S6 Edge Issues

Hello,

So this past week I've been having problems with my s6 edge.

1) I'm like 1 minute into my call with someone and the call would drop.
2) It usually takes me 2-3 tries before I can dial out.
3) For 2 days, I wasn't able to receive any calls or texts. I called Fido, was told it may be that my SIM was damaged. I went and got a new one but still, at times no calls can go through (texted it with a different phone)
4) LTE rarely works.. Constantly on 4G and I can assure you that before this whole problem, LTE was always working.

I have updated to the latest update.. And honestly, racking my brain due to this phone and Fido.

Help, anyone? Since I called last time and was told they really didn't know what the issue was........

Hey Mm12345 and welcome to the Community.


Are you having the same issues when your LTE is off?

 

@1234Com: Anyone with a Samsung Galaxy Edge has suggestions to help witht his?

Re: S6 Edge Issues

Did you do any modifications to the phone or is it still stock? Did you try a factory rest to see if it fix the problem?

Zero modifications to it... I'm not tech savvy so modifications of any kind lose me haha..

Honestly, factory reset is the last move I'd like to make.

I've spoken to two other friends on the Fido & Rogers network and I've been told it's a network problem... But seems like other than the two of them and I, no one else is having such a problem..

Re: S6 Edge Issues

I would recommend doing the factory reset you can backup the phone using smart switch.

 

If you know anyone else with a s6 that is not having issues try borrowing it and put your sim in and see if you still experience the same problem. If you don't then it could be hardware problems.

Re: S6 Edge Issues

Hmm.. I did a factory reset last night and unfortunately am still experiencing the same problems..

I was told by a friend that works at a mobile shop that Fido / Rogers are upgrading their cell towers..? Can anyone confirm? Seems like only I'm having these issues lol. Might have to leave Fido cause dropped calls and whatnot aren't fun.. Sad

We definitely wouldn't want to see you go @Mm12345!

Can you let us know if this happens everywhere or only in specific areas?

I just want to verify, if you see '4G' on your phone, it doesn't mean LTE is turned off. 

You need go to Settings -> More Networks -> Mobile networks -> Network Mode , and please change it to "GSM/HSPA auto" instead of "GSM/HSPA/LTE auto" in order to turn off LTE completely.

Re: S6 Edge Issues

Hi there @FidoAlyson, it happens pretty much everywhere. I'd have a strong connection to the Internet for like a minute and then it'd die completely.. Then after a bit more, go back to normal. Or if I'm in the middle of a call, a few minutes in and it'd drop. Then I'd have to dial back a few more times before the call connects again... Never used to happen before.

@AdamBeast, yes I know. I went to the Fido store and the lady there had switched my Network mode, but the issues still occurred.
