I'm not sure if this is a glitch or not. I "think" my signal is fine. WiFi always shows
on, even if I'm not home. I always have a wifi turned on though, just don't always have a signal obviously. My mobile network signal has gaps in it where I would assume it always be green or tan or whatever. My phone seems fine, unless of course ppl are calling me and I'm not realizing it. Any ideas. Here is a pic.

Looks like signal drop outs for X periods, or the device is trying to search for it.

Wouldn't those times show up in red? It's almost like airplane mode in and out, without effecting wifi. I'm wondering if it is not a glitch though. Bc time on for cell stand by is the SAME as time on battery. And time without a signal is 0%. Would that not mean that is a glitch then in the green bar. Also, before this started I would get green and yellow/gray bars in the status thing. Now it's green or nothing.

Signal drop out don't show up in red for me, - but it would seem a weird anomaly for sure.

Hmmm...I think it's fair to say this must be a VERY rare issue.

Unhappy
Not exactly the same issue, but similar sort of thing. Shows as no signal in known good areas, or shows as having signal but often won't send or receive txts or calls. Oddly enough, when signal cannot be found the data will often still work.
The phone is branded to my carrier so there should be no provider issues. Sim card has been swapped, factory resets done and even had the handset exchanged for another S5 - still no change. It's pretty frustrating to not know if you can use your phone as a phone.
Is anyone else having this issue or is it time to go back to my N4?
