It's important to be able to see your notifications on your device, Cariebee. Does anything happen at all when you try to pull down to access your notifications? You mentioned that you took your phone to a store to have it looked at. Can you verify the troubleshooting steps that have been completed in order to try to resolve this issue? Did the store recommend a factory reset as a final step in order to get your notification bar back?
