J5 Mobile Data Not Working

Problem: For the past two days, I have been unable to access my internet browser on my Samsung J5. I don’t use Wi-Fi often I rely mainly on Data. Also the Play Store app will open, but it won’t let me search for apps, or open the list of apps I have installed. I don’t use any social media on my device, just messaging apps, like Whatsapp and Kik. They seem to be working fine i.e I can send and receive messages, send pics, but if someone sends a video it won’t play. Sending gifs through Kik also doesn’t work, and setting profile pictures also doesn’t work. I have tried doing a soft reset of the device, the problem persists. I have tried clearing the cache on the internet browser as well as data, that hasn’t helped. I am not too sure what else I can try.

Problem: I have a J5 .    It was having issues, rebooted randomly, and at times would reboot to the update menu.    I updated it to the latest software version, and now it’s stopped the rebooting and other random issues that I was having.   However, For some reason, I can only use the internet when I’m connected via wifi. If I’m not connected wifi, I get a message that I’m not online.   I can see that I have bars of connectivity, and the internet connection worked before the upgrade, I used it quite a lot the day of the upgrade. I am on the Walmart family plan, which I think uses the T-Mobile network.   Would you have any suggestions for me? Thank you. I appreciate the help.
