  1. I upgraded from a Note 10 to this because of the EXACT same problems. Nobody could help. At&t just told me to upgrade and ta-dah the same issues. Your fixes are the same, word for word… and none of them fix anything.

  2. I had this issue where i could not connect to the internet or make calls , it drove me nuts.
    I Tried all the recomended fixes. None worked.
    After many lengthy calls to Samsung they agreed to send a technician.
    He ran diagnostics and it all came back as no issues with the S22 Ultra.
    However he said he could see the Sim card tray was faulty. He changed this and now the phone works fine.
