Bluetooth Audio Dropout on V30

    I got my V30 some time ago (two years ago?). When I got it from ATT it worked great and specifically BT Audio worked flawlessly with my BT headset and with various BT speakers and my car BT audio.

    At some point a few months after I got it ATT pushed a Android version update for the V30. This was officially pushed by ATT I don't side load anything.

    After that Android version update my V30 BT audio has audio drop outs every 20-30 seconds (drop lasts ~1/2 sec). The drop is not on a regular cadence but it happens on all my BT audio devices (headset, speaks, Car). I know it is BT bcos when the audio reconnects the song obviously did not pause(besides the vast majority of music I have is local). Also I can plug my BT speakers into the phone directly with a 2.5mm headset jack and the same exact audio plays fine.

    I have seen posts where LG admits the error and says a fix is coming. I've taken at least 4 or 5 official patch updates since this started and none of them ever fully fixed it, some got better but I wonder if the bug is untouched and external perf in unrelated areas are making it happen less or more.

    The result of all this is that I frankly want to toss the phone. In some ways I use my music WAY more than make calls. Failing audio makes the phone near worthless.

    Has anyone seen this and more important has anyone actually fixed it?

    Thanks in advance...
