Anybody having cell service issues? Random slow connection? My phone shows 3 bars of LTE but doesn't load. Only noticed it once hitting the beta, not sure if it was just poor timing.

I have to restart my iPhone basically every time I change from Wifi to LTE, otherwise virtually all cell service stops. No calls, no texts, no data. Hopefully this is addressed in the next beta

My 6 plus, 7 plus, and 8 plus had cell issues. Took them to Apple. They replaced all three.

Was having this problem here as well. I installed as a fresh install (popped iPhone into restore mode, restored via iTunes to 12.0, set up as new iPhone).

A "Reset Network Settings" (Settings > General > Reset) seems to have cleared this up for me. Been good for the past week or so.

I'm going to give beta 2 a shot before I Reset Network Settings, but thanks for the tip!

Alright, so I was still having issues switching from WiFi to LTE on Beta 2. All internet died completely on LTE until I reset my iPhone, along with the ability to send and receive all green bubble texts and phone calls. Toggling Airplane Mode didn’t help. I needed a reset.

I just Reset Network Settings as well as Reset Location and Privacy, so we’ll see how it goes when I leave the WiFi again.
