Telstra widgets not updating

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I decided to adopt a second SIM to use for testing phones to avoid the hassle of switching out my main SIM all the time. Well, since 1996, with the same number, which is forever. The two things that irritate me about the Telstra widget are: 1. It often looks like this: That is, it says “Unable to display your usage when on Wi-Fi.” In order to make it work to check your data you have to get away from your Wi Fi access points so that it connects back via the 4G network. Perhaps it’s about time Telstra did something about it.

Or if you want to count land lines, I’ve been on Telstra since 1980. But I chose Optus pre-paid because I wanted a backup in case Telstra was ever down, and I liked the ability to carry over data on the Optus pre-paid. They are like continually running mini apps that can provide you information about something or other. It frequently stops working, and just shows a message saying “An error has occurred”. Or you have to switch Wi Fi off to achieve the same end. Update (at Sydney airport, a few hours later): Just to be clear, this is what the Telstra Widget is supposed to look like: Oh, and here’s what it looked like a few minutes before that (I had to tap on it, taking me to the Telstra online data, to fix it): Inconvenient, huh?

(Not to mention that the 3GB data allowance is more than my more expensive post-paid Telstra plan.)It has also given me the chance to compare certain aspects of mobile telephony and data between providers. Meanwhile, while the other phone is connected to the exact same Wi Fi access point, the Optus widget looks like this: That is, it tells me how much data I have left, how many days remain in the period, and when it was last updated.

I tried the Android N beta some time ago (I can't remember if the widgets updated then though). But I'm guessing the Android N beta has nothing to do with my problem? Are there some settings that I could have executed that froze my widgets?

But because there were some problems with applications I use daily, I reverted back to my old Android 6.0.1 build. Maybe something with battery optimizations or something?

I don't have to mention to you that widgets that aren't updating are very annoying.

As I already mentioned, I'm using a Motorola Nexus 6 with stock Android 6.0.1 on it.

I have all the latest version of the Android version for my phone, and have installed all security patches.

So I got into the Android widget documentation to find out what made the widgets tick. Or in my case, why they didn't tick. So I found out, that one widget can actually block the updating of the other widgets. Not on purpose, but by accident. So by adding every widget seperately, with a lot of time in between, I could notice that.

Solved Hi Guys, Not sure if this is by design, but I can't seem to get a widget on my home screen to show my shared data usage. It let's me select any and all of my plans individually, but - 649175.

Why does this app/widget not work correctly on a Telstra Samsung S3? Surely a built in app should actually work correctly? The app/widget is horrendously slow in updating. It's now pm - 64488.

I've just updated TelstraOne, and some of my widgets are black/displaying no content. Start TelstraOne from your application menu – this will force the device to connect to the server; Restart your device. Sometimes, I get an "unable to update" message for news/sport/weather. We are aware of this issue and are working on.

Secondly a nice feature would be a "refreash all" function and not just having to refresh every service individually. This widget onlly caters. Keen to understand your experiences with overnight automatic refreshing of the widget as well as if you have any issues with the widget linking to incorrect services. Also just keen to.
