a bit different, being the icon on the right side.

    Have you already tried safe mode to rule out any third party app that you downloaded? Are you using any theme or module?

    Javier, No worries on the delay. We changed the theme back to default and ran the safe mode and the rectangle disappeared. Then turned safe mode off and it stayed gone. So it must have been the theme. Changing the theme was the first thing i did but I never restarted the phone.
    Thanks for all the help.
