Re: Facebook not working on 4G

This is the solution that I worked out

 

 

If you have a samsung phone do the following:

 

Go to connections

Mobile networks

Access Point Names

Click ADD

 

name is  Internet 2

APN   type 'everywhere'

 

leave all the rest blank... Now try..

 

Does this work?

 

if you have iphone it's same procedure just find your  access point networks

Images and video not loading on 4g

Hi there i was wondering if anybody could help me,

 

Recently ive noticed a really odd problem when im on 4G. Apps like facebook and instagram wont load images or play video when im on 4g. Everything works fine, i can connect to the net, use whatsapp, gmail, speedtests ect, just images wont load on certain websites. Ive tried logging in through a browser to facebook and i get the same outcome. everyting loads but the images and video. It works perfectly over wifi. 

 

Ive searched lots online and cant find a solution. Ive tried resetting, cache clearing, making sure content filtering is turned off and nothing. the only thing that oddly works is forcing my phone into 3g. when i do it, everything loads absolutely fine. I only noticed this problem a day ago and it was working fine up until then as far as im aware. Im on a galaxy s8 and on a monthly plan.

Re: Facebook not working on 4G

have litereally the exact same issue and just made a post about it before finding yours. any luck in fixing it? youtube works also but runs slower than usual. im on a galaxy s8. works fine in 3g but obviously using a 5mbs connecting when youre paying for 100 is not viable. doesnt work through the app or the browser so i assume its on EEs end?

Re: Facebook not working on 4G

I have exactly the same issue. I only got my new s8 plus a few days ago and social apps such as Snapchat YouTube etc take ages to load. Videos don't load properly nor do pictures.

Re: Facebook not working on 4G

Hi, I have a Sony xperia X compact. Unfortunately this solution has not worked for me. I have found the only way I can get Facebook to load pictures is:

In mobile networks turn to 3g.

Wait a few minutes 

Turn back to 4g 

 

Facebook now loads pictures and video. But I have to do it every time I come of wifi. Very frustrating.
