    Right. Physically restart the phone, not just "put it to sleep" as you normally would.

    That did not work.

    There is a Verizon place about 30 miles away. I will stop by after skiing tomorrow.

    FUCK APPLE

    FUCK APPLE. Last week my iPhone downloaded an updated iOS into my phone while I was sleeping. Now my Apple Car Play does not work on my 2018 Chevy. Worked great before this new iOS. Iím a tech JONG and have no idea how to fix this.
    New car obviously. As everyone loves their Apples and they just work... ;-)
    Check to see if there are any updates to your Chevy available for the Car Play firmware and all maybe. Google Search to see if others are having issues with the Chevy model and year you have maybe also.

    Pre-ordered the s23 Ultra today. After using both the S22 Ultra and the Pixel 7, I think Samsung is still the undisputed king of the premium android. I really, really wanted to love the Pixel but it was so damned glitchy.

    Looking forward to the lowlight camera functionality on the S23.

    If you want a very good phone (IMO) and don't want to spend a bunch, try the Motorola 5G phone I mentioned a few pages back. What a great phone for the $$$.

    I would never buy a Motorola over a Pixel. Just my experience over the years

    Motorola 5G Stylus. Simple I have never had a Pixel but have read about many glitches on the newer models where as the 5G stylus has been perfect for me so far.

    Uniherz Jelly 2 if you're looking to break the addiction. You can text on it and spotify and maps work but the screen is so small you won't want to do any actual "internet" stuff on it.

    Got my Pixel 5a going. Seems like a mild upgrade to the Pixel 3a that has been flaw free for 3 years. Exact same form factor with fingerprint on the rear, wired charging, and headphone jack. 128gb onboard is nice upgrade from 32gb. Specs say battery should last much longer.

    I would never buy a Pixel over a moto again. I had. Pixel 3a and it was alright, but didn't blow me away. But then the battery started getting worn. I switched back to moto.

    What phone now?

    Update on my Apple Car Play problem:

    Went to Verizon, they looked my phone over, did some stuff, declared phone was OK. They asked if they could try it in my car and immediately found the problem. Settings menu on my Infotainment screen did not show CarPlay installed.

    Pushed my OnStar button and got a nice person who transferred me to a tech person. They did some troubleshooting which was cool, you could see them remotely changing things on my screen. They said yes, I do have a problem, told me their tech team would work on it and get back to me.

    A week later I got a phone call from Chevy tech team saying they loaded some new software into my dash overnight via OnStar. They had me do a reset on my dash (engine off, key on, open driver door, put left hand on hip, right hand on head, spin around clockwise 3 times singing Iím A Little Teapot) and my dash flashed and bingo I had CarPlay back.

    So the problem was Chevy all along. I would say FUCK CHEVY but they did fix it for free with no dealer visit required.

    I hate all cell phones/smart phones. The Moto I have is the phone I have hated the least.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    I was wearing my GRTF vest when I pressed the OnStar button.

    So a new car may in fact been a fix

    Glad they got it straightened out without doing the drop it off at the dealer and leave it for the day... Remote Onstar and all.
