Entire family is using Moto E(4) for phones. Each of us has talk/text plus 1GB/mo of data.
So, we just drove from our home market (Denver) to Des Moines, IA and I am seeing inconsistent behavior between our phones. Between Denver and Des Moines is mostly desolate, so not a big surprise we had spotty (data) coverage a lot of the way. But now that we are in Des Moines, my wife’s and my daughters phones are happily back on the LTE network - full talk, text, and data with solid signal strength - whereas my phone is essentially a brick! It claims to not be able to find the cellular network at all and advises me to find a WiFi network. At our hotel, that’s easy…when we are out and about, less so!
I’ve rebooted a couple times and also checked for system updates. The only real difference I can think of is that, during the road trip, I briefly put my phone in airplane mode as my battery was getting very low and I was suspicious that what was draining it might be my phone desperately searching for towers. And, yes, the phone is now off airplane mode!
Any advice on what I could do to get my phone “seeing” the same towers as my wife and daughters phones do?
