I have a battery symbol with a broken triangle in it not sure what this is? Please help am I being hacked?
Since getting this phone for my son I’m having problems with his phone from qlink.com and my phone I purchased with another company, my service is from republic wireless and I have wi if from cox. I’m having problems making phone calls and receiving phone calls with both phones. Getting error 082 and my phone doesn’t even ring
Yes and no, it answered one of my internet questions but unfortunately I could not find an icon for the other question. It’s similar to the internet and arrows icon except in stead of arrows it shows a single question mark instead, no icon and sadly I still have no clue as to what it means and why it’s popping up on my tablet. Can you please help me?

I hope you can help me. My android tablet is showing as connected to wifi but then a down arrow appears in the center of the fan shaped icon. The arrow appears for a few seconds disappears then shows again.
I thought that it might be showing that I’m receiving data. This never showed before and I don’t have anything open but my battery is draining quickly.
Thanks for your insight.
