Telstra Superior Home Screen Icons

When I Select a Contact and Click on the 3 dots in the top right of the screen, I can Create a Shortcut.

That's OK and it Puts it on my Home Screen.

But it Creates a small Overlay type symbol in the bottom right.

This occupies about 25% of the shortcut.

It's similar to the shortcut arrow windows puts on some it's icons.

On my previous phone Alcatel u5 3g I could just drag a contact to the home screen without any overlay.  

Does anyone know of a way to remove it.

Or is there another way to do it without creating this overlay.

Hi John,


I appreciate you taking the time to reach out in regard to the home screen icons. It may be worth reaching out to Alcatel in relation to the removal if the overlay on the home screen shortcut icons as I'm not sure if this is something we can actually alter.


Have you only just contacted us in relation to the icon overlay?
