  1. I’ve tried option 1 and 2 with no luck. I couldn’t get my phone to do the force stop. When I tried it gave me a message about apps not working right if I did that. I told it to force stop anyway and it won’t do it. I’m afraid to try 3 and 4…

  2. Methods 1,2 and 3 did not work on my Samsung Note 5. Method 4 is too drastic, radical to me. Android engineers must correct this serious issue ASAP.

    1. Agreed, but you’d have to own a google phone to get that benefit. ;( This is not the only reason I’m seeing owning a proprietary version of andriod, where updates are slowed / blocked by the mfger and/or the cell network, is not in my best interests.
