  1. I had the bluetooth keeps stopping and no wifi on my pixel 3xl today. I tried everything short of factory reset but nothing worked. I decided to try a factory reset and so began to backup all my apps and transfer everything over to my ancient pixel 2 xl. After I removed my sim card from the pixel 3 to put into the pixel 2, I remembered that I needed to backup some missed info on the pixel 3. When I powered it up, I noticed that bluetooth and wifi were both functioning normally again…for those of you who are having this bluetooth/wifi issue, maybe give that a try.
    BTW, I went ahead with the factory reset anyway and so far it seems that everything is working fine.

    • I factory reset my phone and the problem came back. I was part of the Beta for Android 12 and it was also a problem. Hopefully when they release the final version of Android 12 it will fix the issue.
