Since the last update, my LG G2 phone has problems connecting to mobile data networks. Normally, it would connect automatically as soon as I lost a viable WiFi signal. Now it doesn’t, even when I see the mobile data network paired with the full signal icon.
Is there some solution or setting variation I can try to solve this issue?

If you have a problem connecting your phone to the mobile network even if the data connection is already turned on, try restarting your handset.
If it doesn’t work, completely drain the battery by playing games. If the phone no longer opens because of an empty battery, wait for about 5 to 10 minutes before recharging. When charging it, make sure it is turned off so no battery is wasted. When the battery is fully charged, start the phone.
Make sure the Wi-Fi connection is turned off and the data connection is turned on. Start the web browser and see if you can open a website. If there is still a problem, go to the data connection then turn it off and then turn it on again. Try it again afterwards.
