UMIDIGI A13 Pro 5G

I bought a UMIDIGI A13 Pro 5G during the recent Black Friday sales.....


After a bit of setup, I put in my Public Mobile sim card....within 5 seconds everything was totally set up; voice, data & messaging work as they should!!


I must say I was most impressed & very pleased....😊....

I should also mention that 5G & VoLTE were automatically turned on....

Same experience, Samsung S20FE 5G purchased from Public Mobile and without 5G access. Crucially VoLTE works.

I hate to say this, enjoy the VoLTE while it lasts.  I have the exact phone.  VoLTE worked for about a month and out of the blue, I experienced a rug pull.  5G still works though.

@wetcoaster....

Here's hoping....I'm supposed to switch to a 5G plan (I'm 4G right now) at the middle of December, so we'll see what happens...

Fingers crossed that VoLTE and 5G stay accessible long term for you. There is a chance that Public Mobile will take it away once the system detects that your phone is not on their white list.

(Yes, speaking from experience, my Umidigi Bison 2021 is back to 3G calling after a few weeks of VoLTE access when my account was first updated)


I am disappointed that Public Mobile does this.  There's just no reason for it and many will say that it's anti-competitive behavior.

Yes, I had been reading some of the older Unidigi posts & I was a little apprehensive....I almost couldn't believe my eyes that everything set up so fast & worked!!....

Must have been my lucky day....😊....

I'm glad your set up worked right away. Thanks for sharing. 

I have Samsung s20 and can't even get 5g so that's great for Umdigi. I was looking into that phone a few weeks ago. Really rugged and tough with strong battery.

Great review @FlutteringBy 

Yes, Umidigi seems to be very popular here.  But data sometimes hard to make it work and glad it is working for you

This is great feedback even though I Never heard of that brand. I personally would stick with Pixel or Samsung (even though Samsung packs a lot of bloatware in their Android versions but brand is reliable and compatible with everything).
