    1. I’ve got the same deal … No 5G, only WiFi and at the most 2G. T-Mobile is sending another phone to replace.

    2. Updated to android 12 and only having an issue with rotation of the screen to landscape modes. Absolutely no other problems. Some of the comments definitely need to be addressed by samsung service.

    3. Had the same issue on T-mobile. Installed the update to Android 12 and everything was fine for about 2 weeks. Then I had the same issues you mentioned. Installed the security patch hoping it would fix my Fold, but to no avail. Did all the troubleshooting I could, even got a new sim… no dice. T-mobile had to replace my Fold. What BS

  2. This sucks I have no signal what so ever the keyboard is lagging certain apps won’t open. Pictures disappeared. This is the most retarded purchase I’ve ever made I regret every second of it now im stuck with a phone with no network connect at my house where i always had coverage before. Help
