New firmware updates usually bring new, positive changes on your Samsung Galaxy S9. But the malfunctioning of the LTE is certainly not one of those much-coveted results. Still, we’ve got quite a few complaints from our readers on this topic, so we’re here to show you what to do when the LTE is no longer available after an update of the Galaxy S9 operating system. If this is this case for you and no LTE after update of Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus, read the directions below.
You can either try to wipe the cache or to reset the network setting. But whatever you start with, don’t overlook the fact that you must restart the device in the end. None of these two options will cause important loss of data. If the cache in itself is the type of memory that stores temporary files and it can rebuild on its own without a problem, resetting the network settings might require that you retype a few passwords afterward.
In any case, performing a wipe cache partition is the first thing you should try. This is a common troubleshooting option and it will make your smartphone move a little smoother, if not fixing the LTE problem. And, just like suggested above, in case it doesn’t work, you can reset your network settings as follows:
- Go to Settings;
- Open the Backup & Restore center;
- Scroll down to the Reset Network Settings entry and select it;
- Finally, restart the device for the changes to take place.
When the Samsung Galaxy S9 turns back on, you can try to use the LTE. Particular options, like the Wi-Fi or the Bluetooth, will most likely ask you to re-enter the connectivity details. But that’s certainly a small price to pay if you really want to enjoy the LTE connectivity once again.
Hopefully, these two options have helped you to fix the problem that occurred right after the firmware update. In the unfortunate event that the device is manifesting the same Galaxy S9 no LTE available after update problem, ask for professional help!
