    So this morning I have noticed that the location services icon (that little arrow pointing to the NE next to my battery %) is on all the time. I've gone into the quick launch and closed every program and I've even toggled location settings on/off but it is still on. Rebooted too and it is still there. Any ideas? Just don't want something running in the background that I am not aware of that is going to drain my battery all of a sudden. Weird.

    OK, figured it out. It is the new update from Weather Channel. Annoying. I just turned location services off. Wonder what the change was that is causing this. Anyone know about this?

    That is annoying, but if you'd like to keep the app you can just turn off its ability to use Location Services. Settings>Location Services>(find app name; toggle to Off)

    One would assume they'd put an update out pretty soon if they know about this.

    It's TWC channel app, there is a note on the latest update for that app from TWC saying they are aware of the issue and working to fix ASAP.

    Yes, for now you can just turn off location services for TWC.

    I just updated mine the other day. Said it was supposed to fix that problem. However before I didn't have that issue and now I do. Go figure!

    I had this happen when I was jailbroken on 4.2.8. I had to restore, but mucked up. Stuck on 4.2.10... "yay"

    Note: I'm on Verizon Wireless.

    I noticed mine was on all the time for the past couple of days. Didn't have the time to investigate it so thanks for saving me the trouble :-)
