    With the latest update from today, I have noticed that both my WiFi icon and Mobile Data (currently 3G) are being displayed. I am guessing that both are active, killing my battery.

    Is anyone else seeing this?

    I don't think it's necessarily active like that, my woman's droid razr had the same thing in the status bar, and my s3 is the same way after the update

    Hmm, not sure if it's actually eating up your battery but the 3G icon shouldn't be showing. Only the 3G signal bars and WiFi signal bars should be on there. Have you rebooted phone since the update?

    Yes, I have rebooted multiple times. At first, the Mobile Data icon is not present, after the WiFi connects, but then appears.

    Let's see if any others who have gotten the update has the same issue. If not, maybe a factory reset?

    Ive always had that. If Wi-Fi is being used, you'll see the green and orange arrows light up. The 3g or 4g symbols arrows aren't lit up.

    I had that problem at work but now that I'm home it's gone, I'm just getting the wifi signal. Could it be the location had something to do with it?
