Starting from 2 days ago, my unlocked LG G6 which I brought over from T-Mobile wouldn't connect to the cricket network.
I had just switched and everything was fine with LTE and for 3 weeks. But then suddenly I couldn't connect at all. Wasn't getting any bars, it just kept doing the search icon. I restarted the phone numerous times and checked the simcard too; but nothing.
Then on a hint from the web, I read to try changing the network settings in the phone from "Auto LTE/3G/2G" to "Auto 3G/2G". Then it worked! The icon stopped spinning and I got bars, and the small pop up said I was now registered to network.
I thought that maybe fixed everything so I went back into settings and changed it back to the original "Auto LTE/3G/2G", but the exact problem of no bars not connecting to a network happened again. Obviously, I need to be able to make calls and receive texts so I had to switch it back to "Auto 3G/2G" so that my phone would work. But is anyone here knowledgeable enough to me why LTE isn't working on my G6 anymore?
Thanks in advance
@daevidy when was the last time you did an update on the phone? Was there any provisioning issues with the SIM?
I know I did not do a update recently; so that wasn't the cause of the outage.
I can't remember the last time I did an update actually.
and there were no provisioning issues with the SIM. I popped it in, agreed to the text message to automatically have my APN setup and everything worked fine. And I was getting LTE fine for several weeks prior to the outage. (I also edited the APN settings according to the cricket site:
