Mwarzyn, we always want you to have the My Verizon access at your fingertips. Let's work to get to the bottom of this. Do you recall adding anything new to the phone recently? Does this happen when connected to Wi-Fi or cellular data? When going to the Settings, General, Software Update, is your device up to date?
