Method 2:

If your device is outdated or old, then it might be possible that the battery of that device is causing network problem, because the network  signals are powered by the phone’s battery and if there is no juice left for that network signal reception, then it would be easy to just change the battery with a new one and it might solve the issue.  If you still have that problem, check out the next method and it might help you.

Method 3:

If the above methods didn’t work out well, then this method may solve the issue.    The mobile network is due to hardware used in the device, but it is not clearly dependent on the hardware only.

One of the best methods to resolve this issue is to wipe the whole device or in simple words “Factory Reset” on your device.

After back-up is done you can easily restore to the previous state after the “factory reset”.
