What does this icon mean on my Galaxy S2!

geek_michaelqian, Sep 17, 5:18 am
Got this phone today. Overall very happy, although the keypad takes a while to get used to. I have three identical icons in a row on the top left hand corner, they are the SAMSUNG APPS icons. On the big Samsung Apps Icon under Applications, there is a "1" on it. How can I get rid of this! Cheers

hmmm I just went into it, and updated something, now I've got 4 of those bloody things up there!

Maybe there is an update for some software you have!

More money than sense. I suggest you invest in brain research. Then you'll have first dibs in that pill they used in Limitless ROFL.

They are simply notifications. Run you finger from top most of the screen downwards - that'll open a window which gives you amongst other things the ability to view details of the updates and clear them if you don't want to see them anymore.

did you buy it brand new in a box with manuals! if so i suggest you read the manual, you paid for it you might as well use it. if not goggle samsung s2 manual pdf.

Is it updates/downloads!,i think you can actually drag them down and see what they are.

Were you an apple iphone user before hand!

How is a little "1" that indicates you have an update or notification not simple! As I recall, iOS uses the exact same method. And I think I also recall that iOS5 copies the exact notification pull-down bar that Android has had for years.

Fanboy fail.

Well simple or not, it still urged the OP to start this thread, so obviously not that simple for certain people.

what does the brief case with a check mark mean?

geek_guest, Oct 18, 1:23 am
The manual doesn't talk about all the various notification icons.

geek_anthea, Mar 16, 6:16 pm
Well it worked for me! And yes i did buy it in box with a manual but find it easier to be told by someone who knows how to talk to new users. Being over 13 it too me a while to understand it!!! THANK YOU
