***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Google Pixel XL (version 1)

I purchased a new google pixel XL and its the worst thing I could have done.  My GIG usage is off the charts and I do nothing

with the phone. I speak, text, occasional google search and may take a photo once in a while. I use more gig with my phone than

my jet pack, and my jet pack runs my entire household.  Very upset and confused?  Any suggestions?
