The Reason Why You are experiencing Not Registered On Network error

 

not registered on network

This error may occur because of the firmware or software  not being up to date, and your phone may be running the earlier software update. Not Registered On Network error is a common android problem that occurs on T-Mobile, Vodafone, AT&T, Airtel, Rogers, Virgin and even after rooting your device.

Also, when your phone is locked to a carrier, it may also display such error.

How To Fix Samsung Galaxy Not Registered On Network

 

Method 1

Make sure you are connected to a Wireless connection:

  • First Get Your Galaxy up and running, charged and ready
  • Put the SIM card in phone
  • Navigate to Settings of your Phone
  • Scroll down to reach the extreme bottom
  • Select Software Update
  • Wait for it to reboot and complete the update
  • Finished!

 

If  the method above does not work for you, I highly recommend you read –Restore Galaxy Null IMEI # and Fix Not Registered on Network.

 

Method 2

I found this solution by  working around with my Samsung galaxy phone. Please follow this method precisely, and if it doesn’t work at the first attempt, try doing it again.

  • Turn off your phone by holding the Power Button and the Home in conjunction.
  • While the phone is off, wait for 2 minutes.
  • After 2 minutes, remove the battery and the SIM card from the phone
  • Press the Power button and the home button together for 10 consecutive times.
  • Afterwards, hold the power and home keys for 1-3 minutes.
  • Next, insert your SIM card and the battery
  • Turn on your Samsung galaxy.
  • While your phone is on, remove your SIM card, and then re-insert it. Repeat this five times.(On some android phones you need to remove the battery before you can take out the sim card. If this is this issue,please skip this step)
  • A message will appear saying that you need to “Restart your Phone”- click it.
  • Finally, your Samsung galaxy should boot up with no errors.

 

Method 3

If the methods above  didn’t work, then the problem lies with your SIM Card.

Trying a different SIM card might solve the problem. It worked for most people.

Method 4

Update your APN Settings. To do that, under Wireless and Networks, click Mobile Network > Access Point Names > click Menu, left button from the home key > New > now enter the require APN settings for your carrier.

If you are using T-Mobile enter this

Method 5

Go to Settings of your phone, then Wireless & Networks > Mobile Networks > Network Operators > Select your own network.

 

Method 6

Not registered on network may also occur because the SIM card was not placed correctly, which may cause mobile network not available and error searching for network.

Summary

  • Go to Mobile network settings from Settings.
  • While you are in mobile settings, you have to hold the power button and home button together until your device turns off.
  • While your Galaxy is off, gently remove the battery.
  • Press the home button and power button together for 10 seconds.
  • Then, press and hold the power and home buttons for 1-2 mins – this will drain all static charges.
  • Insert your battery now.
  • Boot up your Samsung galaxy with the SIM Card.
  • Do not attach the back cover yet.
  • While your phone is on, remove then insert the SIM card 3 times.(On some android phones you need to remove the battery before you can take out the sim card. If this is this issue,please skip this step)
  • You will be prompted to restart your phone.
  • Restart your phone and you will no longer see an error while searching for network.

After contacting service provider Straight talk bring your own phone, verizon) They did something when they had me to do this and that so now I can’t make calls or receive.

  10. Thanks, the 2nd method worked for me the first time I tried it, but I turned off my phone by holding down only the power button and not in conjunction with the HOME button because I didn’t know where the home button was until after I googled it AFTER turning off the power. I also skipped the part where you take the SIM card out while phone is on because it’s blocked by my battery. But the method still worked. I have a Galaxy On5.

  11. I got scammed and received a galaxy S10 Plus dual sim (possible clone) I put my sim in and done APN settings auto and manually, and it wouldn’t get service.

So I got to looking further more and the serial number is something insane like 123456789, I get WiFi connection and the phone acts like a actually device except it won’t take my sim. I took it to Metro PCS and they Said it was not an eligible wireless device. Any advice? Or any thing I can do to get this phone working?

  16. I have Samsung on7 pro for over a year. First 10 months it worked ok with 4g jio and regular 2g airtel. Suddently after 10 months period it stopped working as 4g phone and it works as 2g only. Jio sim not working in this phone and no 3g/4g data network works, but 2g data transfer takes place. Showed in the Samsung Care and they want me to upload software and charged for it as well. The situation remains same, but it was good enough to use as 2g phone. By the way wifi works so I have brought a JioFi and kept the jio 4g sim in JIoFi and used throgh 4gvoice app. So I am using4g sim loaded in JioFi and use the jiovoice to make calls and messages. But Suddenly 2g sim also failed. No always it gets “no Service” on the phone screen and when I try to make a call it says “mobile network not available”. Occasionally the sim signal comes and at times i can make a call also. Most of the times it gets disconnected in minutes. I have done factory reset couple of times, it did not work. The problem remains same. Can you help me to solve this problem.

