Instructions

  1. 1
    Choose your operator manually.
    In normal mode, your phone automatically looks out for network signals and tries to configure it on its own. However, there is a chance that there is something wrong with this setting. You need to choose your operator manually. For this, just follow these steps:

    1. Go to "Settings".
    2. Choose "Wireless and networks".
    3. Choose "Mobile networks".
    4. Now, go to "Network operators".
    5. Lastly, go to "Choose Your Operator", and choose any operator/network that is not 02. Once you have chosen this, you need to locate "Unable to Connect". Once you have located this, select 02 again. Now, switch back to "Automatic". Restart your phone.

  2. 2
    Check for the Airplane Mode.
    There is a huge chance for this possibility. Many times, users accidentally switch to "Airplane Mode". Airplane Mode is the mode in which you are unable to send or receive messages or call. You need to make sure that the Airplane Mode is off and your phone is in Normal mode.

  3. 3
    Disabling the Wireless Networks.
    If your "Use Wireless Networks" option has been accidentally checked off, then your phone will not be able to receive any signals whatsoever. Make sure that this option has been selected, so that your phone can successfully catch signals. For this purpose, follow these steps:  
    1. Go to "Settings".
    2. Choose "Location Services".
    3. Now, select "Use Wireless Networks".
    4. This should pretty much solve your problem.

  4. 4
    Perform a Factory Reset.
    If none of the solutions have worked out for you, then maybe you're in trouble. This is your last option, and if the phone still doesn't show any progress, then there must be some internal defect in it. You would have to take your phone to the company and ask them to repair it. There may be some problem with your SIM card slot. Whatever the issue is, the technicians at the company will likely be able to help you in this regard.

  5. 5
    A quick note:
    Before you set out on the mission of resetting your phone, make sure you save all your data on your PC. For this, you can use any backup application. The most recommended one is Samsung Kies. Use it to make a backup copy of your entire data. Once you have stored all your data on your system, you can apply the Factory Reset on your phone. Then reboot your phone and check whether things have worked out in your favor or not.

If you can send and receive SMS without any problems on your device but you cannot make calls, then first, make sure that you have enough credits on your account to make a call. Next, make sure that you are on a place with a good signal so you will now have problems with placing calls. If you are on a place with little to no reception, simply move to a location with a better reception.

This may be happening because your mobile network recognizes that this device is a clone and is not an original device. From here you will need to contact your mobile carriers customer service in order to help connect your device/SIM to your mobile network successfully.

My network connection is Showing H+ but net is very slow?

In my Korean Galaxy S4 copy m facing this problem

This sometimes happens when you have too many apps running at the same time. You may want to close down some apps and then observe if you still encounter the same problem. In some cases when net is very slow, it does not always have to be a problem with the connection.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Also, this may be because your current location has very bad signal. It does not show you that you've lost your connection but it gets stuck to the previous H+ status but actually your connection has gone off already. You may want to go to another place with a stronger signal.

Why there is Network problem in my phone?

My phone randomly takes and leaves the network.there is no network problem in the area though.

It may be that you are in a very enclosed space and that the signal does not reach that part. Also, it may be that your phone is more compatible with other networks instead of the one you are using. Try to inquire from your network if they are imposing limitations in terms of the specific handset being used.

I have S4, and when I boot, there is no signal, it shows, (Emergency call only - GLOBE) how to fix this?

I already cut the stickers on the lower back of S4, I think it is use for the signal bar?

I have read that the sticker that you have in fact removed is used to generate signal from your device. When you in fact remove the sticker or back plate to the device you will remove the ability for your device to access signal. You are going to need to in fact:

I cannot find the settings written here in the blog?

My phone's setting is like this. Settings>More Network>Mobile Networks then the only option after is the data network settings and the Access Point Names. Since I bought this phone (July 29, 2015) I haven't experienced its 4G LTE feature. I've always been stuck on the 3G settings. I have tried: I've tried searching and exploring the whole settings and I cannot find anything regarding the Network mode and the Network Operator Settings. In one article here in the internet, he gave a code to LGUHiddenMenu. And there I found the Network Mode but unfortunately, I don't have a LTE B3 band on the option. I think it was caused by: Maybe because S4 is for jellybean or Kitkat yet my phone was updated to Lollipop version of Android (although others have these too and don't encounter problems) Or maybe we just don't have the 4G signal in our place. Or maybe because of the SIM (carrier) I am using.
