There is an array of options in the market regarding smartphones, but one that provides great features with a huge potential for a limited budget is the LG Stylo edition. This device was launched in 2020 and it became popular because it’s a brand new model from top to bottom, unlike the Stylo 5 which was a re-released Stylo 4 model.
One of the first eye-catching features of the LG Stylo 6 is the polished mirror finish that makes it look very premium to be a budget phone, and also the three cameras on the back, which could be considered the biggest upgrade of this device. Plus LG added a not-so-common accessory on thousand-dollar smartphones: the stylus pen.
The LG Stylo 6 has other amazing features that we’ll tell you about further down, but now we’re going to focus on guiding you on its network settings, or more precisely, on how to reset network settings on LG Stylo 6.
How To Reset Network Settings On LG Stylo 6
In any case, if your LG Stylo 6 is presenting some difficulties connecting to the internet, send or receive messages or emails, follow these steps to reset its network settings:
- Go to the Settings icon.
- Select Network & Internet option.
- Select the Mobile Networks option.
- Look for the Access Point Name option.
- Then select the Menu button at the top right.
- Select Restore Default Settings.
- After that, your phone will reset to default Internet and Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) settings.
Hopefully, network problems should be solved at this point. Remember to turn off your WiFi before testing again.
In case you are not able to go online yet, you can try these workarounds too:
1. Once you get to the Menu bottom, select “Add APN”
*APN is your smartphone’s indicator of the route to follow to connect to the available network. Each operator has its own APN, a series of parameters to provide internet access to its customers, and most of the time you don’t have to manually set it up since this is managed from fabric. But when users have trouble with network settings it is usually related to this parameter.
The most important information you need is the name of the APN and the MNC. In addition, you’re probably going to need a username and password provided by your company, but in many cases, you must leave it blank. The rest of the data would be completed by default and you should not modify it.
2. Enter only these values:
- APN Type
3. Now tap on the Save option
4. Finally, select the Internet access point to set up your phone
By following these prompts the problem should be solved and you will be able to normally connect to your usual network with your LG Stylo 6.
Another easier way to reset your settings without changing anything related to the Access Point is this one:
- From your Home screen, navigate to the Settings icon and select System.
- Tap on the Restart & reset option.
- Tap on the Network settings reset option.
- Then tap on the Reset Settings option below.
- If prompted, enter the PIN, password, or pattern.
- To confirm, tap Reset Settings again.
Even though LG is not manufacturing smartphones anymore, a decision made in April 2021, the LG Stylo 6 has kept a high rate of popularity because it’s a full package of basic features improved plus cool add-ons such as the Style.
