In the last two weeks, my Moto X randomly drops and reconnects to WiFi. Sometimes I have to manually connect. It happens at the coffee shop, grocery store and at home. As I write this, I am seated approximately 9 feet from a router and the connection icon in the top left will turn off for a time and then reconnect. I have 4 routers in my home so I am never further than 25 feet from a router at any time I am home. I also notice that when I arrive at a WiFi spot, the phone sometimes takes up to 5 minutes to automatically switch from cell to WiFi. It is quite irritating. I have done a system cache clear a couple of time in the last two weeks. I uninstalled every unused app on the phone.
I am on the Republic Refund plan and I noticed this last bill by cell usage went up considerably. This is odd because my time away from WiFi spots has actually decreased. I am retired and I travel from home very, very little.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
I’m sure someone is going to suggest a new phone which would require a new plan but I am on a fixed income (Social Security) and I can’t afford a new phone and the new plan would cost me almost double what the Refund plan does.
