richms: Ok, I just remembered that it was promised and I never got anything. I bought a S view wireless back, but the cheapo charging stand I have doesnt like it, cycles on and off all the time so the one that DSE should have given me would be useful.


Go back with your receipt and ask..?

Hi all,
I am having issues with random "loss of service" on my note 4. Often occurs when the phone is left locked with a strong signal and upon unlocking it shows no service. I then have to switch it back and forth between airplane mode/restart in order to resolve, however, even that doesn't always work. It also occurs across multiple locations in NZ. Have tried a sim replacement to no avail. Appears to have been occurring since I bought the phone 3 weeks ago and also happens irrespective of carrier (2d/spark). Google shows other similar unresolved cases worldwide. Has anyone here had any issues or have any thoughts on the matter?
Cheers
Ben

I've had a Note 4 (On Spark) since release and have never noticed anything similar.

Where did you get the phone from and have you made any modifications to it (Rooting, flashing a new ROM etc?)

Cheers - N

I have had mine once show emergancy calls only and not make voice calls, but it was still able to recieve a SMS verification code (which was why I picked the phone up to look at it) - so unless there is some mystery way that those can come thru data instead of a cell connection (wouldnt that be nice) then the phone was lying about emergancy calls only.

An airplane mode on and off sorted it out.

Looks like it's for the 910C. Hopefully the U variant isn't too far behind...

Thanks, and also for others if they haven't read it, I also understand that the Note 4 Lollipop update will be slower because the Note 4 kernel also powers the Samsung Gear VR (by Oculus Rift)... and they need to sign off on the update as well, which is a delay other Samsung models won't face.

So I'm looking at purchasing a note 4.....Do current owners still love it?  I've heard its the best big phone and I'm after something with an awesome camera.  MKBHD gave it good wraps in the smartphone awards, but im just a little wary of Touchwiz.  I had an S3, but then went to a Nexus, so thats my only real concern....

Would be keen to hear peoples thoughts.
