Re: Samsung Galaxy J7 Refine Unable To Receive Text Or Calls When WiFi Is On

You people at boost know there is a problem with this j7 refine phone, but I am stuck with a $150 phone that doesn't work right. I'm having similar issues with a j7 refine from boost mobile and boost mobile claims the phone is the problem. Ive had it serviced by samsung twice now and still have the same problem. I won't get messages or cell service even though I'm in a strong area. I have to switch mobile network modes. Turning Airplane mode on and off doesn't work. Have any of you had your problem fixed yet? A quick check of the internet and you will find lots more people having similar issues.

Hi there, Joshrobert69! Please go into your settings and make sure that any "Data Saving" or "Data limit" options are turned Off. Let us know if the issue persists after that.

Good luck Josh, both Boost and Samsung are fully aware of the problem and will not fix anything, even after sending the phone to Samsung twice. I have to toggle airplane mode now on my j7 every time I leave home to get it to connect to cell data. Part of the problem seems to be the Boost/Sprint network by my house which is pathetic. I have the most trouble in my neighborhood where the signal strength is too low for this pathetic phone to work right.
If you can still return it, return it now or you'll be stuck with a piece of junk for a long time. They had me do all these fixes until it was too late to return it so I've been stuck with it for months.
