    The one that looks like a Celtic Cross with the signals emitting from it in this screenshot. I think it's some type of location service, but I can't find any definite information nor does it ever go away.

    I think it is for the 911 and Google/carrier location services.

    Tapped from my Verizon locked bootloader S III

    It is the E911 service, and you can't make it go away. It has been annoying me since day 1.
