    I've wiped my phone and this symbol has returned again, any ideas of how it randomly keep appearing? Looks like a capital "W" over a "m"
    is there a way to post or attach a picture here?

    Take a screenshot by pressing home + power button at the same time. Then if you have the tapatalk app you can use that to upload the picture(not sure if the iMore app can do this, never used it). Another way, is to upload the picture on your computer(email it to yourself, upload it to a cloud service like google drive or dropbox or w/e it is you do to transfer pics from phone to computer) then in the reply field of this site you can upload the picture directly from your computer.

    Follow the screenshot to upload your pic here.

    I just want to say that I have not seen it before either. I looked and I don't see it on my phone.

    I've had odd things happen too. Try turning emoji keyboard off in settings. Then turn it back on. Go to settings>General>Keyboard>Keyboards>Tap edit>delete emoji Then go to add keyboard and add it back. Or do a hard reset.

    Where is it located on your keyboard? The screenshot is your recent used.

    Here is another one that discusses the same symbol, but pertaining to osx. Not sure if these links will help or not, but figured I would post them either way.

    Where is it located in the emoji keyboard? It is only in "recently used", or is it somewhere else...meaning which tab on the bottom are you seeing it in?

    The "Recently used" section generally uses the First In First Out method. Try using other emoji until the odd one gets bumped off "Recents".

    Yea, that is what I was going to suggest if that is the only location it is being seen.

    If this ever gets figured out maybe we can figure out where Jimmy Hoffa was buried.
