    Samsung galaxy j3 2016, Android 5.1.1

    The phone has good or very good signal for some time (less than an hour), then the barred circle "no service" appears and stays that way for 1 to 15 minutes.

    This even happens without a SIM card, "emergency calls only" is replaced by "no service".

    The only software fix that works somewhat is selecting a Manual Operator; that way, the "no service" time is only 1 to 2 minutes (so far).

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you in an area with poor reception? Ask others who use the same carrier if they also have poor service in the area.
