Default Samsung Galaxy S3 - Notifications Icon

I've had my lovely new S3 for 24 hours now and love the look and feel of it.

One problem though is the annoying new message icon in the top right hand corner of the weather widget on the home screen.

I've tried all of the fixes that have been suggested on this forum (v. helpful by the way).
- deleting the widget and then reinstalling
- factory reset
- deleting the widget and then doing a factory reset
- checking that there are no messages out there unread.

Any other suggestions please!

Thanks

Are you talking about the little number 1 in the sun on the weather widget? Supposedly it's just an accident, but other threads say that it indicates Daylight Savings Time. Apparently nothing you can do about it right now.

Indicating daylight savings would make sense as it's a sun symbol!
Thanks - v helpful.

Now I just need to play around with phone and get used to the amazing features.

So that's what it is! It had been irritating me too. Happy to know why it's there.

Sure, there's something you can do about it: use a different weather widget! I didn't like the stock weather widget on my LG Spectrum so I purchased Beautiful Widgets when it was on sale for ten cents. One of the best deals ever for me.

That's the beauty of Android; if you don't like an aspect of it, change it.

That indicates the feature that senses if you're looking at the screen or not - can't remember what it's called.

It's Big Brother watching you! Actually it's the icon for "Smart Stay".

Tap and drag down (right to the bottom of the screen) the notification bar. It will indicate what the problem is, and what you need to do
