Do the APN settings stay up to date?

So, my wife switched to Public Mobile today (yay!). But she can't get access to her data. And (after much research) with the ASUS Zenfone 4 Max you can't just switch it on the phone. So we have to do it manually through her laptop. I think I have the whole ADB thing figured out, but I just want to verify I have the correct APN settings to put in there. So, could anyone verify what the correct settings are? Thank you in advance!

Re: Do the APN settings stay up to date?

Well, after 4 hours of wrangling with the ADB shell (why can't everything work like it says it will in tutorials?) and getting it going, entering in the info was a breeze. I also had to use 3 GB or the 5GB of data with my plan. So.....I had to use public Mobile's data to get public Mobile's data to work🤔. Anyway, thanks for the help! I appreciate it! Hoping I can add data🙏

@The_Stig Do a cost analysis.. depending on your plan and your usage, you can also renew early.

So why is Public Mobile to Blame here?  On any phone in order for internet to work you have to enter the correct settings for the cell phone provider you are using to make it work. Some phones those settings are Auto Generated and some phones you have to Manually enter them. 

 

FYI. If you have to Manually enter them you are not consuming your included data that is part of the Plan. However once entered and you start using the internet you are obviously now using your included Data/Gigs.

The first answer has a link in it for the settings. Worked like a charm!

Didn't mean to make it sound like PM had any fault here. It's the manufacturer or the OS's fault. I had to use data because I needed to make my phone a hotspot for my wife's laptop in order to download the correct tools for the phone. We downloaded the whole Android suite, which was a bit of overkill.

There’s a tiny software that I’m currently using can add new APN setting on Asus Zonfone 4 Max .

That's not indicated anywhere in the OP's messages!
