I update my Z Fold 3 to One UI 5.1 - Android Version 13 on 25 April 2023 and direct after update my Z Fold 3 Wi-Fi stop working and also my large screen start freezing and restart. Wish I would go back to One UI 5.0 as it work perfect.
Call customer service twice today, first time they ask me to "Setting - General Management - Reset - Reset Network settings - Restart phone." This work for 1 hour then the Wi-Fi turn off and could not turn on again.
The second time I call, they ask me to do a "Factory Reset" not preferable as this will only be my last resource action as this is very time consuming and a lot of my setting will be lost etc etc.
Dose anyone have this issue?? anyone solved the Wi-Fi and Large screen issue it???
Thanks in advance
Backing up your phone (via smart switch on pc) will make the factory reset a lot less painful though!
Ended up backup the phone data and did a factory reset, and the result is that wifi still dose not work, book a appointment today to bring in the phone to service center.

the proof of purchase is at home, but i book a appointment today and i can always send them proof or porches or they can check online as i bought the phone on Samsung online. thanks for your info, just a pain as Wi-Fi is a important as this few days I ended up using 3-4gb per day of my 30gb network data, and the most painful is the hassle to deal with all the bank, credit card and octopus card later.

SAMSUNG - I been using your phone sense I switch over from Iphone5, I wonder is it time to switch back to Apple??? get a grip on your service. this is a perfect story for SCMP.
This morning been calling helpline - could not help (9:00am)
Call Langham Place Samsung Service Center (9:30am) leave you number we will call you back.
Now is 5:30pm no call back from Langham Place - grate service for a phone that cost 15,000hkd.
I am in Hong Kong, and Samsung service has been very slow responding and quite bad in there customer service, as it been taking 3 days sense I got a quotation from them telling me that the Wi-Fi module is damage, and nothing to do with my update One UI 5.1 (from 5.0). As a customer I told them that after I update the 5.0 to 5.1 the Wi-Fi stop working, so it my fault (LOL), think i will be careful to update any update from Samsung in the future.
Don't take me wrong, the phone is grate been hassle free for the warranty period and only after 1.5 year this happened.
And because the Wi-Fi module is link to the LCD screen they need to change the LCD screen as well (OMG) so they will change 4200hkd (535USD), and after some bouncing around with different ppl and lots of wait they say I will get 50% off and because I don't want to wait and would like have my phone back I have not paid the quite unreasonable cost for the repair, and now let see how long it will take for the repair.
I am currently looking for other Apple as I did go from iphone5 over to Samsung family however not sure the current experience is worth me to stay.
Have grate day.
