First, make sure your network is functioning by going to google.com, searching for "internet speed test," then tapping or clicking "Run Speed Test." Make a note of the download/upload speed and the unit of measurement (kbps or Mbps).

Next, try turning Airplane mode ON. Turn airplane mode OFF after a minute, then try opening the app again to see if it has reconnected.
