Default Unfortunately VZWAVSSERVICE has stopped.

So I started getting freeze happy with all the apps in the "verzion folder" (which was strangely in a group called verizon under ALL APPS) When I deleted all but 1 of the apps in the group folder, the folder melted to reveal the lone app. I rebooted and discovered this message at startup. play store had lots of updates for those frozen vzw apps and more and they kicked off and updated while still frozen. I defrosted all apps and of course they did not end up in the verizon folder but as indvidual apps outside verizon group folder.
None of that ended up being the problem.

The problem turned out to be taking the google+ update

The solution,

Go to settings -> Application manager -> VZWAVSService then hit disable.

son of a B. gotta go back and freeze vzw crap all over again.
