Special Code to Reset The Network (SCRTN)
##SCRTN# (##72786# on the phone dialpad) is the code that should be dialed to initiate the process of resetting mobile device network settings. An SCRTN is sometimes referred to as a “network reset” by industry professionals.
In the United States, for Verizon / MetroPCS / US Cellular, this feature code is *228 (*ACT). For Sprint, it is ##873283# (it is also possible to use code ##72786# on Android or ##25327# on iOS to completely clear out the service programming and redo OTA activation, which includes updating the PRL).
What do numbers ##25327# and ##873283# each do? CLEAR (25327) removes the device network provisioning then updates it. UPDATE (873283) just checks for any changes compared to what is already provisioned on the device and updates them if there is a difference.

The network frequently disconnects and reconnects due to the network speed limit of the data plan. Some mobile data plans limit the network speeds if the data you use exceeds the threshold. You can contact the customer service of the carrier to check if you have used more data than what is permitted by the plan limit.
