Airplane mode data restartCommuters in particular will be familiar and frustrated with the randomness with which your data connection can drop. Sometimes it’s simple physics. You’re in a tunnel and the signal can’t reach you.

However, other times you’re in an urban area with no significant tall buildings or crowds interfering with the signal and you can’t seem to get your signal back.

You can try restarting your phone, but a quicker way is to switch airplane mode off and on. It may work, it may not, but it’s worth a try and has worked for me on several occasions.

To give it a try, you just do the following:

  1. Go to the ‘Settings’ app
  2. At the top is Airplane mode
  3. Swipe it to ‘On’
  4. Swipe it back again
  5. Keep your fingers crossed and it may have refreshed your data signal
