    Just got a new S9 plus. Everything seems to be working fine except for one annoying thing...

    I have a constant notification that says: "Tap here to confirm or update emergency location information, etc...." and when I tap on it, it pops up a message saying "Unable to activate Wi-Fi calling at this time. Please try again later".

    I have an unlocked phone on Verizon. My understanding is that Wi-Fi calling does not work with unlocked phones. Which is fine. But how can I get rid of that notification? It doesn't go away when I clear notifications, and I can't swipe left or right to get rid of it.

    I do not have Wi-Fi calling turned on in my settings.

    What can I do?

    The next time you get that notification, long press on it and Choose the gear symbol. From there disable notification

    Thanks for the suggestion. The notification is always there.

    I tried long pressing on it and just get the message that the notification can't be turned off. See screenshots.
