    I've been looking for a fix for Facebook Messenger. I've tried uninstalling / reinstalling and it picks up my data connection for a while and then goes to "Waiting for network". It will work over Wi-Fi but won't hold a data connection.

    Is your data connection stable? Could you use Microsoft's Network Speed Test app and test your data connection for stability and bandwidth?

    Try using Facebook Messenger from other platforms and see if they are connecting fine? If they are, means the WP version sucks big time.

    Try changing your data settings to max at 4G speeds. Works for me.

    Go to Settings -> Cellular + SIM -> Highest connection speed to LTE

    I have the same problem and it really ruins my experience with the phone.
    Any news if this is going to be fixed or how to fix it?

    Mine is not LTE so I can choose only 3g

    I did some more playing with the program last day. The strangest thing is that sometimes I receive notification about a new message, in the notification bar I can read it, but when I unlock the phone and open the program it says waiting for network and the chat wont update.

    I doubt it is the network, because I can see my messages, just the program wont update. It happens randomly, because most of the time I sit on a desk and don't move around.

    Maybe you have a triangle icon next to your sygnal strength? That means you're on roaming and by default roaming data transfer is disabled in settings

    There is no triangle next to the signal icon. It just randomly gets "Waiting for network" and the main chat program window wont update. While I can see the new incoming messages in the notification bar.

    Does closing the app (hold back, swipe Messenger down) and restarting it help?

    Some times it does help, some times if I click on the notification from the notification bar, program updates faster. If I just wait for some time eventualy I get all the messages updated, but it takes some random amount of time

    Thanks, worked for me. I mean, I already had cellular data set to 4G, but I changed it to 3G and back again and it seems to do the trick.
