There can be many reasons for no Internet coverage with the "Mobile data" toggle being turned on.

  • First of all, check the 2G, 3G, and 4G coverage of your carrier. Some carriers have maps with areas marked correspondingly. Sometimes, carriers experiment with 4G or 3G coverage while the signal is absent or too weak even in the coverage area. To solve it, switch the network mode. Press the home button .Tap on "Apps". Tap on "Settings". Tap on "More settings". Tap on "Mobile networks". Tap on "Network mode". Tap on a different mode.
  • If you are in roaming, data roaming may be disabled by your carrier. You will need to check the web site of the carrier for self-service or contact your carrier otherwise to see if the restriction of the service is not in place.
  • Delete and recreate Access Point Names ("Settings" > the "Connections" tab > "More settings" > "More networks" > "Mobile networks"), which are, basically, you carrier settings. For more details on this, contact your carrier.
  • Go to "Settings" > the "Connections" tab > "More settings" > "More networks" > "Mobile networks". Tap on "Network operators". Search for one manually and tap on it.
  • It is possible to get in a low-signal area owing to objects or interference. Try to move away outside or from the area.
  • Update your device by following our tutorial on how to do that.
  • Check the settings for your carrier once again.
  • A bad SIM card. You will see no signal icon on your phone. Sometimes, SIM cards break. Replace them at the carrier office or by ordering one.
  • You have used up all of your Internet traffic for the plan. Check your data plan at the carrier for that.
  • Check the "Data Usage Limit" setting in "Settings" > "Data Usage". It should not be limiting data use.
  • There is a third-party application that uses up all of your Internet traffic on the background.
  • Use another updated browser.
  • Turn off your device. Take the battery out for 20 seconds. Place it back and turn the device on.
  • Finally, you can hard-reset your device. This will erase all of the data.
