If you're asking about the app to change APNs, there's one in the RFD forum post linked earlier in this thread. I wouldn't use an app someone just threw together and posted on google drive personally. If you need to change APN settings and the phone won't let you, I'd go the adb route.

Re: Public Mobile Will Not Allow APN Settings Android 8.1

I think Janterry has THE EASIEST and SIMPLEST solution!  Did exactly what he said and problem solved!  I had a unefone sim card laying around from Mexico. Put it in and, surprise!  Was able to edit and add APNs!!!! Took it out afterwards and inserted PM sim card and.... WOW!!! PM was there in the APNs. Just had to select it and voilà!!! Got a fully functionning android 8.1 phone!!! Phone & data!  This solution should be posted and easily available/found because many people seem to have this kind of problem. No need to hack your phone or download software. This is an easy solution accessible to non computer-geeks! Have a nice day and pass the word!

No need to download ADB and start tweeking around in the phone. The easy and accessible to everyone solution is to change sim card for one that allows apn addition/editing. I had a unefone sim (Mexico) and was able to add PM's parameters and save them. Inserted back PM's card and voilà!  Everything works perfectly!  Have a nice day!

Re: Public Mobile Will Not Allow APN Settings Android 8.1

Hi,

My problem is somewhat the same but not andriod based.

I use an old Nokia flipphone   (because I want to).

When I try to get on the internet my phone says "subscribe to packet data first".

I had this same prob before with Telus but their girls in customer service were able to cure it.

If I put my PM sim card in my i5s I can create a hotspot.

Anybody have any advice?

Thanks.

No idea but if you needed Telus support to resolve it before click this: https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/notes/composepage/note-to-user-id/22437 to send a private message to the moderator team with a description of your issue. Sometimes they answer within in 24 hours, but usually take several days.

What exact make/model/submodel is that Nokia?

You'll need to enter proper APN settings to connect to data. The phone also has to be compatible with data carrying frequencies here.

@OreckI think the Nokia phone you are talking about uses GPRS packet radio. Unfortunately that protocol is not used by Public Mobile.

The model # on my Nokia flip-phone is Nokia 3710.
