I've been getting the same error on my LG G3 every time I reboot my phone.  I have no idea what that service is though.  Count me in as someone else looking for this answer.

I am getting the same message.  I am not even sure what it is or how to fix it.

I don't have the answer, but I found that this issue just began for me on or around August 12th when I updated the Google+ app via the Google Play Store. I saw that some other users were having a similar issue, so I uninstalled the Google+ update and the error went away. I updated the app again, and the error returned. I'd like to know what this service is responsible for in the first place.

I, too, am getting this annoying message every time I boot up my phone (Galaxy S3). I have noticed also that my phone gets Hot to the touch quickly and the battery drains fast. I hope verizon puts in a fix to this quickly as I have not found anything anywhere to fix it on my own.

I am getting the same message "VZWAVS Service has stopped" every time I turn on the Galaxy S5.  Yes, like everyone else, it just started recently.  I know that AVS stands for Address Verification System, VZ stands for Verizon.  What the W stands for I have no idea.  And, I have no idea whether I need VZWAVS for anything.   So far, the error message is simply annoying; I can't see that it affects anything operationally.

VZW is VeriZon Wireless.

You nailed it, TK216 .  I was getting this error when rebooting the phone, which I don't do that often.  Uninstalled the G+ updates, error did not appear on reboot.  I have auto updates set up, and once the phone connected to my wifi, it downloaded the G+ update, and I didn't even need to restart - the "Unfortunately, VZWAVSService has stopped" error popped up as soon as the install was finished..

I'm leaving the update in place for G+, for now, since I rarely reboot the phone, and so far, it doesn't seem to affect anything else.  If other things start getting weird, further investigation may be warranted.

How come lots of people including myself has this error message "

Unfortunately vzwavsservice has stopped" and not a single Verizon Wireless customer service make the initiative to  answer our question or concern? Actually this is my first time posting my post in here. How does it work? Does VZ Customer Service representative read our questions at all or do we have to call them? My phone is even worst, after that message kept popping up, now my fone kept rebooting every 5 second. I can't even finish my text before it shut down? Anyone has the same problem? My battery drained fast from 37% down to 22% after 1/2hrs after it kept on rebooting.

The fix is to remove the Google + app and don’t allow auto updates or it will just re-install it.
