    Just noticed this since the update. It's never run in running services before and freezing it SEEMS to kill off data. Can anyone else verify this?

    Unfroze it and have since had steady 4G connectivity.

    edit: disregard. 4G LTE outage was the culprit

    Just updated and also saw this in running services for the first time. Went into Titanium and froze it and I haven't lost data. Tried to reboot phone to see if made any difference and data is still working. Weird that you guys are having issues with freezing it. Will update if anything changes.

    Just froze Verizon location and data is working fine. Maybe you guys were having problems due to the 4g outage yesterday. Try rebooting/refreezing today.

    I have that frozen as well and I just changed mine back to 4G/3G mode and I got nothing. I just unfroze it and I am rebooting will see if data comes back.

    Edit: Sorry just froze the App again and turned on 4G and it connected fine, guess that app had nothing to do with my connection problem. Don't think I waited long enough for the 3G/4G hand off on my previous test. This app will stay frosty.

    Forgot about this one :) yes the 4G LTE outage was the reason data was dropping in and out.

    It's frozen and working fine
