I have a Pixel 5G, just got it in Oct. 2020. I just recently communicated with an expert member re phone suddenly using a lot of data. He solved the fact that Google Mail was using a lot of data. Now, it’s showing Google is using quite a bit of data. I have consciously not used the internet away from WiFi. I can’t remember why, but he suggested I install updates.Then I lostVM. I was advised to uninstall updates. Got VM back. I did all that at home, supposedly on WiFi…my data use shows38.97 on “Removed application(s)…how did that happen?!!
Since I bought this Pixel 5a, I’ve lost my mic, that was a doozy to get back! I’ve lost very important contacts, I don’t really know all the contacts that were deleted, I’m finding out as I need them.
I’ve lost VM again, I tried to follow instructions (press 1) but that went nowhere, I have a VM (maybe from a lost contact) in there somewhere. My “other” phone # was showing up when I called someone, they did not always answer…I did get this resolved.
I don’t feel that on a phone this new, I should be experiencing all these problems.
I know this is a lot of different areas. I am frustrated. I neither have the time, patience or training/knowledge to constantly combat the maintenance this new phone requires.
You may or may not be able to address/resolve all or all of these, it at least I got to rant.
Summary: Too much data being used.
