Really f*cking annoying

I have a phone contract with, Myfone and a Htc One.

Tonight I received an update request. I accepted it and everything went smoothly.

However, I now have an additional icon in the top status bar. I have no clue as to what it is or how to get rid of it if i don’t want it!

I’m not even sure how to describe it. It’s immediately to the left of the mobile data download status icon and looks like the capital letter N.

What is it? I’ll be going into my local Myfone store tomorrow to ask them and report back to anyone else who has the same question.

probably NFC (for touch payments / phone to phone connection)

Turn it off in settings.

NFC. Go to settings -> more -> disable NFC. Done.

Same thing happened to me after Kit Kat.
