Fix, Mobile Data keeps disconnecting on OnePlus 8 Pro

Verify signal strength

In a lot of network issues, poor or weak signal is to blame. If your OnePlus 8 Pro 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, it’s possible that you may be transiting a dead spot. What you want to do is to move a known well-covered area. If No service remains, there may be an issue with your OnePlus 8 Pro. Continue troubleshooting it by following the steps below.

Verify connection speed

If there are no signal drops at all, it’s possible that the problem may be caused by a slow internet connection. If the internet is slow, it can sometimes manifest as being regularly disconnected. If the internet connection speed is way too low for your subscribed speed, you should consider getting help from your carrier about it.

Disconnect VPN

This only applies when you are using a VPN. VPN sometimes slowdowns the speed, resulting in no mobile data connectivity. Try to disconnect it and see how mobile works without it. If there’s no disconnection at all, the VPN service you’re using may be having some problems.
