These steps help identify and resolve the underlying cause. After completing each step, test to see if the issue is fixed. If not, continue to the next step.

Be sure mobile data is enabled. Some features and applications require a data connection to work properly.

- Temporary solution: Connect to a Wi-Fi network.
You can connect to a Wi-Fi network as a temporary solution.
Note: Most Wi-Fi networks have a range of less than 100 feet indoors and up to 300 feet outdoors. Objects between the router and your Motorola PHOTON 4G may decrease the signal strength.
Connecting to a Wi-Fi network may also improve battery life.
