    Its for location services, i.e E911. Go to Setting>More>Location services. Access location to off will remove the bars, but not the diamond icon. Not sure how to get rid of that.

    You do know that the S4 has an icon glossary in the settings menu right?

    This is correct, but this should ONLY show up during and for about 10 minutes AFTER a 911 call is executed. This could have been an accidental call to 911, stopped in time to prevent getting answered, but the phone will still turn on Location. Its purpose is to track a possible victim if they've been able to dial 911 but can't communicate for whatever reason.

    Same here... Unless I have a custom rom flashed. But stock, that icon is always there.

    Thanks for the hack! My hubby gets irritated by that icon. Now I can flash that and get rid of it for him. :D
