    So I’ve had the same problems for a while and came across a break through. So what you wanna do is go into your setting and go into the mobile network settings. In there is the option Access Point Names. Check that because my APN WAS ON another APN. I’m on AT&T. So APN should be on ATT Nextgenphone for AT&T users. Hope it helps
