Verify signal strength

In a lot of network issues, poor or weak signal is to blame. If your Galaxy 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 to a known well-covered area. If No service remains, there may be an issue with your Galaxy S20. Continue troubleshooting it by following the steps below.

Verify Data Subscription

Mobile data is not free for subscribers, so a sudden stop for this service can mean settling your bills first. If you think that this factor can play a role in your situation, make sure to get advice from your carrier on what to do. In most instances, paying outstanding service will automatically restore the service.

Simple Reboot or Forced reboot

Well, I think you already know how to restart your phone. So 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 Pixel, 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.
  • While holding it down, press and hold the Power key.
  • Keep the button held for 10 seconds; it will be restarted automatically.

If this doesn’t work, then head to the next method.

Rebooting your device regularly at least once every week can be beneficial. If you tend to forget things, we suggest that you configure your phone to reboot on its own. You can schedule it to do this task by doing these steps:

  • Open the Settings app.
  • Tap Device Care.
  • Tap the 3-dot at the top.
  • Select Auto restart.

Reset Network Settings

  • Open Settings from either the Quick Nav menu or the launcher.
  • Scroll down and tap on General management.
  • Then tap on Reset.
  • Finally, tap on Reset network settings.
  • Then tap on Reset settings.
  • Confirm with your lock screen password when prompted.

Troubleshoot SIM card

Remove and Reinsert SIM Card

I don’t think you need another tutorial to reinstall a sim card on your device. Just remove the sim tray from the device, restart it, and then reinsert it.

  • Activate the flight mode.
  • Push Sim eject tool into the circular opening on the SIM card tray to remove it.
  • Power off the device.
  • Remove the Sim card from the Sim tray, then place it back in.
  • Push the tray back into the slot.
  • Boot the device.

Once you’ve removed the SIM card from the device, please wait for a few moments before re-inserting it. This has the effect of refreshing the system without the old cellular settings. Once the SIM card is re-inserted and the phone restarted, your network’s configuration should be added automatically.

If you have another phone that can work with your network, you can also insert the SIM card to it. This will help you check if there’s an issue with the SIM card itself. If the problem returns when you use the SIM card in the second device, you either have an issue with the SIM or the network. Try getting a new SIM card to see if it’s the SIM or the network.

  • Afterward, select your own network again and see if your device will now be able to re-register and fix the bug.

Troubleshoot apps in Safe Mode

In case you don’t know what is safe mode, in safe mode, the system temporarily disable all third-party applications you installed on your device. By doing this we can figure out which app is occurring the problem. Follow the below step to turn Safe Mode on:

Clear Cache from Recovery Mode

If you don’t know what recovery is, the first thing the bootloader rings up is the recovery. Recovery Mode refers to a special bootable partition, which contains a recovery application installed in it. And you can fix some problems with your phone. Follow the steps to clear cache from recovery mode:

  • Turn off your phone.
  • Once it is turned off. Press and hold the power/Bixby and volume down button simultaneously until the Android logo pops up.
  • When the green Android logo displays, release both buttons.

  • Press the Power button again to reboot the device.

This clears all the temporary data from the device. And then it works like new.

Contact your carrier

An issue from your network operator can cause no Service bug so you won’t be able to fix it on your end. Talk to your carrier and let them check the problem if nothing is fixed after a factory reset.

Visit the Service Centre

Although it’s rare, some cases of the issues on Samsung Galaxy devices may have bad hardware as the origin. If a factory reset won’t help fix your issue, visit your local Samsung store or Service Center so a qualified Samsung technician can examine the hardware. If needed, they may send it in for repair or replacement.

  1. If your earlier handset was not 5G ready, you might have to replace the SIM by visiting your mobile service provider.
    Note: if you have another 5G ready device, you can insert the current SIM. If it works in your older 4G device but not the 5G test device, you should try replacing with a newer SIM.
