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

“Name: T-MobileAPN: epc.tmobile. com if you have an LTE Device, you should use: fast.tmobile. com
Proxy: <leave in=”” blank=””>

MMS protocol: WAP 2.0

MNC: 260

If you are using AT&T enter this

“Name: AT&TAPN: wap.cingular

MMS port: 80
MCC: 310
MNC: 410
Authentication type: <leave in=”” blank=””>
APN type: default,supl,mms OR Internet
APN Protocol: Leave it on the Default one”

 

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.

 

If this method did not work, please try this method –Insert SIM card to access network services fix not register on network

NB:If you hit the update from settings, and it says “NO FIRMWARE FOUND” you have to update via Kies on your computer.

 

Method 7

If your phone is locked, and you want to use it on another network, you must unlock it first. There are many unlocking service providers out there, but if you are looking for the most reliable one, then go for Unlock Authority.

The whole unlocking process is made simple and easy. Go to Unlock Authority, fill the form with needed info, and you will get the unlocking code to your email. Once you get the code, enter it and click unlock my phone. You will be able to use it will all GSM sim cards.

This is simple, reliable and safe. It will not damage your Android device and it will not void the warranty.
