Re: Notification symbol

I 'assume' the symbol resembles a half moon. If so, it is the Do Not Disturb feature, and when it is enabled, you generally will receive any audible alert notifications. To disable it, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to bring up the Control Center. Afterwards, tap on the half moon icon to disable it.
