Before I go to the phone page itself, let's try the software page...
Because ultimately this is a software issue. (With the Android 13 One UI Uopdate)
Just FYI, my friends (2 of them) have an S22 Phone on Verizon and BOTH have had this issue for almost a month since they got the same update.
I am on T-Mobile and have a Fold 4 - update came a few days ago and BAM! My battery is like 3/4 a day quicker draining, and unless I restart the phone every 5-10 min, all apps and even google play store and Samsung apps like themes and such have NO data connection - some even when wifi is connected and working still act as if there is no data connection... ALL despite the phone showing 5GUC and FULL bars on top.
Went to t-mobile who says they have been flooded with calls on the same issue since they rolled out their version of the update (same as other carriers but made for their network and phones I am guessing) - ran tests and said their network is connected, my phones registered on it, and it is Samsung's issue - (tho they cannot legally say that but he said basically that is the issue - the One UI 5 Android 13 update) and said his hands are tied he cannot do anything to fix this.
I contacted support, (Samsung Support) who opened a case and would not admit the issue is widespread, said they don't feel too many people are having the same issue at all and said it was a "rare" case, and sent me to an Authorized Repair Center.
2 days later (and 5 factory resets later, so they say) they are baffled and said it is definitely an issue with the latest software update and will be communicating this to Samsung, (but off the record told me not to hold my breath) and then the repair center sent me packing with my phone still broke.
Soooooo, seeing my 2 friends have this exact issue - even on a different carrier than me, and different phone model, BUT with the same "Android 13 One UI 5" update - I know there have to be more of us with the same issue - please chime in here and let's show Samsung I am not crazy or an ***** or lying! I want this patched and fixed ASAP! This is unacceptable. I have been #TeamSamsung for over 10 years but now I am wondering how they could even let this happen - this is crazy!!!
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you have similar issues (and/or have a fix for this) post a reply, please!!!

FYI also noticing about 33% faster battery drain than before the update. NO new apps NO more use than before (lot less actually due to apps not working with no data) and still battery draining 33% on average faster than it did before...
Anyone having this issue too?
