Pixel 3a Hitting T-Mobile IP Every Few Minutes

lukekl

    I recently bought a brand new Pixel 3a and noticed that it seems to be hitting a T-Mobile owned IP address every few minutes. I added the A record to the blocklist of my pi-hole and haven't noticed any negative impact to my phone but what is the purpose of this service and why is my phone trying to hit it every few minutes? I had an older Nexus 5x that never attempted to hit this address and none of the other phones in the house try to hit this address when connected to wifi.
