    Read the device subforum name. This is for 6/6T, not 8 Series.

    But this is tied in directly to his device as well; Seems related. My 7T Pro McLaren is doing the same thing.

    This seems to be 100% neglect on OnePlus' part. Especially given the 8 that just came out is dropping connections too!

    We all just want OnePlus to address the multi-device issue so that we can all have working phones!

    Clearly all related to the OxygenOS build. Especially since the 8 that just came out is doing it too!

    My OP6 has not been dropping ANY connections. Maybe you have MAC filtering on?

    I do not. What about the entire internet? Across multiple OnePlus devices.....do they all have Mac Filtering on too?

    MAC filtering is done on the router and is used to limit devices that can connect to said router. Android 10, by design, defaults to "randomized MAC addresses" and MAC filtering can be the cause of this.

    This is also happening on OP7 Pro. Was working perfectly for the first two months I had it. Updated it last week and within minutes it started randomly disconnecting. Note this is the TMobile version with 10.0.4.

    As luck would have it I have a 2nd OP7 Pro arriving in the mail today for my wife. Any bet it will experience the same problem?

    What a stupid recommendation to reset your phone. Can you imagine everytime something in your computer didn't work and they said to reinstall windows? Terrible solution to tell people to do full wipes.

    Oh I have the same problem too btw

    Computer is a different more open system. Whereas android is not as open, impossible to change hardware drivers on older devices. Windows, Linux, OSX are more compartmentalised so cannot be compared.

    Sometimes a reset in Android can rectify the issue, not always, but sometimes when all else fails. Try searching this forum for solutions as there are many threads that discuss the same issue.

    You might get lucky.

    If you're experiencing intermittent mobile data loss, meaning the cell bars are gone and you have no texting, calls, or internet ability other then wifi and if you bought the phone directly from Oneplus, you need to make sure that the sim card is 1. a VOLTE and 2. that the CDMA-LESS (assists in network provisioning) is activated by the carrier. Reach out to the carrier and this will fix it. Even if your cellphone started off working and weeks or a month later you begin to experience this issue, call the carrier and make sure the 1. and 2. are both true.

    Same on OnePlus 6T (I have google wifi mesh routers at home), but I found a solution in one of the Samsung forums.
    Go into Settings -> Location -> Turn off Google Location Accuracy.
    Absurd. It works. (tested on two 6T devices)
