I need some help with setting up a Samsung Rugby 2

Hi I am new at posting questions, hope this is the correct way.  I am trying to help a friend with switching from Bell to Public Mobile.  I put in the unlock code, and a PM sim card but I see in the settings everything seems still tied to Bell. He cannot access internet or get picture texts.  I have tried a factory reset and still things tied to Bell and same problems.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Here is a great site to setup your APN and instructions on how to do it.  Find the APN Settings for Public Mobile here!

Youve got the community posting figured out..😀 as for the phone...did you port from bell? ie..use the bell number..or is it a new activation and the phone still uses bell settings?

Thanks for the guidance. He used his Bell # and it seems it is still using Bell settings

You're going to have to change your apn settings. You can just google pm apn and it'll guide you in how to do so!

Thanks for the assistants.  I have updaed the APN settings except  cannot find where to check that the mms port is 80, it is not showing in the settings.  Should I again try a factory restore again?

Thanks

@Pita to check that, you must go to the messaging app and go to the mms Setting from there, if you google how it'll show you step by step!!
