I am trying to install Signal on a phone (Android 8). I just need this installed for verifying/linking my actual Signal desktop app. When I enter my number, the app tells me it has no permission/access to the network. The error message translated to English is:

Unable to connect to service. Please check your network connection and try again.

I have checked both the internet connection and the mobile connection, they work fine. I gave Signal all the permissions it asked for.

Is there anything else I can do?

Edit: It seems to work (for a while) when the Signal app is updated. I managed to relink my Signal Desktop app to the smartphone app after the smartphone app had updated. Then, after some days, the Desktop app unlinked itself again. I installed the smartphone app again via Google Play and was able to relink again. It's not logic and stable, but it can be a workaround.
