Hello everyone.

I recently started having data issues the other day; regardless if I'm on wifi or 4G my Samsung S4 will not connect or is super slow to connect to data. I restored my phone to a previous backup and that seemed to fix it til sometime today when it stopped connecting. I figured it was some process or app keeping my phone from connecting and sure enough, when I disabled pagebuddynotisvc and froze it my connection came back strong. Does this make sense at all? I thought pagebuddynotisvc only dealt with notifications so I can't figure out why it would interfere with my data, and why it started to interfere so suddenly. Any help is appreciated.
