How to Fix “Not Registered on Network” Error on Android Phone

Solution #1: Do it manually

First, let’s try manually. Before we do that choose your network mode as “WCDMA only” first and then restart your phone. After restarting the phone follow the following path.

Settings → Wireless and Networks → Mobile Network → Network Operator and after finishing the search select your mobile network operator.

Solution #2: Check your SIM card

Another reason for getting such error is that your SIM card may not be inserted properly, so it is always good to remove our SIM and insert it again and after trusting that it has been inserted perfectly, start your phone again.

Solution #3: Reboot your network

Try this path: Settings → Wireless and Networks → Mobile Networks and then press the power and home buttons together for 15 seconds continuously. What this will do is that your smartphone will blink and you will see a black screen and then it will automatically reboot itself.
