Unfortunately I lost cellular connection. I can neither call nor text, I keep on getting not registered on network error.I can also search for network operators it says error.I wiped cache partition and factory reset but still no cellular connection. If I put the line in another phone it works fine. I also checked if my imei is blacklisted but it isn’t so I think the problem is due to the update. My device type is SM-N920C. Please help!

It charged for about 5 minutes then stopped working. I tried cleaning the port but that did not work. I also tried using a different cord.

Note 5 Poor Network Connection

Problem: I have always had excellent network signal in my home and about from Verizon, until about July this year when I noticed a huge connection problem start affecting my phone, with network and even WiFi connectivity. I used to always have 4g lte even in my basement where I could watch videos clearly, until July possibly after I updated it I’m not totally sure,. Now it struggles to stay connected to network or WiFi. WiFi constantly connects and disconnects, mobile network is constantly on 3g or it cuts completely out saying 1x on top with 1 or two bars. Internet browser says I am off-line a lot. And the signal jumps from one to another to another 1x, 3g, 4g, mostly 3g and 1x. Do u think this is my antenna? Frustrating

Solution: The best way to troubleshoot this issue is to first check if the problem is caused by a software glitch by doing a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset. Once the reset is complete do not install any apps in your phone yet. Try to check first if the issue still occurs. If it does then this could already be caused by a faulty hardware component in which case you will need to have this checked at a service center.

Note 5 Only Turns On If It Is Cold

Problem: I was cleaning phone and dumping memory… Then my phone would get stuck with the dead Android pic. I installed wakelock. It helps. But with a brand new battery when it gets to 10% it won’t turn back on by itself. Get a fresh battery, still won’t turn on . For some reason when it’s cold, it starts right up. We’ll now my issue is that updates are trying to push.. Full battery and on charger, when SW downloads & gets to the point where it needs to restart… It turns off and won’t come back on until I do freezer trick. After it comes back on it says download incomplete… I think I might have deleted some file it needs to reboot/recover. Help, I love this phone.

Solution: This appears to be a hardware related issue already possibly caused by a faulty internal component that fails to work if the phone gets hot. The best way to proceed in this case is to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
