Fix: Mobile data not working on Android

Thanks to the slow but constant power-up of the possibilities of the 5G network, travelling without a wireless connection is much less annoying. Although it is not a revolutionary change for the average user. On the other hand, network capabilities are not very useful if they just don’t work. And that’s the subject of today’s article. Learn what to do if the mobile data on your Android doesn’t work.

They came for the choices and solutions we have. You’ll find them downstairs.

Mobile data activated but not functional

If mobile data is switched on but does not work, first ensure good (or at least fair) network coverage. Try restarting the device and try again. In addition, mobile data may not work during a call.

Then go to Settings > Network and Internet and turn on mobile data from there. There seems to be a bug preventing the activation of mobile data from fast tiles. If the problem persists, check the steps below.

1. Check your SIM card

First of all, we have to make sure that the SIM card is correctly inserted, that you have not reached some kind of data limit and that the network coverage is not bad.

  • Make sure the SIM card is inserted correctly.
  • Under Settings > Network and Internet, select the SIM card and set it as the default for mobile data. If you have two SIM cards, temporarily switch off the other card and check the changes.
  • Restart your device.

2. Resetting your PDA

The second thing to try is to reset the APN settings. The name of the access point contains the configuration provided by the service provider (operator). Resetting the default setting should solve the problem.

Follow these steps to reset your Android APN

  1. Open the settings.
  2. Select Network and Internet.
  3. Select the SIM card.
  4. Press Access Point Names.
  5. Touch the three-step menu and select Reset to default.

3. Amendment Preferred Network Type

The next step is to move to a wider range of preferred network technologies available. We have suggested the option below, but you can also try others yourself.

Follow these instructions to change the desired network type:

  1. Return to the default SIM card in the network and Internet settings.
  2. Select LTE/TDSCDMA/CDMA/EVDO/GSM/WCDMA. Of course this depends on the capabilities of your service provider’s network, but the safest thing to do is to stick to the above configuration.
  3. Restart the device and look for improvements.

4. Ask your service provider.

The question remains unanswered, of course. Your operator must forward the configuration of the mobile phone in question via a configuration message. It is necessary that you contact them in order to obtain them. Normally this is done automatically by calling a certain code and selecting an option. Some large ISPs also offer a customer application.

If the problem persists, contact the operator and ask him to help you solve it.

5. Resetting the network settings

If we make progress, you should reset your network settings to the default values. This is often the best solution for connection problems.

Here you can learn how to reset the network settings:

  1. Open the settings.
  2. Select the system.
  3. Press Reset Settings.
  4. Select Reset Wi-Fi, Mobile and Bluetooth.
  5. Press Reset Settings.

6. Resetting the unit to factory settings

And, without recommending anything else, we recommend resetting the unit to the factory settings. If mobile data does not work on Android, even after the above recommendations, this is the last step to solve the problem. Don’t forget to back up your data and prepare for a few hours to restore your settings and preferences the way you want.

Here you can learn how to reset the device to the factory settings:

  1. Make sure you back up your data.
  2. Open the settings.
  3. Select the system.
  4. Press Reset Settings.
  5. Select Delete all data (reset to factory settings).
  6. Confirm your choice.

So we can talk about closure. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for such articles.
