It was last week that Nexus 6 phones around the world dropped away from the internet for seemingly no good reason whatsoever. It took many complaints, engineer tweaks and questions asked to find out what was going on with the devices on T-Mobile and many other international carriers.
A Nexus engineer pointed the data cut-out to activating the GPS antenna. Apparently, a lot of complaints were lodged while users were on the geolocation-intensive games Pokemon GO and Ingress. Darn Niantic.
The issue is said to be fixed and owners of poorly-functioning Nexus 6 devices should restart their phones. Job done.
