    Default Strange mobile network glitch?

    I'miss not sure if this is a glitch or not. I "think" my signal is fine. WiFi always shows
    on, even if I'm not home. I always have a wifi turned on though, just don't always have a signal obviously. My mobile network signal has gaps in it where I would assume it always be green or tan or whatever. My phone seems fine, unless of course ppl are calling me and I'm not realizing it. Any ideas. Here is a pic.

    Maybe a verizon thing, that your wifi symbol always shows? Odd. Maybe it's there to show you that it's within range or a network? Once I am away from Wifi (with it on all the time), it goes away but I do get notification that I am within range of a wifi network. Maybe another VZ user can chime in.

    Yeah, it's like if I have wifi toggled to on, it's going to show up whether I'm actually connected or not. What I'm more curios/concerned about is the random apparent blank spaces in the mobile connectivity - even though my phone appears to be performing fine...I think.

    Mine does the same exact thing.

    I am on T-mobile. So far I havent seen any effects.

    You?

    You're not alone. I have the same thing on my phone but have no idea what it means or why it happens. (both the wifi issue and the network gaps)

    I still have the issue. I didn't think it was anything more than a glitch, but I may be wrong unfortunately. The other day, I'm sitting in my office, phone on my desk, and I get a random voicemail. Signal should have been fine. IDK., maybe I had no signal when the person called, then it came back on and I got the voice mail. Kind of disheartening.

    *edit - I'm on Verizon. My Dad has an S5 too and his seems to do it as well.

    I went to a Verizon store, and the employee had no idea what I was talking about, however had an S5. I asked to see his phone - his had the gaps in the bar as well.

    THis is interesting.

    So both Verizon and T-mobile phones confirmed have these gaps.

    Any others with different carriers have this also?

    Today mine has been the worst yet. Almost no bar at all today

    I am still able to receive and make calls fine though.

    Has to be something with the software.

    I have had a similar problem receiving calls when connected to a wifi. Had to turn 4g off. Still not got a fix for this
