Shortened standby time. The duration of standby
time is affected by your
service provider’s system
configuration. The same
tablet used with different
service providers' systems
does not have the same
duration of standby time
(LTE/HSPA+ only).
If you are located in an area
where the network signal is
weak, move your location to
the area where the network
signal is strong or temporarily
turn off your tablet if needed.
If you are not able to
connect to the network,
the tablet continues to send
out signals as it attempts
to locate a base station.
Doing this consumes battery
charge and consequently
shortens standby time.
Change your location to
one where the network is
accessible, or temporarily
turn off your tablet.
Messaging problems Possible causes Possible solutions
Unable to send or receive text
messages.
Your tablet is in airplane
mode with no wireless
connectivity.
Slide the status panel down
and then disable
Airplane mode.
The network signal strength
is not strong enough.
Try moving to a different
location for better signal
reception.
Unable to send or receive
email.
The Internet connection
or the email setting is not
configured properly.
Check your network
connection, and confirm with
your email service provider if
your email setting has been
configured correctly.
