Users that are currently involved in testing Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 update report issues that appear with the dead zones. According to them the signal on the phone is hard to find and it takes too long to get connected. The service is in active testing for over two months now.
Apparently, the major question when it comes to the massive platforms is whether the pipelines are advanced and all the features can work properly. It is crucial to make sure that there are no bugs on your way. This is why Android 13 QPR1 is still in active testing with testers around the world trying to find possible problems. It went through 3 different iterations. Now testers have found the main issue that requires a fixture before the update’s official release which is expected next month.
According to a recent report made by the tester via Reddit, simple garage parking may shut down the signal of the cell. It can’t be reached until you find the signal, walking to another spot. However, when you just bring the phone to the surface, out of the garage, you will find it difficult to connect to Verizon. To restore the connection you need to turn on and off Airplane Mode. The bug may not seem that significant until you park your car under the ground and you decide to call someone.
Other users confirm the same issue. It looks like not all phones have this problem. It was reported that claims come from the owners of Pixel 5 and 6. Some countries including Spain and Italy have the problems, while others don’t. Many reports claim that the signal can randomly disappear from 2 to 30 minutes without any garage or basement. Developers have to keep in mind the problem and fix it.
