6 Best Fixes for ‘We Will Try Again When There’s a Better Connection’ Error on Instagram
Instagram continually improves ways to share life updates with friends and family. Adding followers as close friends allows you to selectively share posts, Reels, and Stories, enhancing privacy.
Some users can’t post content on Instagram due to an error that says ‘We Will Try Again When There’s a Better Connection.’ If you encounter the same, here are some solutions to remove this error.
1. Avoid Saving Posts as Drafts
Instagram lets you save posts as drafts to edit before publishing. However, in our experience, this causes an error when posting the draft. We recommend scheduling your posts instead of saving them as drafts. If scheduling isn’t an option, try posting at the desired time.
2. Avoid Posting Multiple Photos in One Post
To avoid this error on your Instagram profile, refrain from posting Carousel posts. Posting multiple pictures at once can also trigger this issue. Some users have found that not tagging too many accounts in their posts prevents the error from appearing.
3. Trim Your Videos Before Posting
If you are posting videos with large file sizes, we suggest trimming them before posting on Instagram. The app gives you the option to trim your video duration before posting. Open Instagram on your iPhone or Android phone and tap the Plus icon at the bottom.
Step 2: Select your video and tap Next at the bottom-right corner.
Step 3: Use the trimming tool to reduce your video’s duration. Then, try posting to see if the problem is solved.
We suggest converting your videos to the H.265 codec, which efficiently reduces file size. For iPhone users, follow these steps to select the high-efficiency codec for shooting videos:
Step 1: Open the Settings app and tap Camera.
Step 2: Tap on Formats and select High Efficiency. This will also help if you shoot HDR videos or 4K Ultra HD resolution videos.
4. Check Account Status
After addressing potential post-related issues, you can verify if Instagram has restricted certain features for you. Check your Account Status to determine whether any actions you’ve taken on your profile align with Instagram guidelines. Here’s how to confirm this:
1. Open the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android phone.
2. Tap your profile icon at the bottom-right corner, then tap the hamburger menu icon at the top-left corner.
Step 3: Select Settings and Privacy. Scroll down to the bottom and tap on Account Status.
Check if your profile has ticked off all the checkboxes. Your Account Status will determine if any previous posts have restricted your access to Instagram.
5. Login Again to Instagram
If you still face the same issue, try logging in again to your Instagram profile. If you have no issues with your Account Status, we suggest following this solution.
Step 1: Open the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android phone.
Step 2: Tap on your profile icon at the bottom-right corner. Then tap the hamburger menu icon at the top-left corner.
Step 3: Tap Settings and Privacy, select Account Center.
Step 4: Tap on Accounts and remove your profile name.
Step 5: Login to Instagram again to check if the problem is solved.
If you don’t have multiple Instagram profiles, tap Settings and Privacy, then select Log Out at the bottom.
6. Report to Instagram
If none of the solutions work, we suggest reporting this error directly to Instagram. You can refer to our post to learn how to contact Instagram to report a problem. This allows users to get in touch with the Instagram team to work on removing errors.
