Everything here assumes you have done all Verizon system updates.
Since the most recent update, have you cleared your system cache? See
below for how to do that.
I noticed elsewhere in this thread a comment about 3rd party app
interference. That is also a possibility. Something may have changed
in Android to bring about a conflict.
Verizon loves to include "free" apps when they do an update. I go
through and remove most of those. If an app cannot be removed, it can
usually be deactivated.
One other possibility is System UI Tuner. If you have that activated,
it can cause problems. To remove it, go into Settings => System UI
Tuner and click the three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
Select the option that appears, "Remove from Settings".
Please note that if you have opted to "show Battery Percentage in status
bar", my experience has been that going into System UI Tuner will turn
that off - every time.
Hope this helps.
