    I have this icon on my notification bar that i can't figure out what its to. Its the far left one. Looks like a bullseye with a signal meter on it.
    Anyone know what its for and how can i turn it off??

    I believe its showing your wifi is on. I don't have an S4 but I also don't see why your 4G is connected at the same time...thinking, give me a few years.. or it may be your GPS now that I looked again. I'm sure someone with an S4 can help ya better then me..

    It's not in the icon glossary. It's also on whether you're using 4G or wifi.

    The one on the far left is the E911 icon. You can't turn it off as far as I understand.

    Yeah I have tried everything to disable it and no luck. I even tried Airplane mode and its still on there! haha its a little frustrating I guess. I just upgraded yesterday from a Razr Maxx and never had that on my Razr. Does anyone know if having that feature on affect the battery life?

    On my GN2, under location services in settings, disabling “Google location services" will turn it off. I bet it works the same in the G4. I always have mine enabled (just in case someone kidnaps me, they will be able to find me, jk). Any affect on my battery seems minimal (regularly get 12-24 hrs with minimal effort to conserving battery).

    I tried that and by turning off ALL location services it only removed the curved signal bars but the bullseye is still there. Oh well, I will just have to learn to live with it.
