    • Select the proper APN. Go to Settings > More networks > Mobile networks > Access point names and make sure you have your Carrier selected (For all APN settings to create one click here).
  • If you are still not getting any internet from your data connection, try enabling and disabling the airplane mode. Just press and hold the power key and select Airplane mode to activate/deactivate it. Make sure that is deactivated before you try checking if the mobile data issues have been fixed already. 

If none of the present solutions is able to fix the problem, you can clear cache partition on your phone. Performing this procedure will clear old cached files or information that’s stored on your phone’s system. They might have gone erratic and causes relevant symptoms to occur.

Just turn off your device completely. Then press and hold the Volume Up key, Home button and Power button at the same time. If you feel a vibration, release the Power Button while keeping on pressing the Volume Up and Home Key. When the Android system recovery screen appears, release the Volume Up and Home keys.
