GPS won't turn off!

Hi guys,

I have a problem with the GPS that I don't think is unique to the GS4 only ... cause I had it on my S2LTE in the past, and my wife's Note 2 also has the same problem.

Basically, I can turn on GPS no problem, but after turning it on, it will not turn off even though the GPS icon is turned off from the notification bar, and the GPS sign also disappears from the main bar. Checking on the battery stat shows GPS remains all along.

This can only be fixed by a reset, but the next time I turn GPS on, once again I need to reset the phone to turn it off.

Anyone knows how to fix this? I already have location services turned off. This doesn't seem to be located to google services at all, instead it seems to be a Samsung thing that doesn't turn GPS off.

This only seems to happen after upgrade to 4.3 as well.


Thanks in advance!
