Occasionally you get the error message "Not registered on the network" on Android. This means that your cell phone could not connect to the cellular network. You can then neither make phone calls nor surf the Internet via the network. To find out how to find the cause of this problem and how to fix it, see this article.

"Not registered on the network": You should check that

  • A small reset often helps: Switch the flight mode of your smartphone on and off again after about 30 seconds. Your device will now try again to connect to the network. If the error message appears again, switch your smartphone off and on again. The problem may have been resolved by then.
  • Test the SIM card : Take the SIM card out of your smartphone and reinsert it. If the problem persists, try the SIM card in another cell phone. If the problem does not occur there, the problem is with your mobile phone. Otherwise it is due to the SIM card or the network. In this case, contact your mobile network provider.
  • As soon as you have a WLAN connection : First check whether there is a general malfunction with your cellular provider. You can find this out, for example, on the portal https: //allestören.de or on the website of your provider. Also see if there is an update for your Android version. If so, do it.
