    Been having an odd issue with my Samsung Galaxy A03s for the last couple of weeks. The problem only occurs after the phone hasn't been used for how ever long I'm asleep for, roughly 7 to 9 hours. I awake to the phone unable to make calls receiving the message "Phone not registered network only emergency calls". Any texts fail when trying to send. A simple restart fixes the issue. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Welcome to Android Central! Have you spoken to your carrier about this? Maybe they need to give you a replacement SIM.

    That's always a good first step. Did you get this phone directly from your carrier, or did you get it somewhere else and bring it to the carrier? If you got it from the carrier, that guarantees that the phone is fully compatible with all of the carrier's network bands. If you brought it from somewhere else, that may not always be the case, which can potentially lead to connection issues.

    I did purchase the phone from the carrier.

    Tried resetting the network and the sim card is around a month or two old, came with the phone when I bought it as well.
    I tried removing/re-inserting the sim, so will see if the problem persists.
    I'm baffled as to why this only occurs while I'm asleep and not using the phone for 7-9 hours as this is only when I have the issue.

    You able to test your sim in another device to see if it does the same?
