Two identical phones side by side one has a strong signal the other has no signal at all

why does phone get no signal works great on wifi

If they were at my house one would be on AT&T and the other on T-Mobile.

Can you provide some additional details? Same model phones? If so, what model? Same carrier (I’m assuming Republic on both)?

Make sure cellular is enabled but perhaps RW put one on Sprint and the other on T-Mobile. I would contact RW.

RE just puts it here for their “expert customers to answer”, I ask on social media, you get more response when the whole world can see it.
