Just curious why when I'm in house I always keep wifi on and for some reason the 4G icon keeps showing up in status bar for a few seconds or minutes and show that it's receiving and sending data. I see the arrows lighting up. I'm not rooted yet and I know about carrier iq so I have an app that blocks that. So I don't no why my 4G keeps switching on. Any ideas. Thanks

Turn Off Download Booster
Turn Off Download Booster because it uses both WiFi and Data to speed up download times. Also, turn of roaming and if you really want to get down..... turn Data off completely. If rooted..... you can add a Data toggle by using

SqEditor lite v2.1...

Go to Settings Storage/settings.db/system/(Scroll down and find) notification_panel_active_app_list_for_reset/..... add this...

MobileData;

You can also add

WiFiHotspot;

Type it exactly as I showed you above..... then save it and reboot. You will now have those toggles available to you. So just turn off Data real easy...... Hope it helps
