Samsung Galaxy A50

I recently  upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy A50. After activating it worked perfectly  for about an hour, then it started Roaming nonstop in my home coverage area. The phone e still worked ok, except it would drop down to 3g roaming and wouldn't let me use data, it would say "no data connection". Sprint sent me a new SIM card telling me this would fix the issue. It didn't. So then they sent me a new Galaxy A50.. this one worked perfectly  for about 24 hours but is now doing the same thing the first phone did. 

Anyone else having trouble wit their Samsung  Galaxy A50 constantly  roaming? Is there a fix or a known issue with this phone?

Re: Samsung Galaxy A50

Have you tried turning roaming off? Does it still work if you do that?

Yes it still works if I turn roaming off. The only time it doesn't work is if I lose LTE. If I lose LTE I can still make/receive calls but I have no data connection.

What zip code are you in? Have you ever been able to use LTE on this phone?

Re: Samsung Galaxy A50

There aren't any reported issues in that area. Have you tried doing a PRL update?

Yes, I have done the update a couple of times. I have 5 phones on my plan, my phone is the only one having this issue.

Yes it's the only A50 on the account. This is the second A50 I've had.. I returned  the first one because  of this exact same issue within my 30 days

Let's submit a tech support ticket and see if there's a fix for this. Please send me a PM with your name, phone number and IMEI of the phone. I also need a good email address.

Re: Samsung Galaxy A50

I recently got an A50 and mine constantly displays roaming also. It displays roaming even if I turn roaming off in settings. It has been working fine this way.When I called 611 they couldn’t resolve the issue and told me to return it so when I did the salesman told me this normal now days which I know better but I could tell he wasn’t willing to help and I have been using the phone for over a month this way and it appears to work normal. It displays roam more than it displays sprint but has worked fine.
