I've recently installed an automatic update on a Samsung Galaxy S7 (Android version 7.0) and since then a weird icon appeared on my top taskbar - a telephone receiver that rings, next to the 4g+ icon, ( screenshot attached) even though I am not calling anyone. Does anyone know what is that icon?


  • The phone is not in vibrate mode.

  • Check settings > sound > vibrate on ring. It is only meant to vibrate when ringing

  • Yes, that option is disabled. That means that the phone won't vibrate at all when ringing. I've tested it and it really does not vibrate.

  • I have turned vibrations on and the icon is still there, so it has nothing to do with vibrations

  • Tried that too. I set the volume to lowest, then to highest but the icon is still there.

Turns out it disappeard if I went to Connections-> mobile networks -> 4G call disable.

  • Hahaha. Funny if they solve their problems by themselves. 😂
