OSRS Mobile not working

Here are a few troubleshooting steps that you can follow to identify why Old School Runescape mobile is not working and how to fix these issues –

Check for Update

If the OSRS mobile not working on you, the first thing you have to check is if there is a new version available there.

Sometimes when they release the new version, the older version might not work properly. 

Switch to another network

Sometimes Old Rune Oldscape might have trouble difficulty using the network. You can try using another network like WiFi instead of mobile data.

Check for ongoing issues

Old School RuneScape is an online multiplayer game, which depends on the server and internet connectivity.

If there is any glitch or any issue going on right now, it will also affect playability as well.

Check with Developers and confirm there is no outgoing issue right now.

How to Solve OSRS Mobile not loading

If OSRS not loading, it might be an indication of either – Network connectivity issue, low storage, or ram.

Make sure that your network is not slow and working properly.

Also, make sure that you have enough storage and ram in your phone to play this game.

This game might not work properly on low-end devices.

Troubleshoot OSRS not working on the Data of mobile

Old School RuneScape, being an online multiple RPG requires a constant Internet connection.

Wi-Fi is the best choice for online multiplayer games.

But that might be not an option for every place.

Especially for mobile users, Cellular data connection provides portability that WiFi connection can never have.

But for some OSRS players, the Game is not working while they are using mobile data.

They are unable to play online using mobile data and get an error like an error connecting to the server or some other issue.

It could happen because your Network operator might block the game server or website.

That is the only reasonable explanation if it’s working on WiFi but not on mobile data.

To fix this issue, you can use another SIM card for mobile data or use a VPN connection.

There are tons of VPN apps available on the Play store and iOS app store.

Resolve “Error Connecting to Server” error

This is one of the most common issues for Old School RuneScape players.

The server error happened, for either one of these reasons –

  • Just like the error code suggest that there is some sort of server issue going on right now.
  • The problem might be with your WiFi/Network connection. Slow or no internet could be also the reason.

So, the first thing you have to do is that there is no issue with your network connection.

Second, you have to check that there is no server-side issue going on right now.

RuneScape, just like other online gaming servers goes under scheduled maintenance from time to time to update games.

You can check with them and confirm it.

OSRS Connecting to Update Server

Some of the users, especially those who are using OSRS PC client where it stuck and show the following error code –

“Connecting to update server”.

For some users, after a long time, it also shows another error where it displays –

“RuneScape was unable to connect to the update server”

The error also indicates that this issue is likely caused by a firewall.

While it is possible, and if you have a firewall active you should check that is not the reason.

Another reason might be not allowing OSRS client network permission.

During the installation, it asked for permission to use an internet connection.

Make sure that you allow both Private and Public connections.

How to Solve Can’t Log in to OSRS Mobile

Login issues are not the only result of wrong credentials.

Some of it could be the result of the game server being down or the result of an update going in the background.

Just in case you are unable to login into your RuneScape account, the first thing that you have to check is to make sure that you have entered the right password and username.

If you are still unable to log in, try using the same account but on a different device.

Pay attention to the error code displayed on the screen.
