That is the amount of how much the smart devices are into the lives of the generation currently living in this world. So as the smart phone has become one essential factor, there is another element which the smart phones need to access the whole world: the mobile data or a wifi connection.

We all connect our phones to a wifi connection when we are home, but when we go out we use the mobile data. Sometimes using a cellular data can cause a few problems and suddenly stops working without any issues at all. What actually do you do when your mobile data stops working suddenly? You retry and try doing so many things until you get the connection back. But most of the time we won’t be able to find out what actually has happened for the connection to stop working. There can actually be a lot of manual reasons for this cause. So let’s focus on those reasons and see how to fix the cellular data not working problem on your android smart phone.

Fix Cellular Data Not Working Issue

Restarting the phone

Mobile data not working error can normally cause in new android phones. As when you insert a new sim card, the sim operator automatically sends the APN settings which might ask for the restart. When we skip or ignore the message and doesn’t restart the phone, we might later get such data problems. So restarting the phone will solve such problems if this is the cause.

Check on the mobile data limit

In the android smart phones, we have the option to set a limit to the data usage to save excess data wastage. So in case if you have a limit set to your data usage, then the mobile will automatically stop the data from working when your limit finishes.

So check on the limit that has been given to the phone settings by moving onto ‘settings’ and then ‘mobile data/ data usage’ and remove the data limit if its enabled or increase the limit.

Turn on Airplane mode

If it’s a small server problem, then turning on the ‘airplane mode’ in your mobile for sometimes and then turning it off can help correct the problem. This will help your mobile from disconnecting from the mobile network server for sometimes and then connect back from the beginning from the servers.

Reinsert your sim card

In case if the above methods did not help you connect back to your mobile data, then it’s better to try removing your sim card and the reinserting it again. As reinserting the sim can actually solve many problems related to the sim card including incorrect APN issues. So remove the sim and wait for around 30-40 seconds and then insert the sim and turn on your mobile. This will correct all the settings and connect you to the internet.

Resetting the APN’s of the network

‘Access Points Name’ known as APN is a mode that the telecom operator connects the android to the mobile network. So any changes done to the APN can cause your internet connection to drop or stop working by losing the connection. So resetting the APN can solve the problem of cellular data not connecting.

Switch the network generations

If your phone data stopped working after updating your android, then the reason can be that before the update your phone might have had a lower coverage network. So updating to the right coverage network afterwards can make it work. For example from 3G to 4G. to change this, go to the ‘setting’ > ‘mobile data’ > ‘network mode’ and select the right network mode out from the options.

Finally factory reset 

In case if any of t eh above didn’t work, you have to finally try the factory reset option. But know that accomplishing factory reset can delete off all the data from your phone’s internal completely. So make sure to backup all the important data from your phone before you proceed with the factory reset option.

That’s it, now we have seen a few steps on how we can fix the mobile data not working on android suddenly problem. These steps will definitely give you a solution and get back your connection to you. Hope this was helpful for all of you to fix the problem in your android smart phone.

These are weak power sources which will slow down the process of the charging. Along with that wireless charger will also charger the battery in a very slow process.
So it is always advisable to charge your phone battery using the dedicated charger, which will do its works in a better way. Charge in other devices only when you are in an utter need and you don’t have your original charger around you.

Background apps running continuously

We will have a lot of apps installed in our phones and most of these apps such as the social media app and other similar apps will always run on the background and this will consume a lot of battery life. So it is always better to turn off the background apps from running when you plug your phone to charge. As it might take a lot of time to charge along with all the apps that might keep killing the battery life.

Using bad charger or universal charging adapter

If you are using a universal charging adapter to charge your phone in a regular basis then that can harm your battery charging process and slow it down. As universal charging adapters are kept for emergency purposes and not for a daily usage. Always use an original charger, as local chargers or bad ones can harm your battery eventually. If you have lost or broken your original charger, buy one from the same company, as that is what will keep your battery healthy and charge faster.

Using a bad battery

If your battery charging process has slow down eventually, you have to also check for your battery and make sure if it is in a good condition. If your phone is new and still the battery takes longer time than usual to charge then that means that you have got a bad battery. Make sure you figure it out before late.

Using your phone when charging

We all have that behavior of using our phones even when it is on charge, as we can’t spare a moment without it. But this is one of the very bad act as it may slow down the process of charging and ruin the battery slowly, not only that it is a risky task too. So it is always advisable not to use the phones while it is on charge for a better and a faster process of charging.

WiFi/ Bluetooth/ mobile data turned on

Make sure you turn off the wifi, Bluetooth and the mobile data when you plug in your phone to charge, as this might slow down the battery charging process. As all these services consumes a lot of battery when it is running. So turn of all of them including the GPS to make your phone charge faster.

Damage in USB port

There can be time when you have tried and done all the above possible things to make your phone charge faster and still it is slow in charging then mostly your USB port should be damaged. So try repairing it and get a better charge in a quick time.

So that’s it, we have checked on some of reasons which will eventually slow down the battery charging process in your android smart phone. So check them up and solve the slow battery charging problem. You can also try switching off the phone when you plug the phone to charge to verify things out. Hope this would have help you out.
