    How to fix the networking problem?
    Well, here is the catch. There is no "apply one solution to all problems". Just like the root of the problem itself is unknown, similarly, the solution is also not a fixed one. For some users, one solution would work, and for others, something else would work. Therefore, we have listed almost all the possible solutions here. Try each and see what works out for you.

  2. 2
    Check your SIM Card.
    The most common reason for your problem is that there is something wrong with the SIM card and not with the reception of your Korean Samsung S3. Make sure that your SIM is clean. Use it in some other phone to see if it's working fine on that phone or not. Clean your SIM Card slot as well.

  3. 3
    Make sure your location is receiving signals.
    There is a possibility that maybe there is something wrong with your location or maybe the network is down. This possibility is very rare; however, if you suddenly feel like your signals have dropped overnight, then there is a huge possibility that there is nothing wrong with your phone set, it's the network that is down.

  4. 4
    Do a Factory Reset.
    This can be your last resort. If this doesn't work out, then maybe you would have to contact the company. However, before you decide to go for a Factory Reset, make sure you have saved all your data somewhere because Factory Reset erases all the data from the phone's memory. Perform a backup on your data by using Samsung Kies Download this application and install it on your PC or Laptop, whatever is easiest for you. Now, connect your device to your system. Open Samsung Kies and click on the "Backup/Restore" tab. This will allow you to select all the data that you need to save for future purposes. Save all the data and then apply a Factory Reset on your phone:  
    1. Go to "Settings".
    2. Select "Back up and Reset".
    3. Choose "Factory Data Reset".
    4. Choose "Reset Device".
    5. Now, choose "Delete All".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Now that you're done with the Factory Reset, your phone will be in its original settings - the ones it had when you first bought it. The last thing to do is to restore all the data that you had on your cellphone. For this, you can again take help from the application you just installed on your system, Samsung Kies. Connect your Samsung S3 to your system and open Samsung Kies. Choose the "Backup/Restore" tab and then click on "Restore". All of your data will be restored on your cellphone. Now, see if your network settings are working or not. If all has gone well and there is no serious problem, then your network settings should be working just fine. Best of luck!

How can I switch my Samsung Galaxy S3 E210L from G to 3G?

When I turn data network on, the first 2 to 3 minutes it runs 3G then automatically converts it to G. After that I charge my phone to 100% then restart it then it will again run 3g for couple of minutes. Kindly give me a permanent solution for my problem or give me a secret code from where I can manually change my HSDPA, CDMA, etc settings.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Back up your phone and perform a factory reset. This glitch happened after Samsung sent out the 4.3 update. Changing your settings will not resolve the situation because of this update. If you do not want to factory reset your device, Data Connection Fix is an app in Google Play that you can use but it is not a permanent solution.

    Go back into the first APN settings menu and tap on the new APN section to make it active. Reboot your phone. This is what you will need to do each time you swap SIM cards. Usually after you save the first time, you just have to tap the APN to make it active and reboot when you swap out the SIM again.

My network service provider has done all settings on my Korean Samsung S3, but I can't still access my internet. I am in Ghana at the moment. Please help assist resolve the problem. Thanks

If you purchased the phone in the US or some other country, it is possible that your SIM is not a global one to connect all over the world. Countries use different waves like the difference between GSM and CDMA. Some people have had success connecting when the phone is set to airplane mode though.

Configure the APN settings for your phone. When you hard reset, you must have wiped out all of the correct settings. Take your phone to your phone carrier's store location and request that they put the APN settings in again for you.

My shv-e160L doesn't have constant signal?

Hi sir, my phone has a poor signal whenever I'm inside the house the mobile signal disappears but when I'm outside the house even though it has a full bar of signal I can't even get a call or text...what might be the problem.? When I'm using another phone the SIM card is functioning well..

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

There can be several reasons to that. The least possible is your phone having a faulty antenna. It also can be your carrier's network coverage. SHV-E160L supports 2G, 3G, and LTE. While your other phone may support only 2G and 3G. SHV might be trying to connect to the LTE network, which may have a weaker coverage over your area. However, this is strange that it shows you the full bar.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

The older phone may connect over 2G. Check that by looking at the icon at the top. "EDGE", "2G", or just arrows in a house at the top may mean that the coverage is good only for 2G or EDGE networks.

iPhone 5c had a similar problem on networks having a very small LTE coverage and a bad 3G coverage. The phone kept trying to connect at LTE, get no response even when calling, switch to 3G, get poor signal, and barely function. There were tricks that forced a 2G connection to make the phone functional.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If this is your case, Try disabling LTE or 3G on your SHV-E160L. You will have to use its secret menu.

Internet connectivity .how do I get my Samsung Galaxy S3 e210l to work using mobile internet connection?

My e210l cannot connect to mobile data yet all the access points are properly installed

First, make sure that you have Mobile data enabled in your Network settings. If this is not disabled then follow the steps in this VisiHow article on this page. Sometimes, a full factory reset gets your phone connecting again but use this as a last resort.

I think it was caused by: I can't understand that. because SIM card is new as well as when that SIM card is put to another phone signal is very well.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Use the Data Connection Fix app to solve your connection issue. You could go back and put in the APN values again though to see if that suddenly helps but it probably will not. The app will at least allow you to get a better connection signal but you need to reboot your phone after you change a SIM and put in the APN again. If you did not reboot then this is your problem.

My Samsung Galaxy S3 phone, 3G signal week?

Samsung Galaxy SHV-E210L model, phone is not receiving 3G signal. Please help me set up the signal setting

You need to contact your carrier to get the APN codes for your device. If you are in a location that does not overlap the 3G signal then your phone will not pick up enough to make it connect to the 3G. You can install a Custom ROM for a repair patch. Specifically, the ROM posted is the one you want to use.

My Korean S3 is totally dead cannot switch ON?

Before damage It felt hot from the bottom of my S3 and suddenly shutdown and I cannot open it anymore, any ideas please

Your battery is fried most likely. Pull the back off the phone and see if your battery looks distorted or even slightly melted/bulging. If you have a spare battery, pop it in and see if it works then or take it to a repair shop where they usually have a battery to access.

You flashed from another region's Stock ROM. You will need to contact your carrier and get the correct APN settings. Before you flash your phone, always back up the APN settings to avoid this. Your carrier will be able to give you the correct APN codes.

Did you turn off the Auto Connect function in network settings? Pakistan has a different GSM than Pakistan so if your SIM card is the initial one from Korea then your phone will not work. Zong in Pakistan lists their APN settings to configure for Pakistan.

I want to know my credit balance, I pressed keys *118# then,I found "undefined additional service" on phone in Korean version, how can I solve this problem.

To know the USSD code for the balance, you will need to contact your carrier, as the code differs from one carrier to another. If you are not sure who your current carrier, you can take the SIM card out and look at it for any identification. Then, locate the carrier online to contact it. Your can also have some applications or menu options activated by your SIM card where you can check the balance.
