Fix Nexus 6 Data on TMobile

I have the Google Nexus 6 phone on the TMobile network.


Uninstall Google Connection Services Updates
+ Disable Location Services
+ Reboot
= Working #Nexus6 Data

This week, the data has dropped out. I thought, being in rural Pennsylvania, it was a random tower issue. After three days I Googled "Nexus 6 data" and was presented with many articles.

I tweeted to TMobile CEO John Legend about the issue, also tagging the Google Nexus team.

The TMobile team wanted to help and assured me people were working on it.

I also heard from a member of the Nexus team, who suggested:

@Sherwin4Nexus wrote:
@herbriede sorry to hear about that. Try this Settings -> Apps -> tap three dots in upper right, Show System, scroll down to Google (1/2)
@herbriede Connectivity Services, tap three dots in upper right, Uninstall Updates. and reboot.
#gHelp (2/2)

I did this and after reboot the data worked for a couple minutes, longer than it had for over a day.

I had tweeted thanks, but had to then follow up with bad news.

I then found a link on Android authority to disable location services:

In comments on Android Authority: disable location services+reboot.
#Nexus6 Now working #ghelp

After another reboot, my data has been going strong since, but now no GPS.

DynaWeather Channel available for Amazon Fire TV!

After launching DynaWeather in the Google Play Store for Android devices (phones, tablets, etc.) last year, the DynaWeather Channel was launched in the Amazon Appstore for the Fire TV.

This program was used as the capstone project for my Bachelor's of Science in Informaiton Technology from Western Governors University.

It is different from the Google Play version in that the interface is not a tabbed collection of content, but a continuously scrolling feed of weather data that automatically refreshes.

This format is potentially expanded to other Smart TV platforms that use Android or HTML apps, as the feed is HTML5-based.
