    I have no wifi issues, but data issues popped up again. I bought a brand new s7 edge and it wouldnt hold a data connection. So i took it back and got another brand new s7 edge. Same issue. I was just about to return it, when it just started working fine. Now after. 5 months, the problem returned. When i take the phone off my charger in the morning, and at random times during the day, ive got to reboot to get data to connect. Ive been to Verizon and all setups are correct, we tried a new sim card, abd i did a factory reset. Nothing helped. I'll see if it clears in a couple of weeks. It isnt a reception location issue, because I've also got a galaxy s6 edge, and lgv10 and no issues with either. My s7 edge is the snapdragon varient.

    Hi, we're in the same boat. I bought the s7 edge outright, and when I went to replace it, Verizon wanted to give me a rephurb. I told them thst tgey should be replacing it under warranty. Anyway I sokd it to an electronic repair shop, bought another new one, and had the same problem. I've also git an s6 edge, and lg v10. No issues with either. I learned 2 lessons. 1- I'll buy my phones from a thurd party since theres no incentive to buy from Verizon, and 2 - I'm changing my 5 lines 1 at a time asap. I've been a verizon customer since 1992 and thats the thanks I get.

    16 years with full size sims on virgin in S3 mini's and before that old tech. Nokia's. Always got a signal that could be used for text and calls on both phones. Bought one dual sim S7 edge, changed from full size to nano sims - same numbers, same provider - haven't got useable signal at home since or at work either (fairly on the edge of a town/countryside. if it wasn't for the fact that is a gorgeous phone and I use wifi a lot I'd ditch it, but I am missing loads of calls and messages. :-(

    Is it possible this issue is for UNLOCKED S7s?

    I purch my S7 from BestBuy UNLOCKED and have terrible reception issues with AT&T.
    Signal db is usually 10-20db worse than phone right next to it.

    If this were a S7-wide issue, there would be a lot more complaining on the internet about this issue.
    Wondering if those having this issue also have unlocked phones and which carrier..

    In case it is of use to anyone, about 48 hours ago my phone took a big Android update (it had been updated as far as possible prior to that). Since that update, I've had 3-4 bars showing on both SIMS in both of the two areas where I had previously had problems. It seems like the android update has fixed the reception issue strange though that sounds. If anyone has a phone that didn't update around 48 hours ago it might worth checking and doing any updates that are outstanding manually - it might fix your reception issues too.

    cpyles42 - mine is unlocked and purchased from the far east as far as I could tell from the packaging it arrived in. The phone was also a dual sim affair and I had been having trouble with the reception to both sims. As you will see below, an Android update that arrived in the pipeline recently has sorted mine out. NB. Thinking about it, the Android update that did the fixing might have come available last week as I was on a camp site with ropey reception and didn't download it until I got back home to my own wifi system just to be on the safe side of things to do the update. It might be worth trying the update if you have it available yourself. My system now shows Android version 6.0.1; Kernel version 3.18.14-8888212 from 9th August 2016, security patch level date 1st August 2016 (that might all mean more to some of you than to me!!). I cannot believe how much the reception is improved - it's like someone has waved a magic wand.

    With 4g enabled in many countries where the 4g signal is weak it shows 1-2 bars. Just switch to 3g only and it will have 5 full bars. This explains why inferior phones with no 4g network show better signal strength.

    Peace

    My S7 Edge always had great reception, and then it broke and the replacement they sent me can't get more than two bars and my calls cut off. I can't even text pictures most of the time. This is awful.
