Issue: Receiving basic network signals. Calls/text + 4G
Length of Time: Noticeable since April 2020
Phone: #Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 4G (SM-N975/DS)
I'm having sporadic signal reception, to the point of the phone being almost unusable. I've used Sky Mobile and now using Virgin Mobile, both which piggyback off the O2 network.
Signal status of the TW12 area states reception is available and service good. Last year there were issues with network masts that required months before they were repaired and believed that to be the cause of the issue, as my Note 10+ 4G was receiving decent signal.
I've read some model's of this phone that they were released with faulty antenna's, or their ability to receive signal reduced in order to preserve the battery from overheating.
Things I've tried to rectify/observe:
At times I may have 3 bars of signal reception, but a message will display on the top screen "Unable to find a network"/"Emergency calls only", or 4G symbol is displayed but can not get internet.

Does anyone have any experience of this, or other solutions they've tried?
Thanks in advance.
Have purchased the 22 Ultra model with exchange program directly from Samsung. No device issues so far, happy with purchase. However I would of been more than contempt with my Note 10+ if it didnt have the unfixable antenna issues.
Good luck with that, the s22 ultra suffers just as badly. I have a note 10 plus and it is much better so much so that I'm selling my s22 ultra. Samsung in my country can't even bother to get back to me about returning the phone
OHEEEMMMGEEE I have the same issue! Came here in hopes to find a solution & now I'm even more disappointed. I love this phone other than the obvious, obviously. When I'm at home I get no signal whatsoever! I have to rely on wifi & a darn textnow #, which I hate having to use. Ugh!
