    Default New Galaxy S5 dropping cell network

    So I am hoping someone has a solution to this.

    Got my S5 1.5 months ago and went to europe for 2.5 weeks halfway through that time. When I get back the phone started dropping my service provider cell/data network every 10-20 minutes lasting roughly 20-60 secs. Pull down tab shows Emergency Calls Only when it does this. I have been to Bell numerous times and had the SIM card switched out twice to no avail. I then went to a Samsung repair centre and they told me that they had to ship it off to somewhere that could properly work on it. So I shipped it off and just got it back today and the damn thing is still doing it! Frustrating to say the least. Anyone had this problem? Solutions? It seems if I am talking to someone it wont drop the call.... have talked for 30+ minutes and had no problem

    Thanks.

    Welcome to Android Central
    I've seen quite a few posts with people having similar issues. If it persisted after sending back for repair, I'd call back and ask for a replacement.

    Not that I know of. This phone has had more issues so far than they did with the GS4. Shame, really
