I have a Google Pixel and for the last 3 weeks I've been having issues with non responsive data when using 4G and sometimes 3G.
I orignally noticed the issue at st lukes mall where I had full 4G signal and wasnt able to send messages to my boss over viber, I restarted a few times and toggled airplane mode and despite seing full signal and the 4G icon up top i wasnt able to view any web pages or send messages on allo, hangouts, whatsapp or viber (an sms to my partner worked though)
I forced the phone into 3G mode and everything started working again, I figured there was an issue with 4G in that area.
I've had this issue pop up again at home at sylvia park and again in botany its at a point where i just leave the phone in 3G mode - I had thought it was the phone itself (despite it working perfectly for months up untill now) so I popped my sim into my partners old S6 while i rolled my Pixel back to a previous software version and had the exact same issues suggesting its the sim or the network (god forbid its the vodafone network though right)
Is there any chance this is a side effect of me moving off a 'high teir' plan to a open term one and being less prioritised?
I'm not sure where to go from here - any suggestions?
