Samsung Galaxy S3 problems with internet are one of the most common issues owners are facing almost every day. It is because there are a lot of factors that may affect the device’s ability to connect to a network; may it be a mobile data network or a Wi-Fi hotspot. While the Galaxy S3 is one of the most powerful smartphones in the market today, it is not free from errors and problems. In fact, there have already been so many reported problems reported since it was released last year.
Problems With Mobile Data NetworkFor users who subscribed to unlimited mobile data usage, the Galaxy S3 problems with internet are a nightmare. Fortunately, these users can get all the support they need from their carriers or providers. Majority of owners who reported they have problems connecting to the internet rely on mobile data networks. The fact is, there are a larger percentage of owners using 3G or 4G because majority of carriers have bundled the device with their unlimited plans.
Users who are experiencing this problem should first check if their phones are receiving signal. If so, the settings should be checked to see if they’re correct. If they don’t know the correct setting, they need to call their carriers to ask for it. But while this problem could become complicated especially for those who are not tech savvy, often times a reboot can make things work again.
Problems With Wi-FiThere could be many factors affecting the Galaxy S3′s capability to connect to a Wi-Fi network and that’s what users have to find out in order to fix this problem. The thing about Wi-Fi is that the problem may be traced back to the ISP or to the router, although there is also a greater possibility it’s with the phone.
First, users have to let their phone forget the network it’s trying to connect then let it be detected again and reconnect. More often, problems like this can be solved by this simply step; however, if it persists and the network is fine, a Factory Reset might be needed to solve the problem.
