Default Removing icons from Notification Bar

So I just bought my Galaxy S4 and am loving it, but my notification bar is cluttered with icons on the right side. These are NOT the notifications you can click "clear" to remove. They are smart screen, GPS, Silent mode, wifi, 4G, signal bars, battery and a clock. Is there anyway to remove some of these? A non-root way?

I'll admit, coming from an iPhone the multitude of settings can be a little overwhelming, but I don't think I see a simple option for it.

Thanks for any help!

unfortunately i think you need root to do that. what i always hated was the little icons for emails and such that you can clear that seem to constantly clutter up the area up there. i preferred iOS's badge alerts with the perfectly clear notification bar up top only showing the vital stuff like battery, signal and that was it. even though Android does support rudimentary badge alerts, they still require the icons up top to work and if you disable that feature inside the apps it won't work anymore. Android really needs to incorporate the badge alert option for those of us who prefer it out of box IMO as i am so sick of having to constantly hit 'clear' to clean it up. badge numbers are so more organized.

Some of yours you can clear by simply turning off some things, like turn off your GPS (settings-->location and uncheck all of it) and turn off your wifi if not using it.

That's a bummer, I would rather have them enabled and just know they are instead of needing to see them... Do you know of a customizing app that might allow me to do that? Also (I don't think this needs a new thread) I am using goSMSpro and when I swipe to unlock upon receiving a new text it does not take me directly to the text, is there a way to change that?

There are non root statusbar customisation apps but tbh, they arent worth a ****. You really have to be rooted and use a mod
Im the same, i hate a cluttered statusbar. I dont even use battery or signal icons lol

For Go Sms, have you tried the "pop up" option?

Yes, but it doesn't work on the lockscreen for some reason. I have dashclock with let's me click the message then swipe unlock the phone so I guess it's not a big deal. Would be nice to have the message pop-up like iPhone then my swiping to unlock takes me directly to it, but maybe it's just something i need to get used to.

Maybe try messing around with different launchers. I use custom firmware now and i dont use a lockscreen so its hard for me to test but im sure Go used to put pop-ups over my lockscreen that i could reply to without unlocking. I could also set the screen to turn on when i received a txt.
I use Nova launcher.
I dont know if it was the firmware i was using, the lockscreen app, the launcher app or a Go Sms setting that caused this behavior or a combination of them though sorry

Maybe check out Widget Locker lockscreen app. I used that for a while. It isnt free though so check out the description and mail the developer (nice guy and an AF member) if it will do what you want

Lol well i dont need to know my signal bars, my signal is usualy good and if it was bad, my H or H+ signal would go away.
I use an app to display battery percentage so i dont need a picture showing me
And i love the clock being in the middle Attachment 56831

I prefer the image over percentage myself. Seeing the percentage dropping during use makes me nervous.

Mobile network is often an option when I'm visiting my deer friends or otherwise out and about. Most of my time I am near a WiFi and at work piggyback off theirs, so most of my voice use is through VoIP apps which also work with cellular data. The only thing I need is the icon telling me if I'm online or offline. I can certainly deal with a status bar not full of three gmail icons, one Google+ icon and a WeatherBug Elite severe alert. Would love it if I could make badge alerts universal. Little red numbers on all apps with counts. Sadly in Android that is only partially functional and I still get a status bar full of unnecessary icons. Whoever at Google thought folks prefer a icon cluttered notification bar vs clean, organized unread counts should have been fired

Bro, you know i love you.... BUT.... ..... if you "could care less" then that means that your level of "caring" could be very high because theres always a chance that you could care LESS than that.
Whereas, in the good ol' U of K, we say "i couldn't care less" which means that it would be impossible for us to care any less than we already do so we must care as little as is possible (0%)

Bloody yanks with their wrong phrases

In the USA the phrase "I couldn't care less" is a double-negative. Like "irregardless"

No! "Could care less".... think about "i could drink less", an alcoholic could say that in total honesty but if a non drinker said "i couldnt drink less", that would also be a truth

Hey if the UK loves Improper English fine there, the word "bloody" has no relation to being wounded or covered in blood. And soccer is football, and baseball is cricket.

And don't get me started on the metric system. Bragging about going 100kph gets you laughed at, even though it sounds fast, and temps in degrees Celsius always sound damn cold

The question is who ripped off of whom? Is cricket a ripoff of baseball or is baseball a ripoff of cricket? And rugby? Did it come before or after American football?

As for soccer, its not nearly as exciting as real football. The only game where one waits the entire match to see it end 0-0. Anyone ever hear of overtime? Soccer is the most boring sport to watch. It's just cross country running with a ball thrown in for no good reason

It's called football everywhere else in the world as well lol And baseball is baseball, not cricket

As for the metric system well... Objectively it's not even worth a debate.

A game that's played primarily with hands isn't "real" football. Soccer is real football, that's just a fact.

Tennis is boring too. Get neck strain just watching it. And wtf is it with all the grunting? I might change my vote for most boring sport to golf though. Sit for hours waiting for them to hit the damn ball, and when I think they missed and laugh, its a practice swing....d'oh!

Say what you want about the imperial measurements, but kph readings look way too fast, and Celsius looks way too cold! One time, my Android device malfunctioned in Weather bug and got stuck in celcius, I was like "wtf?!" It ain't MINUS FIVE DEGREES! on wait, celcius again!"

Boring or not it is one of the most popular sports on earth, no question about it so it must be objectively exciting to an extent.

As for the metric conmment, that's just because you don't use the metric system lol , I'd be weirded out too if my weather app displayed the degrees in fahreinheit.

IPhone notifications and Notifier Pro are both great apps that work well.
They will both work over a 3rd party lock screen.

You can get it actually. Get Nova Launcher Prime, Tesla Unread Plugin and MissedIt. MissedIt is capable of detecting notifications for just about every app you have, and do it properly. Tesla Unread Plugin can be set to get it's notification data from MissedIt, so anything MissedIt detects, TUP can make a badge alert for. You need Nova Prime to get TUP working though.

i would try Prime on my tablet but i am not going to replace TSF Shell on my phone. it's just too neat to get rid of. it worked well if i used MissedIt! only on my Fire, unfortunately with Tesla it wouldn't refresh on its own requiring me to reload Prime to get them to update with new data, and, it still needs the icon on the status bar as a reference to the count. i would like it if i didn't have to keep hitting 'clear all' over and over again.

One 'bug' at a time i guess i got rid of everything else Android annoyed me with, discovered how to disable ANR and crash dialogs. logcatting and peeking in the Java code i found out that almost every app available has some sort of 'onforceclose' or 'on backaction' or somesuch. one of them had something to do with not responding, and some background receivers are normally enabled for things like crashreporter (shows the 'unexpected error, send report' in the notification area) and crashdialogbox (name varies, produces ANRs/Force Close notices under certain variables. disabling those 'features' and if and when an app does crash it just silently exits iOS style.

EDIT: again, since my phone runs Android 2.3, Nova Launcher won't run on it, Prime or no Prime. no amount of rooting will change that lol
