    My wife's Lumia 640 has a new "thing" at the very top. I cannot remember the noun for those things, so I cannot look them up. And using words like "image" only gets me to the wrong thing.

    She's got something new up there next to the thing that looks like a data strength indicator, the Wi-Fi screen indicator and this new thing which sort of looks like bell with a zero there in the lower right corner of the bell. What are those things called?

    And what is this new thing? What is it supposed to be telling us? It doesn't show up on my 640.

    The "notification icons"?

    I think the bell means silent mode (do not disturb) is on.

    That's the status bar at the top... And the things are status icons. The bell actually has a crossed out circle next to it. ( 39548.png )

    You can see it if you hold the volume button until it hits 0 when on the Start screen.

    Thank you for responding. She has the volume at 10. And it still shows that. I don't understand. If this is for volume, then why is it telling us that it is at 0 when it very clearly is not?

    Thank you for responding. She doesn't have silent mode enabled.

    Try a Soft Reset. Hold the Volume Down + Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about 10 seconds). Soft Reset is a great go-to to solve many types of glitch.

    It would be helpful if you can post a screen shot here, or even take a picture of the said bar using another phone and upload it here :)

    Windows 10 mobile has two volume sliders, one for apps and for notifications.

    The former goes upto 30 and the latter only 10 however even at 10 it is pretty darn loud so I am not entirely sure on what measurement they agreed this one. Since on AU anything above 6 distorts the speakers quite heavily, I just hope the key testers haven't become tone deaf...
