But what if that is not an option?
Play from the server closest to you
It is true that certain servers may have less better players than you at a certain point of time. For example, Europe, North and South America seems to be easier to play and get chicken dinner compared to Asia server. However, this may be due to the time-difference. The servers are made available for the purpose of higher speed access and improved gaming experience and not skill based. So select the server closest to you and play from that server to obtain optimum ping and smooth game.
Your Location while Playing
You can relocate yourself in other areas of your place or house. Usually, depending on the location, ground and lower floors tend to get weaker network signals. So climbing to the top or higher floors of your house to play PUBG Mobile is an alternative solution. Even better, you can play at your terrace. However, we would like to add a disclaimer here that your safety comes first and we by no means encourage you to play in an unsafe location or position whatsoever. Our point here is simply to help you find a location with better network reception and get a good internet connection therefrom.
Connect to WiFi
This is the right solution in regard to receiving calls while playing PUBG Mobile. If you are expecting a call or are normally getting calls or are playing during daytime, you may receive a call. To avoid getting the server timeout error, connect to WiFi and play the game. The phone call will not disturb your internet connection and hence the issue will be fixed.
Ensure that you are not running out of Mobile Data
While PUBG Mobile is an interesting game and you are so deeply hooked to it, you may forget to check your Mobile data balance unless you are connected to WiFi. Although playing online games such as PUBG Mobile does not consume much data, you may face the reconnect error if you run out of it mid-game. So this is one common sense which is not so common. Be sure to watch out for this as well.
Your Phone is Consuming Data in the Background
You phone may also be consuming data in the background such as automatic updating of apps especially while connected to WiFi. You can turn off or pause all apps update while playing PUBG Mobile. Even better, turn them off before you start the match. Other reasons may include downloading other files or apps while playing PUBG. So you should avoid that to ensure a smooth gameplay.
