    Default My S4 seems to fall asleep in the car ... why?

    Loving my S4 until a couple of weeks back...

    Situation: Driving in my car & my S4 is connected via bluetooth. Usually after 20mins or so of not using my S4 I notice that the reception signal is showing no bars. Haven't had a full service disconnect, just no bars anymore. As if the phone has just quietly fallen asleep. If someone calls, they go straight to my voice mail and will get a "missed call" message bit later.
    => Now the funny thing: When I just press the power button, the signal bars will instantly go back from no bars to full bars !

    I'm pretty sure it's not a network issue cause didn't have it until couple of weeks back.
    It's not a car bluetooth issue cause have had it with my S4 laying around different places in the car
    Phone's running Android 4.4.2 and it's not happening (yet) when not using bluetooth.

    Anyone has any other ideas?

    Thanks
    Tim

    Hm... Well did you update OTA? Also what carrier do you have?

    Am on the latest OTA. Am on a big carrier over here in Belgium. Am sure it's not a coverage thing
