Last Updated: Jun 14, 2016

This article helps you troubleshoot data connectivity issues on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

You may have data connectivity issues if you're unable to:

  • Connect to the Internet
  • Browse websites
  • Send or receive multimedia messages
  • Load Internet content within applications
  • Send or receive email

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.

  1. Verify your Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 10.1 is connected to the Sprint network using Sprint Zone.

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

    1. Access Sprint Zone.
    2. Scroll to and tap Help.
    3. Tap My Device.
    4. Your connection status displays below Wireless & Networks.
    5. Tap the Back key.
    6. Scroll to and tap Update Profile.
    7. Test your device to see if the issue is resolved.
  2. Perform a soft reset.

    A soft reset reconnects your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to the Sprint network.

    1. From the home screen, press and hold the Power key.
    2. Release the Power key when the screen turns off.
    3. Your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will restart.
    4. Test your device to see if the issue is resolved.
  3. 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 Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 may decrease the signal strength.

    Connecting to a Wi-Fi network may also improve battery life.

Note: To optimize device performance, be sure your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is running the most recent device software. Check for software updates.
