HOW TO STOP YOUR DATA FROM DRAINING BECAUSE OF THE FAILING UPDATE.

Andrew GonzalezAndrew Gonzalez Posts: 12FreedomPop Newbie
Anyone that is losing data because of the update failing needs to GO TO "DATA USAGE" in the settings AND RESTRICT BACKROUND DATA ON GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES. This will PREVENT your DATA LOSS.

    This is not true. This only prevents Google from downloading updates to apps, it does not prevent OS updates from downloading.

    It works! This is how got my phone to stop trying to update every 5 seconds.

    Did you have any issues with calls or texts coming in after doing this?

    Is this still working for you?

    Thanks!!

    @Andrew Gonzalez by restricting google play background data might mess up your FP service..if you did this and text and calls work fine then let us know..FYI.if you are trying to stop automatic updates then go to Play store, click 3 bars by "Google play" and then go to settings and disable auto-update apps, or set them to update over wi-fi only.

    I've had no problems with calls or texts since I've done this.
