    this happened on my S5 and i was very happy when 4G was grayed out when wifi was on, on the new S7.

    After the recent update i notice both are on all the time now and i feel its effecting battery life.

    Thoughts?? What does yours look like? Could it be anything else? Imhave dl'ed any new apps

    Uh, you mean that the icon is lit brighter? You mean you think THAT'S using extra power? A brighter icon? Or am I missing your point?

    You either have Download Booster enabled, or, there's a setting in Developer Options that keeps data on at all times, even when you're using WI-FI.
    Disable one or the other to determine the culprit.....

    I'm on T-Mobile,but the following should be the same across all makes/models:
    Do you,or,have you ever enabled Developer Options?
    If so,you may see something like this enabled:

    If not,perhaps VZW has some other setting for such tucked away in their bloatware............

    Hi I just got samsung s7 and I noticed it is doing the same,both wifi and 4g on together, it has got to be something to do with a app running in the back ground .
    I have just downloaded a app called JUST CLEAN when I scan and clear junk from my apps it gets rid of the 4g and just leaves wifi .
    Only just done it so don't no how long it will last , prob till you click on the effending app .

    I'm guessing you're the app developer:
    No one in their right mind would or should install this malicious CRAPWARE,it asks for way too many permissions & I suspect is spyware.......

    We definitely appreciate the sentiment,especially if you are not the developer. :) :thumbsupdroid:
    With that said:
    It's not just crapware,most anything asking for a laundry list of permissions is malware/spyware,plain & simple.
    Very few legitimate apps ask for &/or need such to perform whatever it is the apps main function/purpose is.

    I'm willing to bet typical Android troubleshooting techniques would solve this problem without this app.

    My best advice would be to uninstall Just Crap immediately......
