    Greeting all,

    This is my biggest grievance with my new phone so far, the only way I can see what signal and if I am connected to WIFI etc, is to double tap an invisible section at the very top of the phone and then this information pops down.

    Am I missing an obvious setting here? Is there anyway to keep this information displayed at all times when on the home screen?

    Thanks

    No way to keep it displayed but a double tab isn't needed. A single tap or a slide motion will do.

    Thanks for the heads up, surely it's an obvious feature that's been overlooked? Do you know of any apps out there that have been built to display everything in one big wide tile?

    Its an intentional design, present since WP7. Never found it to be an inconvenience.

    It's a minor inconvenience, but it just takes some getting used to for those coming from other devices.

    Keeping the carrier bar up at all times really ought to be an option, but there are a host of other things I'd rather see fixed/added first.

    This is NOT a minor inconvenience!! Obviously the people who think that way never use their phone in a location with a bad signal. I work in an auto part manufacturing plant and I only get a signal in 2 spots in the entire building (which is HUGE btw). And when I do get that signal, it is usually 1 bar and cuts in and out. It would be nice to have the signal displayed so I can know when I am or am not connected. This is a pretty big blow to me...I just got the 920. Maybe I should return it for the S3....

    The display bar shows automatically only when you do not have a signal. If it's not showing then you are connected.

    That would be good if it were correct, weepatc, but it does not match my experience. I have lots of 'connect to WiFi' prompts when there is no sign of a dropped connection. Definitey would like to have WiFi and cellular status permanently displayed with the time and battery status!
