I keep getting an unknown Koodo Notification on my Sony Z5. I have no clue what it is and I keep getting it every couple of minutes and I can't get it to go away.

Can anyone please tell me what this may be.. (see pic)

What happens when you click on it?
Did you just start using your unlocked Z5 with koodo?

Yes I did just start using the Z5 with koodo on Friday.

If I click and hold on the notification, it takes me to cell information page, I can force stop it through there but if I restart the phone it comes back. I still don't understand what it for and why its doing it..

Try a different network type. I noticed the cell signal is pretty low, so it might be a warning to that effect. If you're on LTE, try switching to WCDMA Only. Go to Settings > More > Cellular networks - tap Preferred network type and select either 3G or WCDMA Only. (Or go to the cell information page and make the network type change there).

Edit: You don't have to restart the phone when making a network type change.

Ya for some reason the area i live in, I get really poor cell signal. Its not even a new area of the city.

I've determined its a Cell broadcast notification.
