Google Nexus 6 owners report network connectivity issues

According to a report from AndroidPolice, some Google Nexus 6 owners are experiencing network connectivity issues. The problem affects units of the said smartphone running various Android versions and customers of various network operators across the globe.


According to the report, “a considerable number of users are reporting a total failure of their phone’s mobile data connection,” with the “3G or LTE connection fails, showing a “!” logo on top of the signal bar.” This happens whether or not you are connected to the nearest tower or a Wi-Fi connection. Owners are saying that rebooting the smartphone temporarily fixes the issue, but this fix is only good for a few minutes, meaning the issue comes back soon after the reboot. Threads in XDA and Reddit reveal that the problem started less than a week ago.

So who are affected by the network connection issue? According to the report customers on US network operators T-Mobil, Sprint, and Verizon are affected. One XDA forum member from the UK reports experiencing the issue as well. It doesn’t matter whether your Nexus 6 is running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or Android 5.1 (Lollipop).

Sadly, at the time of writing, no fix to the issue has been rolled out.
