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.

So, resetting the phone back to its default network settings could be your ideal choice and could also resolve data not working issue on your phone.
