    I have a weird notification at the top of the Galaxy note 3 that shows data transfer but unlike the 3G and 4G data that is vertical this notification is green and red and are horizontal. Anyone have any idea what this notification might be? It's bugging me.

    The icon to the right of your mystery icon is wifi, which doesn't appear unless it's on. It's possible that you have it set to allow Google's location services to use wifi even when you have it off.

    That's weird because I never had that set to use it.

    Those green and red icons in the icon glossary that I posted in the other thread represent the icons in your recent calls list, showing whether a recent call was sent or received. I don't know that we ever determined why they appear in the notification bar.

    One clue might be that neither of the screen shots we've seen from posters show the 4G LTE icon, only a generic signal strength.

    Maybe you get that when you're just connected via 3G, because the generic signal strength icon doesn't show up/down traffic. That's my guess.

    Joey, here's what I mean. Notice the 4G icon includes up/down indicators.

    Edit: Eh, strike that. I see it's in the screenshot awwwyeah posted, along with the 4G icon.

    Yeah, I'm thinking it has to do with the incoming/outgoing phone calls... but for some reason it stayed in the notification bar. I put it in Airplane mode and it came off. Turned Airplane mode back on and it came back up. Once I restarted the phone it went away. It's a strange little icon. :D
