Verizon Wireless Customer Support, @YosefT_VZW
I do not see how "advance WiFi calling has an impact on the issue with account syncing. I, and many others having an issue where applications, those native to android and third party apps, and not syncing automatically in the background when the phone is connected to WiFi.
As a result, we are not receiving notifications for many applications while our phone are connected to WiFi. This is an issue with devices that have been upgraded to Lollipop. In order to receive updates from applications, you either have to open the application and force it to sync OR disconnect from WiFi.
I've seen this to be called the "WiFi syncing bug" that was at issue in lollipop prior to the release, but was not fixed.
I just noticed that every single google app including my verizon app show to be downloaded on 03/12/1970 in my phone. I checked the date and time in the settings to make sure they weren't the problem and they are fine. I want to say this might be the culprit although I can connect to other people's wifi without a hitch
Some of the issue there has been nailed down, I think, to the IPv6 settings on the device and router. If your router isn't set up to use IPv6, that can cause the failure with simultaneous connections. I'd check your router and make sure that it is set up to use IPv6. Let us know how it goes.
caecilia97 I've read a few places where there has been an IPv6 problem. Which is understandable, but to release phone software that requires you to change setting on external hardware is unacceptable.
There appears to be a particular setting that was released in Lollipop that was not prevalent in KitKat, that is causing a wifi syncing issue. If it has to do with IPv6, it should be something that Google/Verizon should be looking to fix, not something that the end consumer should have to modify in order to fully use their device.
@NicandroN_VZW from what I'm seeing this is not an issue with WiFi or wifi settings/connection. It is a widespread issue with Lollipop that Google and many carriers are ignoring because no solution has been found.
