Hi ArmughanSultan, 

 

I would suggest to Reset APN Settings first. Let me know how it goes.

Hi ArmughanSultan,

 

I recommend checking with your carrier as I can see all Settings are turned off.

Hi.

I had the same issue and i solved it.

All that you have to do is:

Go to Settings select apps, from the right top corner ( three dots )select sistem apps, look for cell broadcast in the list, select it, go to permissions and deselect messages and after that stop the app and reboot.

I hope that works for you

Hi,

The issue is not provider related as it appeared immediately after update and other Lenovo phones don't have these notifications without update to Android 7.

I guess the only option is to root and disable these broadcast's. Do you have any tool available for rooting?
