    Can you upload a picture so we know what you are seeing?

    Is it a Google brand phone? They've been deleting accounts of people selling to unauthorized resellers?

    This is a request for help, not news, so I moved it to the Android Lounge. :)
    Looks like the image shown now that it is a normal thread. :)

    I've never seen anything like that x on a homescreen before. Is it always there @Arrow7019? Which phone do you use and where is the homescreen picture from?

    That's looking like a plus sign to add a shortcut to a blank screen.
    Swipe left or right.
    Part of your launcher is my guess

    That could even be part of the wallpaper aesthetically (creates an old film camera viewfinder look). I assume it remains if you change wallpaper?

    I'd certainly check the launcher settings if it only appears on the home screen. Can you interact with it? If you put an icon there does that cover it (i.e. does it behave like part of the wallpaper or something above it?)?

    It's always there, I hold down the screen and it goes away temporarily. But upon starting my phone, it's back on the screen. Its an Alcatel 7

    I swipe and swipe but it only goes away for a bit. The screen stays the same. It doesn't take me anywhere

    Full press on a blank/clear space on your screen then when the "wallpaper" choice shows up try a different picture.
    Is there still a +?
