Issue#2754: Unlocked AT&T Galaxy S5 Data Issues

  • I've been having some problems with other aspects of my service (BingeOn & massive data usage) for several months now. Concerned that one reason for the issues was the age of my S4, I purchased a new unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5. And here's what's happening.

     

    1. It connects to the network and I can make/receive calls and texts just fine. I can surf the web on the device itself (although sometimes it's super slow and video buffers) but when I attempt to tether or use my hotspot, which is a feature that I use daily, webpages take minutes to load (and sometimes don't load at all) and video streaming is pretty much impossible.

     

    2. In an area where I've always had a great signal and full bars on my other device, I can't get more than 2 bars now and sometimes service drops completely for a second or two before coming back up. The 4G LTE icon shows up on my screen, but I'm far from experiencing 4G speeds. If I remove the SIM card, it shows full bars even though I know I have no service without the card...but the second I put the card back in, 2 bars if I'm lucky and back to not being able to load anything.

     

    3. Everything works fine if I connect to wifi.

     

    4. I've checked for band compatibility. I've checked the generic TMobile settings in the device. I've gotten a new updated SIM card. All of these possible issues have been checked off. And the problem persists. Sometimes, when I'm in the car or at a location away from home, I have full bars. But...I always had full bars at home on my other device and I live in a spot where I can actually see a cell tower from my kitchen window so I don't understand why my signal is like it is.

     

    Is there some setting or something that I'm missing here?

  • Issue#861: Samsung Galaxy S6: How Can I Remove Data, Even Though it Won't Turn On?

    Hello all, I dropped my S6 in water yesterday. I went through the full evaporation and drying process, and today tried to turn it back on. It will show the title screen, but when it goes to boot the OS it crashes and starts over. I can access the repair menu, and it seems a factory restore would solve my issues, but I have some pictures, videos, and notes on the phone that are invaluable to me and I don't want to lose. There must be some way to transfer some of that data to my computer from the repair screen. Honestly, I would even be opposed to tearing the phone apart if it meant I could keep my files. I'm really looking for any kind of tips I can get here. Thank you very much.

    Hello everyone, I made the leap from Verizon to T-Mobile with my Verizon edition Samsung Galaxy S4 (not know the SMS issues).  In store, the T-Mobile folks handed me a SIM card and said I that I needed to call Verizon to unlock my phone.  So, I called Verizon and they said that phones haven't been locked since February of 2015.  Strike 1! Ok.  So I put the T-Mobile SIM card in.  I found the following problems: 1) No Mobile Data connection2) "SIM card is not from Verizon..." message,3) unable to send SMS and MMS texts.4) No access to VoiceMail 1) To fix the Mobile Data Connection, I Googled "T-Mobile APN settings".  This led me to several sites that helped me fix that issue.

    After having attempted to get the Enterprise Gateway working, I hit an error which I posted about here DM_GWPipeline_Gateway_ImpersonationError. Having no success with the Enterprise Gateway, I then installed the Personal Gateway.

However, when I then set up a scheduled data refresh, the scheduled refresh fails only returning the following error: "Processing Error: transfer service unknown error"   Has anyone encountered this before? Is there anyway to reveal a more descriptive error?

  • Issue#16081: Issues in sending data in spi

    Hello,I have connected 2 zynq 7000(Zedboard) through PS SPI communication. I can do the data transfer between the two of them properly. But I have following doubts:1. How to calculate the spi data rate ? What I am doing right now is - I saw the actual frequency for the ps spi as 160Mhz while enabling the spi module in the vivado section, and then divide it by prescaler. For example, if the prescaler was XSPIPS_CLK_PRESCALE_64, then I divided 160Mhz/64 = 2.5Mbits/ sec, is this the correct way to calculate ? If no, can anyone please tell the precise method to calculate the data rate. 2. One zedboard(Zynq7000) is master and other is slave,slave sends the data and master receives it. The data transfer is happening in the polled transfer fashion. When a clock of XSPIPS_CLK_PRESCALE_64 or XSPIPS_CLK_PRESCALE_16 is selected, the data flows properly. But when I select clock as XSPIPS_CLK_PRESCALE_4 or XSPIPS_CLK_PRESCALE_8, the data is not properly received. The same data byte is received twic

  • Issue#29629: Samsung Galaxy S4: How can I replace both antennas and fix data signal?

    I have a galaxy s4 i545. The data signal drops all the time. I thought it could be a kit kat software issue at first, but its not. The phone is now updated to lollipop and the same thing happens. I can only reset the phone to get a data signal back. Also the 4g connection is slower than the 3g connection most of the time. It can never stay on 4g, when it does the phone gets hot. It always switches back to 3g and then the data works again. I took the phone apart and saw that the left red antenna is missing the connector on the end of the flex cable. Its just an open end wire kind of touching where it should be connected. I ordered a new left and right antenna flex cable. Is it just connecting each end? Are there any other steps or factors to consider to fix this problem? I don't see answers for this kind of repair anywhere on the internet. Please help. ⟐ Answered January 29, 2016 at 6:38 pm -0700
