LG G5 not connecting to data network unless I reboot

My G5 is about 3 months old. Last week it installed an LG software update. Since then, whenever my signal gets weak or lost (such as in the subway or a basement), it does not reconnect back to LTE once I have a strong signal again. Sometimes I will get a phone signal but not data, other times I will not even get a phone signal at all. Once I restart the phone, everything works fine again.

 

Toggling mobile data on and off does not work. Turning airplane mode on and off actually makes it worse (I lose signal entirely). Wifi connection is fine. 

 

I have tried resetting the network settings, no change. I then did a factory reset, no change.

 

This happens several times a day so it is very annoying having to always reboot my phone.

 

Does anyone have any advice, or will I need to replace my phone under warranty?

Hey @oldwolf888

 

Thank you for reaching out to us with these updates. You mentioned still experiencing some daily connection drops, have you communicated with LG about this?

Hey @oldwolf888

 

We haven't heard back regarding the phone connectivity. 

 

Were you able to get this resolved? 

 

If so, the Community would be happy to know how! Smiley

Hi,

 

The problem seems having been solved.

 

1. WIFI calling needs to be turned off. Otherwise the data connection can be lost at anytime.

2. VoLTE (Woice over LTE) needs to be turned on. Otherwise the data connection will be lost whenever a phone is made.

 

Hope the informaton help!

I had a similar situation. I desactivated volte and wireless calling but it did not help. I also factory reset and network reset.

 

My connection randomly stopped to work as described in this thread.

 

The only thing that seem to work is disabled LTE. Now I'm on 4g and seems stable. But it's not the service I'm paying for....

Re: LG G5 not connecting to data network unless I reboot

Hey @codingtony,

 

Based on oldwolf888 's findings, WiFi Calling needs to be turned OFF, while VoLTE needs to be ON

 

I noticed in your post that you had also deactivated VoLTE.

 

Can you turn it on and let us know if there's a difference?
