Having trouble keeping your mobile data connection on your Nexus 6? You're not alone
If you’re the owner of a Nexus 6 and happen to be a subscriber to either T-Mobile’s or Sprint’s network, you might want to take note of a problem that’s been happening to quite a few owners of the handset. Multiple users around the web have been experiencing complete mobile data connection failure over the past week or so, with no viable explanation for the problems.
Most users explain that the problem happens sporadically throughout the day, and that their phones will randomly show an exclamation point over the signal icon, no matter if they have full bars or not. When that exclamation point shows up, the phone’s data connection is completely gone, and the Nexus 6 then requires a soft reset to work again. Unfortunately most folks are saying that a soft reset only fixes the problem for a few minutes.
The majority of these users report that the problem persists no matter if they’re rooted or non-rooted, or if their phones are running Android 5.0 or 5.1. Most complaints over on Reddit and XDA are from T-Mobile and Sprint customers, though there are also a few Verizon users reporting issues.
