    Angry LG G2 "Searching for GPS"

    I've had an LG G2 with AT&T for about 2 months now. I noticed that up on the notification bar it has a little symbol and when I pull down the bar, it says "Searching for GPS". When I press it, it takes me to the GPS settings, where it says that GPS is on (which I never manually turn it on). I switch it off, and in a couple minutes, it says "Searching for GPS" again. Anyone having this problem? If so, have you found a fix?

    Search for CIQ (Carrier IQ) AT&T loads on the phone. I think that is the issue

    Go to settings >apps>running>Android System. There u can turn the carrier IQ off. If you reboot the phone you will have to do it again. It starts back after a reboot.

    I took it to BestBuy and they fixed it for me. It was a really simple task. Just in case you guys need help with it:
    Settings-> General-> Apps-> All-> Menu Button-> Reset app Preferences
