    Ok so my S5 on verizon wireless updated to 5.0. On the lock screeen in the notification bar it now says "Verizon Wireless" on the lock screen.

    On the previous android version in that spot it owuld show the following icons, text message, voicemail, missed calls, whatsapp notificaiton etc. all on the notification bar on the lock screen.

    On the new update 5.0 its just says "verizon wireless" in that spot. you can not see what notifications you have until you unlock the screen.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to get rid of "verizon wireless" and get my notifications back?

    Also on a side note, the new update sucks. Im not happy with it lol.

    MANY people agree with that sentiment.

    As far as the question, if you root the phone and use Xposed Installer, there are a few modules that allow you to change what shows in the notification bar. Wanam Xposed may do some of what you want.

    I am having the same problem with a Sprint S5. Only mine says "Sprint" instead of the app icons.
