    I have a Verizon S3 (4.3 with the MF1 to ML1 update) and noticed a new icon in the Gallery. If you can't see the attachment, it's between the Gallery icon and the Share icon on the left side. I'm guess it's to allow sharing with another device.

    When I click on it for that photo, I lose the ability to share that photo via the normal methods. Also, when I view my photos in Gallery, the pictures where this is activated are replaced by an icon of a person with a lightning bolt.

    What is this and how can I deactivate it?

    Seems like a chromecast/AllShare-like thingy to me. Probably doesn't help :p

    The sharing is the arrow head with the dots I think that changes the view to grid
