Default Unknown notification icon (SIM related.) Can any of you help me out?

Hey folks. I recently got an LG spectrum 2 (vs930, 4g LTE verizon phone. GSM quad band unlocked)

I'm using lycamobile(prepaid) but for information sake I have tried with an ATT sim, tmobile sim, and this lycamobile sim. APN setup.

Calls, Text, and Data all work fine. Contacts to and from sim card works fine.

But I have this ONE notification(no matter which sim is inserted) on my status bar that will NOT go away. Its on the right side so there is nothing in the drop down shade about it. I have exhausted google and can't come up with anything.

If you know what this is, PLEASE tell me. It's not the same as the sim+cog notification. I've removed simtoolkit and it stays.

I just want to get rid of it something fierce.

Im interested too, im using it outside USA (Mexico) on gsm and that icon appear with this carrier's TELCEL, IUSACELL, Unefon but if I insert a Movistar sim card the icon disappears... that's rare

I have exposed framework so I think maybe a module can hide it

perhaps, your sim card need to be registered, but if everything work fine, it's weird, maybe you should go to your phone store, and ask it there...

Everything work fine, and I see everybody using it on gsm have the same icon, the weird think is why with Movistar sim that icon don't appear, same icon spear on my LG intuition and again with Movistar disappear... only with that carrier Sim cards

So I was searching a mod that can hide the icon I think there should be a way to do it

Finally I take out that unknown SIM icon from notification bar...

To make it disappears just do the follow steps.

1.-you should be rooted

2.-with a root explorer or build.prop editor modify this line:

ro.build:target_operator=VZW

To this:

ro.build:target_operator=OPEN

3.- reboot your phone and done, that icon will never apear again

I try this and is successful in my spectrum 2 and my lg intuition (in this model the line apear twice, modify both), so I think this should work with other models like the Lg-G2... just try it doing a backup first
