    I think you are right, I have the At&t version and my "data manager" icon is what seems to flash. Which is more than likely the same as your "data usage" considering I don't have an app labeled "data usage". And for me this has happened since the m7, I don't pay it much attention though.

    I've noticed it say data manager too. If you take a screenshot at the right time with the notification tray open, it won't capture it, but sometimes the notification that flashes will pause for a bit longer and you can see it better.
    Its really weird why it does that.

    Might have to do with the separate radios as you can not use data and voice at the same time.

    Its definitely the Data Manager app. Turns out the Data Manager (at least on ATT) app also logs in how many texts are sent and received - hence why it runs in the background and the phantom notification icon appears briefly and dissapears. Bothers me quite a bit too.

    Just noticed this today! Couldn't figure out what it was, but after reading these posts I know it's ATT's data manager. At least it won't bother me as much now that I know what it is.

    Is there any way to turn the "notification" off. It'd just annoying seeing it pop up
