Verify signal strength

In a lot of network issues, poor or weak signal is to blame. If your Samsung Galaxy A50 is showing No Service all the time recently, be sure to check how the signal bars are showing on your device. Anything lower than 3 bars is not good and can indicate a network issue.

If you are inside a building, try to go out and see if No Service goes away. If you are traveling by car, you may be transiting a dead spot. What you want to do is to move a known well-covered area.

Simple Reboot or Forced reboot

Well, I think you already know how to restart your phone. So just restart the device and see whether it solves the issue or not. Restarting a device is always the ultimate solution for any issue. Not only Galaxy but this applies to every electronic device. I used to tell my mom to restart her device if she faces any issue with her smartphone.

Well if you still need to know how to restart then, here is it: Press your phone’s power button. On the screen, tap Restart.

The other way of the reboot is as follows:

  • Press and hold the Volume Down button.
