Google announced they are making Pixel phone smore helpful via a series of feature drops. I got one of these “feature” drops with the December update that causes my Pixel 2 to not display signal strength to my AT&T microcell.

Actually, I am looking forward to seeing how well the Call Screening “feature” works. Right now I have Do Not Disturb enabled to only allows calls from phone numbers in my contacts. While this is effective for blocking the robo calls, it has also blocked legit calls when I forgot to disable Do Not Disturb.
