    Hey there, is anyone having an issue with the LOCATION SERVICES icon continuing to stay on when it's not being in use...I already forced close each application through the multitasking feature. It still stayed on. Obviously I turned off location services through settings and thats the only way the icon came off. But when I need to use an app that requires it I have to go back to settings. I think it might be a bug, but I don't know. Also I have restored my phone n the issue continues. I know location services runs in the background, but I forced close each app n the icon remains...help anyone??...

    This. There was a patch released last night. Install it and launch the app and it should fix it.

    No I don't have the weather.com app. I just have the standard one that comes with it & the weather channel app.

    The Weather Channel App was the one I was referring to. If the update didn't fix it try uninstalling it and reinstalling it entirely. If that doesn't work just restrict its Location service use.
