How to reset phone network settings on Android and iOS?

You can easily reset network settings on your phone within a few clicks. But why do you need to!!!

Sometimes, your phone’s Cellular network or WiFi suddenly doesn’t connect or disconnects while browsing. Your Bluetooth’s sound may glitch or won’t search or pair with a nearby device.