  24. My LG V20 US996 phone was giving the Phone Not Registered Yet message. It came with Android 7.0 Settings’ About phone>Update Center>Software Update said the phone was not updated but when I tried to do the update for the phone (not the apps) I got that message: Phone is not registered yet.
    I am using Tracfone as the carrier but I had Tracfone’s Bring Your Own Phone package that I bought at Best Buy for a dollar.
    It contains three Sim cards: ATT, T-Mobile, and Tracphone.
    I had the Tracfone card in the phone and getting that “…not registered yet…” message. So I used your 3rd suggestion first since I had the extra Sim cards available. I replaced the Tracfone card with the ATT card and then tried the update. It took it! The new Android is downloading as I write this. Mucho gracias!

  25. HEllo Sir ,

    I followed your Method 6 It works only for few minutes and again same problem, again if i follow same method it works for few minutes.. Please help me out with permanent solution iam using HTC desire 816 dual sim mobile..

    Not registered on network may also occur because the SIM card was not placed correctly, which may cause mobile network not available and error searching for network.

  26. my galaxy note 3 n900 started showing this “not registered on network ” error from nowhere, ive tried all the methods above bt its not working….i also tried flashing to replace the old kit kat 4.4.2 with lollipop 5 bt still no change……whasup with these samsung phones……..anyone who can help pliz give me feedback on my email
    [email protected]

  27. Do absolutely nothing. My sim card was registered in LA – network not registered message was showing in Page az. There was no proper signal with my serice provider even though the signal bars were nicely displayed. I moved on and voila: phone started working and rocking good ever since. So do nothing: move away.

  28. Many of these methods require removing the SIM card while the phone is on. In my phone, (Galaxy Mega 6.3) you have to remove the battery to get the SIM card, so it’s impossible to “remove the SIM card while the phone is on.”
    Also, Method 4, update APN, for t-mobile, your fields don’t match mine (Android 4.4.4) your especially missing the APN, which is crucial.

  29. Hello guy’s please can u assist me.I have a Samsung a7 700f. The main board was changed by Samsung then imei was also rewritten by them less then a month it has same issue imei fail cert no network.plz help

  30. Nice helpful article for not registered on network error in phone….I placed my sim card upward down creating the issue for me

  31. how the hell are you supposed to take out the sim card while the phone is on…when you need to take out the battery to take it out???

  32. Hello. I’m praying you can help me. I have a Samsung Note 3 (2yrs old) My problem began about a mth ago with intermittent text/picpic msg not being received on my end or the other persons..I finally called T-mobile we troubleshooted and problem fixed.. Two days after troubleshoot I’m getting “not registered on neteork” Again TS with T-mobile and nothing worked. System is updated and tried all but one of your methods an still no luck..The method where you replace the battery and SIM then while battery in remove and replace SIM 5x (I think it ws) I was unable to do because the battery blocks the SIM. It’s really disappointing to buy a $700+ phone and 2yrs later $$$ down the drain. I’ve purchased much cheaper and older Androids at this point and they still work!! Have you came up with any other methods or can gv me any other advice? Please and thanks in advance!! Signed ~ FRUSTRATED CONSUMER!!

  33. Thanks TechnoBezz,
    I havent even done all the steps from method 2 and my issue had repaired. I really appreciate people who make websites like this because without them most people would have serious financial problems because they probably would buy new phones all the time. Thanks a lot.

  34. I’m pretty sure method 2 is just a joke to get people to look like idiots pressing random buttons then holding them for ridiculous amounts of time, all while there’s no battery in your phone!! And to top it off, repeat that *five times*??? Seriously sheeple use your brain for that one!

