    Not fully true. If it's white instead of greyed out it's still using WiFi it just means it's active / on standby.

    Usually if it's active while on wifi it means there is an app holding it. Fabris do you have a caller ID app you use with AT&T? Usually caller ID apps need the mobile network to ID so it will keep it active (or white) but it shouldn't use data until a call comes in. Even then it would be a very minor amount to just ID the caller.
    No, I don't.

    Is the app enabled on your phone? Check for it. Verizon has one. Even if you aren't using it.

    I believe you are correct Sir. Either way, it's not something to worry about. If your phone is connected to WiFi it will be using WiFi for your streaming and downloading needs. No need to worry OP.

    My AT&T note 8 shows both icon on when I am on my strong and steady home wifi. Any reason? I am just concerned that his may affect negatively my 3g AT&T data plan. I do have wifi calling on, but this doesn't seem to affect anything since if I check it off both symbols are still on.
    Any suggestion? This drives me crazy. Thanks for any help you may be able to offer.
    I was having the same problem. I just went in and turned off developer options and 4g doesn't show up until I'm out of range of my WiFi!

    It really means nothing. You can ignore it. It happens all the time with newer phones for AT&T/Verizon customers. If you see the WiFi symbol it is using the WiFi network for access.

    I ran the Device Maintenance utility and it fixed the problem. It must have killed whatever app was causing it.

    If anyone figured out which app is responsible I'd be interested.

    Mine does this randomly, but it(4GLTE symbol) is never always on. It just pops up every now and then. I know it will if you recieve or send an MMS message but then goes away.
