How To Fix “MOBILE NETWORK NOT AVAILABLE” error in Android

I  got a question from the technobezz topics about a network issue on the Samsung Galaxy Note . The person says:

MY SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE , ON DIALING I GET “MOBILE NETWORK NOT AVAILABLE”
CHECKING THE IMEI NUMBER IT SAYS, “THE IMEI NUMBER MIGHT BE CORRECT”

And selected network unavailable on Android.

 

This issue may not be a nulled or an invalid IMEI # problem because the IMEI number is incorrect. If you have a nulled IMEI number and need to fix not registered on a network, read:
