Android 9 had a security update and it seems a couple of minor system changes. After the update the phone "feels" crisper and faster. Probably my imagination.

Where did you see the system update notice?

So far it's been great.  Signal strength is good and wifi calling works well.  I am impressed with the phone volume and have had to turn it down a bit.  Much louder than my Moto was. 

I will check on the system update, thanks.

Are the emails you're talking about replies to received messages or were they originals?
Do you use your phone for emails as well as your computer?

Is there any chance you deleted the email thread somewhere else in Gmail? For example, you might send an email, but if you later delete any replies you receive then you also delete it from your sent folder.

I'm finding that some recent Emails I've sent by Gmail are missing from my "Sent Mail" repository.

Why would that be happening?

How is T-Mobile and the 6T working out?

Looks like your 6T has an update pending.

I think it's as good as it's going to get. I spent an hour yesterday toying around with different locations, and found that where it is now offers the best signal boost. Until T-Mobile increases its coverage in this area, it's probably as good as it's going to get.

Good news, I'll bet that if you think about it some you could find a way to make it even better.

I received the CellSpot signal booster yesterday and installed it. There is no doubt that I have a better signal through the house, but it doesn't match the signal I receive downtown. Still, it is an improvement and I would call the signal "usable" compared to what it was.

The 5 bars that I now get throughout the house is deceptive. It doesn't mean that the phone now has a high-quality connection to the outside world, so much as that I have a great connection to the transmitter inside the house. I'll try moving the window unit to another location to see if I can improve the signal. In it's current location, the window unit is showing 3 of 5 bars.

My mobile data is now averaging between 1MB and 3MB down, whereas downtown I get as much as 50MB. Before the signal booster I was often getting far less than 1MB, and sometimes less than 1/2 MB. The improvement is sufficient that I can now stream iHeart continuously with few hiccups.

It didn't cost me anything and it did provide an improvement, so it stays.

EDIT: I moved the window unit over a couple feet and it improved the signal by another bar. I just checked and got 5MB down. I'd say that's a win. :)

George started with zero signal in the house. It is now 5 bars everywhere in their house.  No reason yours should be different.
