    Starting sometime yesterday I began to see a constant transfer on wifi, anyone seeing this?
    Edit: I should add that I changed nothing.

    No. That is the strange thing, even with sync off it still shows activity. I'm wondering if it is really transferring data or just a false signal from a faulty radio.

    Edit: and only on wifi. Not doing it on 4G.

    I have now gone as far as 2 factory reboots and telling the phone not to sync after reboot and once connected to wifi "apparent" transfer of data is nonstop. I may try to root at this point just to see.

    Get Juice Defender App. It stops data when I'm on wifi and when the phone is asleep.

    Thanks, I may try that. Although I don't think that is going to tell me what the underlying problem is.

    This is getting so annoying. I have literally uninstalled or disabled everything that I can and it still shows activity on the wifi connection. Again, I don't know if it's actually activity or something wonky with the hardware itself.....

    Have you checked the apps settings and seen whats running? Also disable any verizon app. I already have Google to sync my contacts and the vzw apps don't work or useless when I can just use the browser.
