    Hi all!
    I noticed tonight that both WiFi was on as well as 4G was running at the same time. recall this happening with an older Galaxy phone I had and it was some app that wouldn't switch to WiFi. I can't remember what it was, as it didn't happen with my note 3 and I don't think it happened with my Note 2. Has anyone else seen this, and how do you stop it? It didn't do this when I first got this phone, but I noticed it tonight.

    Thanks!

    If you have an app that requires your mobile network for its function, like some caller ID apps, MMS, some carrier specific apps or you have download booster turned on - these are some examples of when this would happen.

    Oh I realize that. I was just wondering if anyone else had found what app(s) would do that? I can't think of anything that would cause it. I thought maybe that new Caller ID app that VZW installed on here, so I went and turned it off. No dice. It's still running both Wifi and 4G. I have PLENTY of data, so I shouldn't be concerned, but I just dont' like the idea of my 4G data being used when I'm on Wifi, ya know!

    I've noticed that happening too. I have the download booster off and disabled the VZW caller ID app. I can't figure out what is causing this either.

    Ok, I just partially solved it. It IS the Name Caller ID app that came preinstalled. I had turned it off, but apparently the stupid thing will start if I reboot the phone. That's yet another issue with those preinstalled apps. If we could get rid of what we don't want, that'd be great!

    Any ideas on dumping preinstalled apps?

    Sometimes maps use mobile data together with wifi not to use data but to fast locate your position when gps signal is to weak.

    Settings, applications. Find the app, and click disable or words to that effect

    Im doing the same thing but I'm not having that issue. You should try to see if your WiFi connection is connecting properly because it could be switching on and off.

    Thanks, guys! Since I turned off that Caller ID app, it's not doing it any more. I do recall that the last time I had that issue with a new phone, I think it was the N2, it was the preloaded Caller ID app. Turned it off and everything was good again!

    Yeah, when I first got my galaxy a few months back, I was getting 4G & Wifi running at the same time. Found out it was because of the stupid Caller ID bloat ware app that Verizon puts on their phones. I just went into settings and disabled it. Unfortunately there's no way you can just delete it, unless you root and I believe that Verizon enabled Knox; so depending on the device and the android version you have, you may not be able to root.
