Re: White x above my signal bars.

That x mark is there for us to know that Mobile Data is turned off. If you turn on mobile data it will dissappear. There's no way to remove it....

Re: White x above my signal bars.

Hi @Hollyg554,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

As @ytheekshana mentioned, the symbol you are seeing is indicating that Mobile data is currently switched off. In order to remove this symbol you will have to enable Mobile data traffic in your phone, this is done under Settings > Data usage or by swiping down the quick settings in your phone.

 

If you have any thoughts on this I'll be happy to forward any feedback you may have!

Don't stress, the small cross tells you that your mobile data is off  When you turn the mobile data on the cross will disappear.
