***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled.

Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Get message that phone is not registered to a network and can only make emergency calls on Samsung S21 5g. It happens when driving and in remote areas

Cant make or receive call when I get the message "Your Phone is not registered to a network, so you can only make emergency calls. This happens when driving on highways or in less populated area's.  I usually restart phone several times before it might work

sbrzz, we always want to ensure your devices and services are working as they should be. You mentioned getting this message popping up when you are in more remote areas. Do you happen to have examples of where this is occuring (ex: closest intersection & zip code)?
