@Kvalderrama  If you use one of the following sims you can add an APN entry to a Android 8.1 phone:

 

Freedom Mobile

Roam.com

Fizz

Speakout?

 

Once the APN is added then insert your PM sim and it should work. If you don't have any of the above sims just go to a Freedom Mobile booth and ask them for one to test reception and add the APN as follows:


Name: Public Mobile
APN: sp.mb.com
Proxy: Leave blank
Port: Leave blank
Username: Leave blank
Password: Leave blank
Server: Leave blank
MMSC: http://aliasredirect.net/proxy/mb/mmsc
MMSC proxy: 74.49.0.18
MMS port: 80
MCC: 302
MNC: 220
Authentication type: Leave blank
APN type: default,mms,agps,supl,fota,hipri
APN protocol: IPv4
APN roaming protocol: IPv4
Bearer: Unspecified
MVNO type: GID
MVNO value: 4D4F

Don't forget to save these setting.

Re: Can´t setting my APN

@Kvalderrama @APN settings is greyed out on Oreo version is a known problem. You will need to upgrade to higher version or downgrade to see that option available.

Re: Can´t setting my APN

Hi guys! Thanks a lot for your help. Finally, I merged that will13am and geopublic told me and I fixed it!

First: I used the adb shell to add a new apn. It was a little complicated because I thought I had to reboot in bootloader mode so nothing happened. Then I turn on normally my phone and I did it all again and I realized that when I enter the command in adb shell to add a new apn, a new apn appeared on my phone, but greyed out; and when I started to write the commands to set up this new apn, I could do it on my phone directly.

Second: I use exactly what geopublic said, first I tried with the parameters that PM says but it didn't work. The system gives me this message: "the operator does not allow adding an of type*", but I press the home button.

 

That works for me! Thanks again and HAPPY CANADA DAY! Finally, I can enjoy life again hahaha

Re: Can´t setting my APN

Is it for just internet? You have to make it 3g on server slot

APN settings don't do anything for calls or text messaging.  What do you mean by server slot?  The APN settings are the same regardless of your plan or and whether you're connected to the LTE or 3g network.
