    Default Data icon when on WiFi

    Just upgraded from the M7 to the M8. Have noticed that the data icon does not go away when on WiFi taking up unnecessary notification space. Anyone else notice this? Any fix for this?

    Do you mean the bars, or the LTE, HSPA+, etc?

    I think this normal.

    Yeah that's just how it is unfortunately. Even when its just 4g and not LTE, there's still a blank space where the LTE letters would be. Its pretty annoying.

    My unlocked version on AT&T does not have these symbols when wifi is active. It only has the bars.

    It is the carrier caller ID app on your phone. If the phone is using the caller ID for function for incoming calls it causes the mobile data icon to stay since it needs mobile data to get this data.

    Disabled that feature and it will go away when on wifi.
