How to Fix Pixel 7 and 7 Pro Connectivity Issue (No Network/Service)? 

The Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are the latest phones from Google. They have some of the best cameras on a smartphone. However, some users have reported facing mobile network or cellular connectivity issues on their Google Pixel 7/7 Pro.

Users have reported that the connectivity is fine when they insert their SIM card for the first time. But after a few hours, the network drops and even shows “No service” or “No network” notifications.

Other users get a “No SIM” notification even when the SIM card is in place. The issue is persistent even after trying different SIM cards from various carriers. A handful of other users have reported that the problem starts when switching from a Wi-Fi to a cellular network. But how do you fix this issue? Has Google done something about it? Let us find out in this article.

Fix Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro Connectivity Issues

Google has acknowledged the connectivity issue on the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro and said an update is coming. The Android 13 QPR3 3.1 beta was released recently, which seems to have fixed most users’ issues. However, if you are still having the issue, you can try some workarounds that should fix the issue.

Before you move ahead, we recommend trying the basic troubleshooting steps, such as reinserting the SIM card, turning the Airplane mode on and off, restarting your phone, and resetting network settings. If all of these fail to fix the issue, you can move down to the following workarounds:

Fix 1: Manually Enter APN

Some users suggested manually entering your carrier APN can fix the issue. This fix is worth trying if you see a “No service” or “No network” notification. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Open the Settings app and tap on Network and Internet.
  2. Now, tap on “Internet.”
  3. Tap on the “gear icon” next to your SIM card.
  4. Scroll down and tap on Access point names.
  5. Now, tap on the + icon at the top.
  6. Tap on Name and enter your carrier name.
  7. Then, tap on APN and enter your carrier’s APN.
  8. Similarly, enter the username, password, MCC (country code), and MNC (network code).
  9. Set the Authentication type to “None” and the APN type to “Default.”
  10. When all is done, tap on the three dots at the top and tap Save.
  11. Now, select the APN you just created.
  12. Restart your phone and check if the network issue persists.

Fix 2: Turn Off Wi-Fi Calling

Wi-Fi calling can interfere with the cellular network on your Pixel phone. So, turn it off and see if the issue disappears. If the problem disappears, you must wait for Google to patch the problem before turning in Wi-Fi calling again. Here’s how to turn off Wi-Fi calling:

  1. Open the Settings app and tap on Network and Internet.
  2. Then, tap on Mobile Network > Advanced.
  3. Go to the Wi-Fi calling section.
  4. Turn off the toggle next to Wi-Fi calling.

Once you have turned off Wi-Fi calling, the issue should be eliminated. However, if the problem persists, move down to the next solution.

Fix 3: Turn Off Private DNS

Some users have claimed that turning off certain features like private DNS will resolve the no-network issue for a while. Remember that the issue will only be fixed for a bit, and it might reappear in the future.

  1. Open the Settings app and tap on Network and Internet.
  2. Now, tap on “Internet.”
  3. Tap on the “gear icon” next to your SIM card.
  4. Tap on Private DNS.
  5. Turn off the toggle next to Private DNS.

Fix 4: Update your Phone

Lastly, updating your phone should help resolve the issue. If your Pixel phone runs on an older software version, you must update it immediately. Moreover, if no updates are available right now, keep an eye as any future updates will surely fix the issue. Here’s how to check for updates on your Pixel phone:

Note: If you are roaming, you might not receive your Pixel 7/7 Pro software updates.

  1. Open the Settings app and tap on System.
  2. Then, tap on System Update.
  3. Tap on Check for updates. This will check for any available updates for your phone. If you don’t see the “Check for updates” option, your phone is up to date.
  4. Tap on OK if prompted.
  5. Tap on Download and follow the on-screen prompts to install the update.
  6. Once the update is installed, restart your phone and check if the issue has been resolved.

Contact your Carrier

The connectivity issue on your Pixel 7/7 Pro can also be due to the carrier. Contact your carrier and ask them about the network service in your area. If they acknowledge their service is at fault, wait for the issue to be resolved. If the carrier service isn’t at fault, your handset has the problem. You can even try inserting the SIM into the phone of a family member or friend to see if the service is OK.

I am still facing the issue; what to do now?

If none of the above fixes helped you fix the connectivity issue on your Pixel 7/7 Pro, all you can do is wait for Google to patch this issue via an update. You can also get help from Google’s support team to see if they can help you. If you want, you can even get your handset replaced if it’s under warranty.
