Connection intermittently drops when transferring files and charging on Pixel 3

4: Newbie

When charging my new Pixel 3 wirelessly it will intermittently stop charging from the Google Charger. Taking the phone off and putting it back will reconnect it. The same is happening via USB C and also when transferring data via USB C when midway through the process the phone will disconnect and reconnect to the PC.

I have tried a factory reset, checked for dirt in the port and followed various suggestions from the official Google Pixel forums with no success and think the phone may have a battery or power related fault. Who do I contact to get this sorted. I only have had the decice for around 3 weeks.

Have you tried another official data cord/ power brick too @slartster 


May I assume it hasn't been dropped.or had water damage.






A person has 30 days from ownership to have a faulty phone swapped.


Either pop into a Vodafone Highstreet Store or speak with customer service on 191 or Live Chat. owned after 30 days will have to be repaired.
