For the most part, our phones work most of the time and we rarely run into issues where we might have to return it and ask for a replacement. But unfortunately, bad things and weird things do happen from time to time for all sorts of reasons.
It could be due to malware, a bug in the operating system, system files getting messed up and corrupted, hardware problems, and more. Sometimes these things can be easily fixed with a reset, so if you are finding yourself having connectivity issues with your Samsung Galaxy S22, like Bluetooth headphones or speakers that won’t pair properly, you’re dropping WiFi or cellular connectivity, then it might be time to reset the phone’s network settings.
Thankfully, like we said, the process is very simple and straightforward and it won’t take you more than a couple of minutes, so here’s how.
Reset Samsung Galaxy S22 network settings
- Launch the Settings app on your Galaxy S22
- Scroll down and tap on General Management
- Scroll down again and tap on Reset
- Tap Reset network settings
- You might be asked to enter your phone’s PIN or passcode
- Tap Reset again to confirm
This will take a couple of seconds or a minute to complete, so just be patient and it will be done in no time. Keep in mind that resetting the network settings does not wipe your phone and erase its contents. That would be a factory reset, so make sure that you choose “Reset network settings” when going through the steps.
Sometimes a network reset might not be enough, which is where a factory reset comes in, but that’s usually a last resort measure, so maybe give this a try first before you wipe your phone.
