Support VZWAVSService stops - should I care?

In the past few days, when I boot my S3, a message appears that says, "Unfortunately, VZWAVSService has stopped."

I don't even know what VZWAVSService is - I can only guess that it is something Verizon-related - so I don't whether I should care that it stops. But I would like to stop that message appearing.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am getting the same message on my S5. Does this mean cache is full or something? How do we clear this message and keep it from happening again?

I get the same thing when I restart my S3. Anyone know why?

Reading on the verzion wireless forums and a couple posters said it was related to the google + update recently and they uninstallled the update and or google+ app and it resolved the issue

This is a problem. I recently had a stroke so it is really a problem for me. Can't remember very well and am having difficulty concentrating on things.

This issue is due to a recent software update on samsung and various other android devices. the easiest way i have been able to fix this is by going into
settings/apps (or applications)/all
find the vzwavsservice in there and turn it off. So far that has fixed it for my customer, im sure there will be another update pushed out to fix this issue soon.

Welcome to the forum. Sorry bout the stroke; I'm 86 and I know sh*t happens. Stay tuned and some of it will come back (hopefully). Hang tight!

Post-stroke time sucks. You can lose track of what you are doing while you are doing it.

Getting back to the original question of WZWAVSService anoying notification. I resolved the problem by uninstalling the Google+. It serves no purpose that I can see anyway. Thanks to everyone for their input.
