    Default 4G still being used on wifi?

    Since my update to KK I noticed that the 3G/4G signal grays out while wifi is on but while I was on Jellybean the indicator would completely go away. Does this mean my data is still being used? I ran across this on JB after I had signed up for the Verizon caller ID thing I disabled that as soon as I updated to KK. I looked around in the icon glossary and did a small search but didnt have any luck.

    Noticed the same thing after my update. Unless you see the download/upload arrows lit up, you should be on wifi. Now why can't we use wifi for MMS is my question?

    MMS still has to go through a carrier network as it's still a text message of sorts so it needs that carrier network

    I noticed the grayed out 3g/4g indicator while wi-fi is turned on. It doesn't stay grayed out when you turn off wi-fi. On my phone the lettering becomes bold face when I turn off wi-fi.
