Anyone know why the 4g/3g icon stays on the status bar while I'm connected to WiFi? My status bar is getting extremely cluttered... On my Galaxy S4, it went away when I disabled caller ID but it didn't work on this phone.

I believe it is just to show you what network you are on. still uses wifi just shows as like a backup if that makes sense

I think it's a sense thing. All the icons up there are annoying me. At one point I only had 3 notification icons available after blue tooth alarm vibrate battery percent and then there's a couple that pop up and I'm not sure what causes them.

It's not a sense thing. It is part of the Caller ID crap that Verizon puts on your phone. It is using your wifi not cell data. If and when we achieve root and you use titanium backup to uninstall the caller ID, it will disappear. My SGS4 had the same thing on it till I rooted and used titanium backup to uninstall. If you disable the caller ID app it may remove the icon.

It is part of the app whether disabled or not it may also be integrated into the operating system that's all you had to titanium backup to actually uninstall it

It started for me with the 4.4.2 update on the M7. Guess they carried it over.
