    My brand spanking new phone is a DooGee X5..Android 5.1

    I'd give you a link from Google but it won't let me..
    Therein lies the crux of the matter.
    I am not familiar with Android devices, having used an iPhone all this time.
    I made the maddening discovery that Android devices are tethered to
    Google in much the same way that Apple devices are to iTunes..

    Anyway I learned that I had to sign in to my email to activate
    PlayStore or the browser.
    It didn't work.
    I had to use WiFi to get a few necessary apps.
    Everything is as it should be with WiFi..
    I already have a data plan so obviously I shouldn't have to use WiFi..

    So now... I have an Internet connection thanks to my data plan.
    I can use WhatsApp just fine..
    But I can't access the rest.
    There's a lock icon in the URL..so I know the phone isn't malfunctioning.
    It's a Google sign in/syncing issue.
    As it stands I can't access any search engine..Wikipedia..Gmail or
    anything seemingly Google related.

    But when I type other URLs in the browser like..IMDb or BBC.com... or
    USA today..it loads just fine but without the lock icon..

    What should I do?
    I have signed in,adjusted the time and date..synced the account..The works..
    All to no avail..
    Do the VPN settings need to be adjusted?

    What am I overlooking?