  35. Method 1 there is no select software option in the settings for the S5. Method 2 if you press the home and power buttons simultaneously all you get is a screens hot. Method 3 dim card works fine on another phone. Method 4 you have not offered an option for Vodafone. Method 5 just doesn’t work. Method 6 see method 2. Method 7 all irrelevant. Not even a factory restore has cured my S5 of this infuriating problem. I’ll be switching to IPhone when my contract is up

  36. hi all gentles and ladies

  37. I’ve gotten the not registered on network on my Galaxy Note II. (I got the phone after my previous was no longer able to read my SD card and fried itself) I have been with T-mobile for five years and lived in two different states and have the same number (from a previous carrier) for at least 10 years. I called the T-mobile help line to help with the problem. They found that the closest cell tower to me (it’s right across the street) was not reading my cell phone. (We don’t have t-mobile towers in the area, they lease towers from AT&T and Verizon). Since most other towers in the area were allowing me to make/receive calls and texts, and that they found nothing wrong with my phone or SIM card they determined that the problem was on their end. They sent me a wireless router that would help increase my wi-fi calling in my home (so I can make calls while out in the yard etc) for free, (It’s between a $200 and $400 router depending on who you buy it from). Their only stipulation was if I stopped useing T-mobile as my carrier I send it back.

  44. If i attempt the option that says to scroll to extreme then update, will i lose all the contacts/pics/apps already on phone? My dad got a newer version and gave me his so id like to keep most of whats on there. It is easier to delete what i dont need rather than re-enter everything. We both have t-mobile, sep accounts. My old phone is a blackberry bold that my brother got for free when he used to work for t-mobile and all i had to do was pop in the sim. The only reason im switching phones is bc the blackberry constantly shuts down and loses all battery power after it took me all night to charge. Im beggining to think i am allergic to technology. Please help, it would be greatly appreciated.

  62. I recently purchased an unlocked Galaxy S3. I purchased it for overseas usage (Jamaica to be specific on the Digicel network). When I put any sim card from any other network, it finds service with no problems. The minute I put in the DigIcel sim card and try to go on roaming and find a network, It says emergency calls only and network not registered. Please help

    1. Good day Susan, i am familiar with that network because I’m from Jamaica as well.The phone just need a little Refresh. Try navigating to network settings, then hold the power button and the home button together until the phone reboot , read here for ,more info https://www.technobezz.com/insert-sim-card-access-network-services-fix-register-network/

      >dial *#*#4636#*#* in the dialer

      >You will be prompt with a testing menu

      >click phone/device information

      >Run ping test

      >The drop down list select : GSM Auto (PRL)

      >Click Turn off radio

      >Restart

      if these don’t work then reply, i will give more method

      1. Thanks for getting back to me. So I followed the instructions that you gave me with holding the home and power button and the phone does nothing but shut off. There is no blinking or rebooting. I don’t really need it to work here, I just want to be sure that when I take it to Jamaica, there won’t be a problem because I’m sure you know how expensive it will get to fix the issue down there. What else do you suggest?

  88. I bought a Samsung Galaxy S Duos GT-S7562 a little over a month ago. It worked fine until I ran out of minutes. When I refilled my monthly plan and tried to use my phone, I got a message saying “Not Registered On Network”. I spoke to someone from my provider and they told me service was current and that I should’t be receiving this message. They had me turn off and on my phone, and remove and replace my SIM card about 5 times and I get the same error message. Please help… Thank You.

    1. I own a Samsung Galaxy S Duos GT-S7562 and i can tell you that the SIM card is a problem with the phone.Many times you will not get SIM 1 or 2 to work. The way how i work around this is by swapping the Sim in different port. Placing sim 1 into sim 2 port. Also, Please move outside or a place where you can receive Proper signal.Many times the Frequency interfered with each other.

    2. I have the same model phone Samsung Galaxy S Duos GT-S7562. I had the same problem. What i did was to remove the sim card and put it in a lowerend 2g phone(Nokia or samsung preferable single sim phone). Restart the nokia phone at least 3 times and wait until the network comes ( may take 10 minutes or more) and then make a call to a known number. Now remove the sim card and put it in ur samsung phone. It will work just fine. Be sure that ur sim card mode in samsung phone is “GSM only”. 🙂 try it out….hv a grt day

    2. Hi, I have my Samsung Galaxy on7 pro giving “mobile network not available” most of the times. But suddenly when my phone got fully discharged one night, next day morning it started off with full signal of sim. 4g also worked for an hour or so. Then it failed. I could see when battery is low at times it gives signal, but not always. I have got it checked with Samsung center and they loaded the software, for no use. I have done factory reset as well not use. At times I get signal but could not make any calls, as it gets disconnected quickly. can you help me with this problem.
