What phone do you have?
What plan are you on?
Does your plan include data, or just talk & text?
Just Talk & text, but I occasionally add 1GB of data each month.
I purchased this phone in October 2018. Over the past several weeks I’ve downloaded a few 3rd party apps (Instagram, Garmin Connect, and Double-Twist). Not all at once, mind you, and each has worked fine. The phone was working fine prior to these additions and was working fine with each of these additions until just this last week. The first thing I noticed was the battery was draining more quickly and found that for some reason the Republic Anywhere app was using battery, but I don’t use the Anywhere app…I’ve never even set the account up, so I uninstalled the app to see if that would fix it. It’s better but still draining battery quicker than normal. Then I noticed the Instagram app wouldn’t play videos in my newsfeed or in stories and that problem wasn’t isolated to our WiFi…it does it on other WiFi and data too. I tried all of the troubleshooting tips for fixing that problem that I found online, but none of them worked. Today I noticed a new problem with the camera, when I take a picture it says it’s “processing” then the picture disappears and I can’t find it in any of the folders both internal and SD storage (I actually formatted the SD as internal storage), but if I take a picture in the message app to attach it to the message, it works fine, but it doesn’t save it in any of the folders…only in the message itself. And last but not least, the Gmail app won’t load attachments, and there’s are a few app updates (Facebook, Google Chrome, and Google) that refuse to download, while other updates have downloaded. I did go in and clear app cache and data on the Play Store app. These seem to be unrelated issues, but I’m hoping someone has some insight. I really don’t want to have to do a factory reset…I hate doing that.
