NFT: Help with Cellular Data Problem

Samiam : 4/3/2024 12:56 pm
For months I’ve been walking in the morning listening to Apple podcasts or Spotify music downloaded to my IPhone. The carrier is TMobile and speed is5G. Never had any problems. In the last few weeks, whatever I was listening to started pausing and it’s every few minutes. I listen to both podcasts and the music at home on Wifi with no issues. I called TMobile and they had me do a network reset and change the speed to LTE but no improvement.

There is a possible explanation but I don’t think it’s related. The company Hotwire is digging throughout the town running wires underground for internet for the town but it won’t be active until the end of the year. Plus, as best as I can tell , the pausing happens whether I’m near where Hotwire is digging or not. I would appreciate any advise on how to fix this. The podcast is what makes me able to walk every day and keep the weight down.

Test your upload and download speeds when things are running fine then test again when Spotify is glitching. If the speeds are the same than it could be the processor on your phone...time to delete some pictures or videos?

If the podcast or music is downloaded, your wireless connection shouldn’t make any difference. Problem is somewhere else.

I’d start by restarting your phone. Then updating and/or reinstalling affected apps.
I doubt this is your issue...

but I had a similar issue when driving. It turned out to be Waze in the background alerting about traffic etc even though I couldn't hear it. If that app is closed I have no issues. Seems like both apps were competing for the car's bluetooth or something. Maybe another app is messing with your headphones etc. Next time you go make sure all other apps are closed.
