    Default Wi-Fi AND 4G Icon Showing at Same Time?

    So I'm on Wi-Fi, full signal, and my phone is showing I'm on 4G as well. I just updated to KitKat yesterday. Possible KitKat bug?

    I have heard nothing of the sort in regards to KitKat or period for that matter.

    I have seen it many times. At least 20 or more. You are not alone.

    I called Verizon and even their tech support team had no idea how to approach my problem. I was hoping a forum member had this experience and could help. I rely more on you guys more than i do Verizon.

    Do you think it's eating our data?

    My wifi and 4G icon are both showing, too. The 4G icon is grayed out when wifi is operational.

    Same here. Not sure if it's a bug, however, when the 4G icon is grayed out it's off and not consuming data.

    It's the same with me. I think this is the way it was designed to work.

    Best thing after a new update is a factory reset, makes the phone like new. Kit Kat is smoking on mine.

    If I factory reset, I'll lose the info on a few apps that don't have accounts nor will they back up. A factory reset be a last resort.

    I am having same issue. Only the arrows for the wifi, indicating upload and download are active, although the 4G icon is lit also. There is no activity showing for the 4g.. It was posted on KitKat forum that the Galaxy4 uses the wifi by default and does not go over to the 4g. I hope so till a fix can be found. This happened with the KitKat update. Also, took the phone to a Verizon store yesterday and they had no clue.

    No. It's using your wifi.. Hence why it's grayed out.

    A factory reset won't help. It used to be a caller ID app that caused it.. Now it seems standard. See this thread on the S5 as an example. http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho....php?p=3592952

    Mine is also doing the same thing after the Kit Kat update. I'm showing full wifi signal, and my 4G icon is also lit. Additionally my phone's wifi seems to have throttled itself and is allowing no more than 2.5 Mbps down, according to speedtest.net (all of my other wireless devices fly on my home's wifi). This also happened post-Kit Kat update. I've started leaving the wifi off on the phone because 4G is much faster.

    Strange. I haven't been throttled via Wi-Fi but was when I had unlimited data,

    Just tested mine and got about 21Mbps download and the American upload on my Fios.

    I don't think the data is being throttled at the source, I think my phone is throttling it. Every other wireless device in my house, including my wife's Note 10.1 is downloading at at least 25-30 Mbps, while my phone only goes at 2-3 Mbps. It didn't do this before the Kit Kat upgrade.

    Yep, all of the other devices in my house are fine. See my response above to Murph5150. I did play around with the channel selection on my router and that helped.

    Speaking of bugs... do any of you know what the hell a bug report means? It keeps coming up in my notification bar that a bug report has logged. Not sure if I should factory reset my phone again and start from scratch. If someone knows anything about this.. Please help!!!

    Something is holding the 4G open. At the moment, my icon is *not* greyed out, full bars with activity on Wi-Fi, and I still see an occasional 4G down arrow light up. Rebooting the phone starts with 4G, connects to Wi-Fi and now the 4G icon *is* greyed out.
