    Ever since the "pie" update, my s8+ will notify me to search for a mobile network whenever I don't have a signal. Massively annoying. I can't turn it off. Nothing like a notification going off every 5 seconds and interrupting typing, or a video.

    Welcome to Android Central! Is this a notification in your status bar, or a toast notification that pops up in the middle of the screen?

    This is a pop up from the bottom. It's to the point where I'm considering switching phones.

    If I'm in an area where my mobile signal is in and out, and I'm guessing my phone is attempting to reconnect, that pop up is anywhere from every few seconds to every minute. Depending on the attempts by my phone.

    I've tried selecting the manual option, but that hasn't fixed it. And this is definitely post update.

    The exact message is.. "search for available network?" scree wide and about an inch tall.

    Gives me an option to cancel, or ok

    You've probably already looked, but what options do you have in the Settings>Mobile Networks menu? If there's an Advanced section, see if there's something there about automatically connecting.
    Also, do you know if it's prompting you to search for an available wi-fi network or cell network?

    It's definitely for the mobile network. The only choices I have in my connections, are select automatically or manually. I've tried selecting manual, and connecting to my home mobile network. It connects, but Still the same problem later.

    Sorry, I just want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly, because when you say your "home mobile network," that sounds like your wi-fi. Your mobile data is from your cell carrier, and there should just be that carrier for you (unless you have a dual SIM phone).

    Has nothing it do with WiFi. This is all related to my carrier network. My WiFi is just fine.

    Have you already tried a cache partition wipe? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-34311.

    Also, look for a Reset Network Settings option in the Setttings>Mobile Networks menu and see if that does anything.

    This problem just came up for my wife (Galaxy S9+ Pie update). Any more information? Also, did anyone else start experiencing this problem after playing the new Harry Potter Wizards Unite game?

    If you're with a carrier that has a weak signal where you need your phone to work, that's your fault - you chose the wrong carrier. Choose one that has a good signal where you need service. (That's the first thing to decide - who has service where you need service? Not the phone, not the plans, not the name of the carrier - coverage. Once you've determined that, you make the rest of the decisions.)
