I have been having issues with the new iPhone max xs that I never had with the iPhone 7 plus. No matter where i am at I have slow data specially with sending text messages. i have to send it more than once sometimes 3 times even with being connected to WiFi. its very frustrating trying to send messages and sometimes i get messages 2-3 times in a row from someone. What can i do to fix my signal or get the data to move faster. I have reset network connections, done the update for whatever. It is still very slow.

Hey IrishRebel86. Can you do me a favor and do a force restart of your device then run through a few updates and let me know if that helps anything?
Dial ##873283# then tap Call.
When Starting Service Update displays, tap OK.
When Service Update Completed displays, tap OK.
I’ve been going through this exact problem when I upgraded from my IPhone 7 Plus to this IPhone XS Max. My phone alternates between no service and 3G and Sprint hasn’t done anything to fix it but give me the run around. The phone has been switched 3 times. It’s not the phone. It’s Sprints crappy service that’s not working. When I call they lie and say I show you have excellent signal as I’m sitting w/ 1 bar on 3G. I don’t remember the last time I was able to watch a video without it buffering or loading for that matter since switching to this phone. I’ve tried every troubleshooting step. I’ve called Sprint and had to deal w/their rude customer service people who don’t do anything to help but provide the same basic troubleshooting steps. While sitting here my phone went from 1 bar on 3G to no bars and not 3G or LTE.
Trust me. I’ve gone rounds with them. I’ve reset this and that. And it would work for not even a day before it was back to crappy signal. I never had this problem with my 7 plus.
its something on the Apple side that is currently being looked into by both Sprint and Apple.
My entire family is having this same problem. We are 4 iPhone XRs, an X, an XS, and an XS Max. Cannot use these phones indoors, cannot use them in the car. If we travel outside the city, we lose signal, which is major trouble since I have 3 kids in different colleges, and we travel quite a bit.
cant make phone calls, can’t send messages, can’t access data, maps cuts out...they said at the store that the phone would roam off Verizon, but I used to be Verizon, and I NEVER had these problems. Saving the money wasn’t worth it
It looks like there was a service alert on a tower in that area. Please update the data profile on your phone to see if this clears up the issues. If you need the steps, please let me know what phone you have.
