Default Regaining phone signal problems?

Anyone else having issues with the phone never regianing its phone signal after being in an area with no signal, and have to turn on flight mode and off again to get a signal very annoying.

Thankfully, no. I loose signal about 30 times during the average train ride, but it picks back up nearly straight away.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

Try to put your phone in auto select operator. No manual select operator. And after that see tahat your problem persist.

I am getting constant data drops i.e. no data icon or internet, even though my note still shows data connected from quick settings bar, where I work the signal is a bad area indoors, also at home for the same reason, my work around is to switch airplane mode on and off again to restore data connection.
I have noticed this on all the 4.4.2 kitkat variants I have tested.

I found that grabbing the latest rom for your region and then flashing that and performing a full wipe sorted my issue when I had it.

Also, make a backup in Kies as this makes it slightly less painful to do.


It sent me round the twist, but luckily it is much better now!
