What to do after the network settings reset?
Immediately after the reset, the following will occur in your phone:
All Bluetooth connections will be deleted. So if you have a bunch of devices that you’ve paired or connected with your phone, you will have to re-pair or reconnect them.
While this procedure deleted those connections, their performance and capabilities won’t be affected.
This also includes the cellular data, wherein your phone will get the default Access Point Name (APN) settings right after the network settings reset.
That’s one of the reasons why internet connection issues that occur without apparent reason or cause, especially if you’re using mobile data to connect, will often be fixed by this procedure.
If it happens that your service provider has a new set of APN, you will soon get a prompt that you need to update the carrier settings of your device.
Most of the time though, carrier settings are updated automatically with of without the prompt.
As mentioned earlier, your Wi-Fi connections will all be deleted. So you will have to reconnect to the networks you’ve been connected with prior to the network reset.
This procedure can also fix issues with these services.
So if you think your Galaxy S22 cannot pair with your Bluetooth headset or speaker, or you don’t have good internet connection using mobile data or Wi-Fi, just reset the network settings and it might help you fix the problem.
The good thing is that for any network issue that can’t be fixed by this procedure, you can always do the factory reset on your Samsung Galaxy S22 if necessary.
And that’s how you reset the network settings on your phone.
We hope this guide can help.
