Because of current issues with our Samsung M31, we are writing this post. Despite having a very strong network connection, the device was unable to make any calls. “Not registered on the network” was displayed repeatedly.
We attempted numerous troubleshooting techniques suggested by Samsung and online remedies to fix this, but none of them were successful. Even though we watched numerous YouTube videos in an effort to resolve the problem, all but one of them were identical and only differed in their metadata. The internet is filled with clickbait, and the big tech companies are doing nothing to stop it.
If you’ve encountered this, you already know that clickbait makes up more than 70% of online content. If someone from the Tech Giant platform is reading this, please update the search engine because if you don’t, AI will soon take over because the majority of websites on the internet are just collections of junk with copied text and phrases that have been altered to make them unrecognizable. They squander users’ time instead of assisting them in resolving the problem.
Now that we have arrived at the main topic of this post, how to resolve the Samsung “Not Registered on Network” issue, we will offer a very straightforward solution because we are aware of how frustrating it can be to search the internet for remedies without success.
Fix “Not Registered on Network” on any Samsung
Now, even though most online articles and videos offer the same remedy, trying to reset network settings won’t work. This issue cannot be resolved by the Android being reset to factory settings. Restarting the gadget has no effect either. The internet is merely a waste of time. They will only offer these three basic troubleshooting techniques, but they are almost never effective. What you need to do to resolve this problem is as follows:
Flash Stock ROM (Your Country)
Now that “Your Country” has been mentioned in the title, you may be asking why. Because they have a different area or country OS than your country’s, they are the main source of network problems on Samsung smartphones. The SIM will not function if you purchase a Samsung in India and use it for the first time outside of India. It will merely display the not registered on network error once more.
It is because Samsung uses and updates its phones based on their region or country, in contrast to the majority of Android phones now on the market. For each nation, there are various OS variations. It was designed in this manner because Samsung phones of the same model are less expensive in other countries, and retailers sell the same phone from one country to another at a low price, impacting the local market.
One further option to ensure that nobody has this problem is to insert the original SIM card from the country or area and make a 10-minute phone call. After that, it can be applied in any other nation. However, the majority of people looking for a fix for this problem are unable to do that, so we must use the Odin tool to flash the native stock ROM of our nations. On this website, we may find stock ROMs based on our respective nations.
We used the exact identical procedures to flash the original stock ROM that are already described on the website we previously cited. Nevertheless, we will still outline how to use the Odin tool to flash any Samsung device. This is a list of each stage.
- Get Odin: From a reliable source, get the Odin flashing program. The most recent version is advised.
- To extract Odin, download the zip file to your computer and extract it into a folder.
- Start your Samsung device in Download Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Volume Down, Bixby (if applicable), and Power buttons while it is off. To enter Download Mode when the warning screen shows, hit the Volume Up button.
- Connect your device to your computer: To link your Samsung gadget to your computer, use a USB cord. Your device should be recognized by Odin, and a “Added!” message should appear in the Odin window.
- Fill Odin with firmware files: Depending on the Odin version, choose the “AP” or “PDA” option and choose the firmware file with the.tar or.md5 extension.
- You can also choose the BL (Bootloader), CP (Modem), or CSC files if your firmware package contains them in the appropriate slots.
- Launch the flashing procedure: To start the flashing, click the “Start” button in Odin. Odin will begin flashing your device with the new firmware. This procedure can take a few minutes.
- Watch for completion: When the flashing procedure is finished, Odin will show a “PASS!” message, and your device will restart on its own. During this process, do not unplug your device.
Your device will reboot into the operating system automatically after the flashing procedure is finished. It will take roughly 5 minutes for the initial reboot. Reboot the device, set up your Android, and your SIM should now be functional. Take it to the mobile store if it still won’t work; depending on where you are, they can fix it for about $5.
