Here is our guide to the causes of low or no signal on your Samsung® or other AndroidTM phone as well as how to solve it.
Why Your Phone Shows a “no Service” Message
This warning on your phone indicates that your phone is unable to receive a signal from your cellular provider. You are unable to perform routine tasks like sending SMS and phone calls as a result.
You may quickly get your phone back in working order by following the 5 most popular remedies for network connection problems in this post.
- Restart Your Phone
Restarting an Android or Samsung phone usually solves signal or no service problems and is the simplest solution. Any processes that might be affecting the functionality of your device will be reset if you do this. This is how:
- Switch off your gadget.
- Wait 30 seconds after turning off the phone before turning it on.
- Once it reboots, see if this resolved the problem.
- Switch on And Off Airplane Mode.
Still, experiencing issues? Connect to your service provider manually if you can. All you have to do to re-establish a connection is turn Airplane Mode on and then off. In the event that it lost contact with a signal tower, this resets the device. To do this, all you have to do is swipe down from the top of your Home screen to show Quick Settings, touch Airplane mode to enable it, then tap it once again to disable it.
- Choose Your Network Providers by Hand.
Your device might be having problems locating your network, in which case you’ll need to choose it manually.
Navigate to Settings> Connections> Mobile networks> Network operators. There should be a list of network service providers. Choose yours to see if it resolves the issue.
- Verify Your Sim Card Once More
Your phone needs an address from your Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card for a network to find it, and vice versa. It’s conceivable that you bumped your phone, causing your SIM to become loose. Here’s how to determine whether yours is securely connected to your Samsung or Android device:
Turn off your phone.
Clean up any dust that might be interfering with the SIM card after removing it with an ejector tool or paper clip (not sure how to remove it? Visit our guide.)
- Reinstall your SIM to ensure a good fit.
- Restart your device to see if that resolves the problem.
- Restore the factory settings on your phone.
The last option is to reset your phone to factory settings, which deletes all of your personal data from it, including apps, passwords, pictures, and videos.
Most software issues can be fixed with a factory reset. However, backup your data first before attempting this technique as you risk losing it. Once you’ve done that, go with our step-by-step instructions for factory resetting your Samsung or other Android phone.

Always Begin by Turning on And Off Airplane Mode.
The quickest and simplest way to attempt to resolve your signal issues is to turn off and on your phone’s connection. Toggling Airplane mode restarts the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular network modems as you’re traveling from one place to another, forcing them to locate the strongest signal available.
To enter the Quick Settings panel, swipe down from the top of your screen, then tap the icon for Airplane mode. Await the complete disconnection of your phone’s cellular and Wi-Fi connections. Give it a good 15 seconds before tapping the Airplane mode icon once more because it doesn’t happen right away.
Depending on the iPhone model you have, you can access Airplane mode from the Control Center on an iPhone. To open the Control Center on iPhone X and later models, swipe down from the top-right corner. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen on previous iPhone models. The icon for Airplane mode will become orange when it is active, so tap it. Once more, give it a few further seconds before turning it off.
