    3G and WIFI shown here too. Both are showing down and upload arrows. Google Play is also running in the background. Battery drain is faster.

    I noticed this on my screen last night too. It seemed like WiFi would work & then 3G would. Seems like this made web access very slow. I also rebooted. Root is gone now as well.

    I have either a 4G or 3G indicator when my Wifi is on too. Its only the the first day but I'm seeing early indication of faster battery drain. I may do a hard reset this weekend and see if that helps at all. (hard reset sure helped my Nexus after its most recent update)

    Everyone relax, this is normal with any new update from Verizon, the reason you are getting both icons at the top is because certain Verizon apps that are being updated only use 4G LTE, it is a security issue implemented by Verizon, it should go away after those apps are updated, also if you notice anytime any data is being transmitted there is two small arrows beneath the WiFi or the LTE icon that are flashing "transmitting the data", so you know if your WiFi or your Verizon Data service is transmitting the data..

    Still sucks the battery down like chocolate milk thru a straw. I talked to a tier 2 tech and he said to turn off data when using wifi and vice versa, but I told him I had never had to do that before this update came out. He also told me that samsung know about this and are supposed to be working on a patch. Hope it comes soon, I can't even send mms unless I turn off wifi and turn on data. Its nuts.

    Here is the fix people, go to settings>Application Manager>scroll right to ALL, now scroll down to Caller Name ID and DISABLE it, problem solved, that's what this extra little app that Verizon decided to bake into this ROM does, they want to keep track of your mms, LOL.

    Note: Do not thank me, thank gandalf607 on the Verizon message boards, this same issue and fix has also been posted on the XDA message boards.

    Great find! I did not want the service anyway, so not a big deal to disable it. Thanks to you for repeating it here, and Gandalf607 for the solution.

    It says disabling could cause other apps to not function properly. What if doing this messes up other apps. Is there a way to reverse it.
