Those who’re using the T-Mobile or Sprint carrier on their devices, especially on the Samsung Galaxy models, may encounter the consistent notification issue whatsoever. After the recent patch update on Galaxy devices, many users are irritated by the Carrier Hub Processing Requests. Constant Notification Won’t Go Away issue all the time on the notification panel. The processing requests notification remains infinitely.
Carrier Hub is a mobile application for T-Mobile or Sprint carrier users that allows voice-over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) and secure Wi-Fi on devices specific to the T-Mobile/Sprint carrier network. It also works as a network engineer for customer-reported services and issues. Now, if you’re one of the victims of the same issue, you can follow this troubleshooting guide to try resolving this issue. So, without further ado, let’s get into it.
Fix: Carrier Hub Processing Requests – Constant Notification Won’t Go Away
Although the Carrier Hub app may stop working or crash sometimes, the chances are high that the processing requests notification can’t be closed from the notification shade on Samsung Galaxy devices. T-Mobile One UI 4 Beta 2 Notification panel shows “MCM client requests processing” all the time, according to reports on the GalaxyS21 subreddit. So, here we’ve provided some workarounds that may help you out.
Do keep in mind that not everyone will benefit from the following methods. Still, it would be best if you did them all individually.
1. Update the Carrier Hub app
If restarting your handset doesn’t come in handy, then update the Carrier Hub app. It would be best if you headed to the Google Play Store app > Search for Carrier Hub and check whether the latest update is available. An outdated Carrier Hub app version can cause issues with stability or performance. If the update is available, install it.
- Open the Google Play Store app > Tap on the three-dots icon at the top-right corner. [profile icon]
- Go to My apps & games > Here, you’ll find out Carrier Hub if an update is available.
- Tap on Update next to Carrier Hub > It’ll automatically install the update.
2. Clear the Cache and Storage of the Carrier Hub
The second thing you can do is to clear out the Carrier Hub app cache and the storage data from the settings menu to refresh the app cache & storage if anything conflicts with it. Sometimes a corrupted app cache or data can cause such crashing issues. To do so:
- Go to the device Settings menu > Tap on Apps & Notifications.
- Tap on the See all apps option to view your device’s installed apps.
- Next, locate and select Carrier Hub from the list > Tap on Storage & Cache.
- Tap on Clear cache to delete the cached data.
- Now, tap on Clear storage and select OK to delete the app storage data from the phone.
- Go back once to the App Info page again and select Force stop of the Carrier Hub app.
Note: Now make sure to turn on the Airplane Mode on the handset and then turn it off after a couple of seconds. The problem should have gone now. However, rebooting the device will bring back the MCM Client again.
3. Disable Notification for Carrier Hub
Make sure to turn off the Carrier Hub notification on your device to hide it until the problem gets solved temporarily. To do so:
Head over to the Settings menu on your device > Go to Notifications > Next, turn off and then turn on again notifications for Carrier Hub. The processing requests notification will go away.
Otherwise, please turn off the notification by pressing & holding it > Select Turn Off Notifications or Mute Notifications.
4. Uninstall Carrier Hub using ADB Commands
If none of the methods worked for you, then try performing the following steps to uninstall Carrier Hub using ADB commands on the device with a PC.
- Open the device Settings menu > Tap on System.
