Pixel 6 series owners say March update didn’t fix their connectivity issues
For example, one Reddit follower wrote, “My P6P (unlocked on Verizon) still disconnects from the network even after the March update. Because the wifi is still working, I might not notice it for hours. Of course this is a really serious issue as I am missing calls and texts. Anyone else still having this issue? I am struggling to find anything recent. Y does it have any real fixes?”
Pixel 6 models manufactured in September 2021 would be more likely to have connectivity issues
And here’s another complaint, also from someone who owns the Pixel 6 Pro. “I had the exact same problem for a while. I was really hoping the March security update would fix it, but nothing has changed. If so, I feel like that the situation has gotten worse. Add to that that the phone heats up more often now. Really annoyed by this I can’t get a phone that works properly. It’s their premium phone. What a joke.
Grab the Google Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro
Some of those who see no improvement after the update have either considered selling or sold their Pixel 6 series handset and bought one of the Samsung Galaxy S22 models, usually the Galaxy S22+ or the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Lately some owners have had the same issues as this Pixel 6 Pro owner who wrote “If you read some of the detailed posts you can see that when the Pixel 6 Pro is in the degraded state it is still able to communicate with the cellular network for data, so you could be actively using the device to browse the web, use apps, and receive notifications, but be unaware that voice calls and texts are “out of order.”
Alternate pixels seem to work fine
And yet, there are those who continue to own a Pixel 6 series unit without a problem. According to some interesting posts from redditors circling the platform, there is a theory that Pixel 6 series phones with a serial number starting with the digits “19” (indicating that the phone was manufactured in September 2021) are more likely to have connectivity issues. You can find this information on your Pixel 6 series device by going to Settings > About the phone > Model and you will see the serial number of your phone.
- Store Bought Faulty P6Pro, Fingerprint Sensor Won’t Turn On
- 1st RMA microphone did not work (Refurbished phone sent)
- 2nd RMA camera module froze phone
- 3rd RMA (current). Lost connection every 20-30 minutes.
Still, there are still plenty of Pixel 6 series users who have no issues to report and the vast majority of them say they love their phone. And that also applies to yours truly. If you own a Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro, how was your experience with the phone? Did you notice any improvement after the March update, did things get better or worse?
