Alcatel flip phone won't connect

Mayor / Maire

I bought an Alcatel flip phone model 4044M  for a spare phone and I can't get it to connect to public Mobile at all.  If I scan all I find is Rogers 2G,  I have it set to lte/hspa/gsm so it should pick up public mobile.  It was on Eastlink before so it doesn't make sense that it doesn't even find Eastlink. I found an old thread that somone had the model M and it didn't work, only the model V works they said but nobody can explain why.  I have factory reset it and restarted it with the public Mobile Sim card in it and nothing.

This is my exact situation. Did you get it resolved?

@softech  I checked it with that link and it says it's clean.  It shouldn't be locked because it would ask me for a code.  I read before that the 4044V  works and the 4044M  doesn't with public mobile but it doesn't say why



it is a Go Flip 3?

it should connect to PM 's 3G network , but won't be great for 4G

3G bands HSDPA 850 / 1700(AWS) / 1900
4G bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 25, 26, 41, 66, 71

did you check if the phone is clean?
