    I updated my Samsung Galaxy S5 to Lollipop 5.0, and now when my screen is locked, the Verizon Wireless logo is in the upper left corner. I didn't mind it until I realized that I can no longer view any notification icons for texts, email, missed calls, etc. when my phone is locked. It's annoying to have to unlock my phone just to see if I have any notifications. Anyone else have this issue & know how to move the logo somewhere else on the locked screen?Verizon logo covers notification icons on Lollipop 5.0 locked screen-screenshot_2015-02-06.jpg

    Ditto. It's annoying, and I am not sure how to get rid either.

    I think Verizon maybe thinks it's extraneous, because if you set up notifications on the lockscreen, you have them there in front of your face, rather than tiny icons on the notification bar... I thought it was weird as well, and that's the only reason I can think of...

    i'm just dissatisfied with the Lollipop update in general: 1Weather notification never was on my lockscreen on kitkat, just on my notification bar and dropdown menu but now it seams that every notification has to appear on your lockscreen, so now i have a constant 1weather notification which causes my lockscreen clock to shrink. and the stock samsung music app sucks too. on kitkat you could fast forward, rewind or drag the slider on a song and it was large on the lockscreen, now you can only do previous song/next/pause all on a smasll notification tab

    For the lock screen notification, it is just the way lollipop do. To make notification appear in your lockscreen, go to sound and notification -> while locked -> show all content. All notification will go to your lock screen like in IOS.

    I agree. I would like to go back to kitkat. I get sent email notifications in my status bar and have not found a setting to shut that off. Also light manager does not this either.

    If you're using the stock email app you can turn off notifications for each account.
    Now the next question is how do we turn off the "heads up" notifications

    FYI - if anyone is wondering how to turn them on (notifications on the lock screen)

    Settings --> Sound and Notification --> scroll down to While locked, and select non, show all content, or hide sensitive content (or something like that). Those opptions are to show no notification, show all content (i.e. first couple lines of emails and texts and news), or show only content flagged as not sensitive by the app.

    Agree that VZ probably put the logo there because notifications in the upper left of the lock screen are no longer needed since lollipop shifted them to the middle.

    This is the one thing I dislike about Lollipop. If I wanted iOS type notifications on my lock screen, I'd get a freaking iPhone. So here's my concern - Yes, I can can go in the Sound systems and turn them all Off on the lock screen, but then I get nothing at all! Not even the icons that used to appear in the status bar. I used to be able to turn on my screen and at least quickly see if I had an email, text, missed phone call or anything else of interest just by looking at the status bar. Since my phone is required to have a pin unlock code (work device), I now have to completely unlock my phone just to see if there is something I need to be aware of.
    So the only way around that now is to deal with the clutter in the middle of my lock screen. But if I have multiple notifications (more than 3), the only way to see them all is to swipe to dismiss some of them to make room, which then also dismisses them in the notification panel when the phone is unlocked. Good luck remembering to check that later if you are too busy at the moment - I have already forgotten some notifications that I swiped to dismiss just so I could see all the notifications on the lock screen. So once again to view what all of the notifications are, I still have to fully unlock my device using my pin so I can swipe down on the notification panel.
    So how do I limit the amount of notifications on the lock screen to help alleviate this issue? Well I could go into the app setting and turn off notifications per app, but that doesn't impact just the lock screen. That disables all notifications for that app, which means I then won't even see it in the notification panel at all.
    In my opinion, we have stepped back in time to when I had an early iPhone and I had to unlock the device every time just to see if someone had sent me something..... But still much worse off on lock screen notifications than the iPhone, which handles them much better. And that is something I thought I would never say... So disappointed with this part of Lollipop, but I love other aspects of it. I hope they work to improve this, as it's half-baked right now. Give me more flexibility to be able to turn off the lock screen notifications, but still see the icons in the panel at the top.

    Thank you for the knowledge, but that is just dumb.

    If I walk away from my phone, I don't want someone to be able to see and partially read what I am receiving. Hence, why we prefer it just showing us the symbol in the status bar.

    Dumb move on their part. I'm actually very dissatisfied with this update.

    Well said. You have captured my complete experience and concerns with 5.0. It frustrates me that people who try to answer this "real" concern do so by simply instructing you how to accept what the update forces on you (no notifications or clunky notifications). I'm not sure the issue with the (Verizon) overlay in the status bar (in lieu of notifications) is limited to Verizon or if other carriers do the same. Either way, you cannot convince me that the Lollipop update makes notifications better when all the issues you cited exist. I am hopeful that one of the immediate "fixes" will be to correct the notification screw up and permit notifications to sit in the status bar as they did prior to the update.

    T Mobile just had the update and mine does the same. Now it just says TMoible in the upper left hand corner. I was hoping for a fix. I tried all and I do not like that. I don't want to wake up my phone and have those on there. So I took it off.

    I don't like this part either. Sometimes I just need to see if I have a notification from a private account and I don't have time or want to wake my phone.

    Lollipop showing notification content on a locked screen is definitely not doable.. it contradicts the purpose of having a locked phone. 4.4 got it right.

    Bring back icons indicating a notice.

    Just upgraded last night to Lollipop using (T-Mobile)... No LED notifications... 'T-Mobile' took that place... I have read every post online and spent the better half of today messing with my phone to NO AVAIL! When Location is on, there's a box that constantly pops up on my lock screen that reads: Searching for GPS. I kind of like the new design and layout, but the LED notifications not lighting up anymore sucks! I did notice when I was driving and charging my phone, the blue LED notification light blinked when I received a new message, but when I unplugged my phone, no more notifications. This would be a fun update if they could get a fix for this.

    I feel the same way. I would have like to have a choice which notification I want to see on my locked screen and and if I block other. That it doesn't get blocked up also on the notification panel.

    I still have the LED light up, just not the notification panel at the top. Two different things. Of course I rarely use the LED light notification because I get junk e-mail, currently it's flashing a blue light (not being charged). But having not having the notification on the lock screen is unacceptable IMHO

    I realize that notifications cam be turned on and off and hog my lock screen, but I want the small notification up in the left hand corner just so I can tell if I have an email, voicemail, Facebook update, etc. I don't need a big huge list. I also know who my provider is. I now look to the notification bar and go "Oh, I still have Verizon. Glad they notify me every single time I look at my lock screen so I know who my carrier is."

    I completely agree. Lollipop just forced its way down to my phone one night, and I've spent a LOT of time Googling how to put stuff back. I don't want to be reminded all the time that my carrier is Sprint. I really didn't want anyone to be able to see my notifications, regardless if its a preview. I can't stand the new color schemes for open windows (especially Messaging, gah!). I hate the white backgrounds, and didn't need any help adding to my screen usage of my battery. And yes, if I had wanted an iPhone I would have bought one. Fix bugs, add CUSTOMIZABLE new content,...this really needs to go. I was completely happy with my Note4 until now.
