Questions and Answers

I can't figure out what this symbol is on my Samsung S4 Verizon phone?

The symbol is next to my alarm clock and it looks like a upside down J interlocking with another normal J.

It is more likely a notification in one of the apps installed on your device. It is not a usual icon to see and so you must really check each of your apps to see what that means. It is more likely an indicator that a certain function is enabled. In most cases, it would suit the logo of the app so check which one among them actually match with what you see.

It is the near field communications symbol. It means your near field (NFC) communications has been activated. This allows you to touch connect to paired devices or transfer data to other suitably enabled devices. You can turn this off by swiping down from the top of the screen. In the upper right hand corner of the screen (next to the settings gear symbol) is another symbol for selecting to display the menu for all your system tools. Normally, some of them are hidden. You will see the symbol for NFC. If it is highlighted in green, NFC is enabled and the interlocking J's will be displayed at the top of your screen. Just touch tap to turn it off.

Connectivity icon is missing and I don't know why?

Hello, I have no bars that show connectivity. I just received my phone today and have had no other problems except for this. Initially I had empty bars and question mark, so I restarted my phone, now the entire icon is gone. What to do?
