Solution – Not registered on network error message on Android Phones

Posted in: Gadgets , 5 Comments

There are several reasons for error message “Not registered on network” when you try to make any call on your Android phone like Samsung Galaxy series (including Galaxy Tab) etc.

I recently faced similar problem on my Samsung Galaxy Tab with a new SIM. For me solution was to disable 3G on my phone.
If you are getting similar error message when you try to make any call (audio / video), following may solve your problem:

  • Your SIM card may not be functional / activated. Try another working SIM.
  • You have enabled 3G on your phone, but your SIM card do not have 3G activated. Just disable 3G on your phone and try again.
  • Restart your phone.

If nothing works, you can reset your phone to factory default or take your phone to service center.

    NONE of these solutions are working for me. I reset factory settings, I took it to a repair place TWICE, took it to my service provider TWICE, and oddly enough, the last time I took it to my service provider it was magically working JUST FINE. Then as soon as I got about 20 blocks away it just quit on me. Will not make or receive calls (“not registered on network”), will not connect to my service provider when I do a search (“your SIM card does not allow a connection to this network”) It’s been doing this since I got it unlocked. (Samsung Galaxy S 4G) I would think that it’s something to do with unlocking but I’ve tried someone else’s SIM card (Rogers, I’m currently trying to use MTS) and I could make calls just fine (couldn’t try the data usage because theirs wasn’t set up with a data plan) Help?
