Full bars with no signal happening more often?
I have noticed much worse network connectivity for the past 3-4 weeks (in Seattle and Mercer Island, WA). I often have full bars and the "5G e" [rolls eyes] icon, but I am completely offline. This happens in areas where I usually have pretty good service (at work downtown, and walking around my neighborhood).
Restarting the phone usually fixes the problem, and the signal indicator becomes more accurate (2-3 bars). Speed is usually around 3-5Mps after a restart, which is not stellar, but sufficient.
I am using a Samsung Galaxy S9. I realize that the signal indicator can never be flawless, but it seems to have gotten far less accurate recently, but this is not as concerning as the fact that I am losing signal completely in non-dead zones.
I know that this might be more of a phone hardware/Android problem, but I am curious if there is something that has changed on the network that might be making things worse.
Let me know if you need more info. Thanks in advance.
