    Hey everyone, I picked up a used S4 off a guy from Craigslist today and got it activated at a local Verizon store today. The phone is working fine all around, but one HUGE annoying issue..

    The DEMO screen or the "features video" called VZW demo on verizon version phone keeps popping up rather than the screen turning off. I can't get the screen to turn off for more than 1 minute and this screen pops back up, it's as if it's stuck in the video loop mode you would see at the store..

    Please help

    I found a disable.button in All apps section and it turns it off for a little longer but still comes back on. Also the Verizon demo mode I try to uninstall and it comes right back 30 seconds later.

    I need to post a screen shot?

    Just added them to the top.. I feel like I did get a demo, but heck I would have thought it wouldn't work as a demo, or other issues trying to activate it. Everything works on the phone. Might just have to root it and delete it permanently.
