  1. Pixel 6 won’t connect to the internet. After days of contacting google Fi service and doing everything, they said to do to fix the problem it still won’t connect. They still won’t replace the phone, their solution is to factory reset the phone and install the old operating system. After factory reset the phone will not connect to the internet to download anything. Service says they will review my case and let me know if the phone needs to be replaced. It’s been two days and they still won’t replace the phone. If you want to take a chance that you might buy a phone that can’t use the internet, go ahead and buy a Pixel 6 pro.
