How to Fix No Service on your Google Pixel and Pixel XL [Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL]

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are some of the hottest Android phones out there right now. They are getting high reviews for having the highest rated smartphone camera, unlimited storage for photos and videos, and being the first phones with the Google Assistant built into them.

The Pixel and Pixel XL are the first phones that carry the Google name. Previous “Google phones” were branded Nexus. Overall people are praising their new Pixel and Pixel XL phones. However, nothing’s perfect and the phones are new. Users should expect a few problems with their new phones.

Google Pixel and Pixel XL users are reporting issues with their phones receiving a “No Service” error. There could be various reasons including the phone’s signal being turned off, sometimes without you intentionally turning it off. It’s similar to an issue that’s been reported on the Galaxy S7 Edge.

How to Fix No Service on your Google Pixel and Pixel XL [Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL]:

Restore IMEI number

The IMEI issue is that it doesn’t work properly and needs repaired. It can keep phone users from making calls, sending texts and using their mobile data.

Here are two solutions.

Update firmware

Step 1: Turn on your phone.

Step 2: Go to Apps from the home screen.

Step 3: tap on Settings.

Step 4: Tap on About Device.

Step 5: Select “Software Option.”

Step 6: When you see a prompt appear, select Download.

Step 7: Wait for the download to finish.

Restore null IMEI

Step 1: Turn on the phone.

Step 2: Enable and enter its USB debugging mode.

Step 3: Connect your phone to the computer.

Step 4: Download the EFS Restorer Express to your computer.

Step 5: Open the app and run the EFS-BACK.BAT file.

Step 6: Choose a method that will restore the EFS via Odin.

Run ping test

Here is another suggested way to fix the No Service issue.

Step 1: Type *#*#4636#*#* on your phone’s dial pad. You don’t have to press.

Step 2: Enter service mode.

Step 3: Tap on Device information or Phone information.

Step 4: Run a Ping test.

Step 5: Click on the Turn Radio Off button.

Step 6: Wait for the Pixel/Pixel XL to restart.

Step 7: Tap reboot.

Change SIM card

Another reported solution is to see if the SIM card needs replaced or if it’s inserted correctly. Either take it out and re-insert it or replace it with a new one. Once you do, see if the No Service issue is fixed.

Low signal issues

Another possible issue is having a low signal. If your signal indicator is mostly empty in your notification bar, your signal is low.

It isn’t a major problem if you still get phone and data services. Possible issues could be being in an area without coverage by your carrier or being in a building constructed by material that may be interfering with your signal. You can go outside and see if that helps improve your signal.
