Problem with Location Services in Flight Mode

Hi!

 

Several times before it happened, that the Location Services symbol appeared in the status bar during Flight Mode and only disappeared several minutes after leaving Flight Mode. Up til now this never posed a problem as I usually plug in my Z10 over night.

Yesterday before going to bed I had 30% left and thought, that this would be sufficient to survive the night and that i'll plug it in in the office. Alas, I was woken up at arround 6am by my phone turning itself off.

 

When I looked at the Device Manager i found something quiet startling: During the whole time Flight Mode was active (approx. 23:00 - 0600), Location Services where active as well, draining the remaining 30% of battery. (See pictures)

My Device is a Z10STL100-3, OS is 10.2.1.3175.

No App was running nor was an Active Frame open.

 

Does anyone have a clue, why this happened or what caused this? Anyone with similar experiences?

And more important: how can i fix this?

 

Kind regards,

Uwe

I had the same experience on my Z30. Really annoying. Have no idea how to fix it. The OS version is the same.

Re: Problem with Location Services in Flight Mode

I saw a resemblance to a user in the Spanish forum mistake is perhaps as happens on the foursquare application was always working and location feature enabled.

Re: Problem with Location Services in Flight Mode

hi,

 

I also noticed that locations services drain my battery in a flight mode even when no apps is running. it can consume all of the power left in the battery. 

 

my guess is that something tries to get location info repeatedly and not recognizing that the device is actually off line.
