Picked-up a used unlocked phone, put the Public SIM card in, but data doesnt seem to be working? Any suggestions? Have I missed a step (or two), or should it just work?
Any feedback greatly appreciated....
For data to work make sure cellular data is on and your apn settings are correct.
do one thing Make sure your phone is off before removing your SIM card,
and do rebooting your phone take your SIM card out and waiting for a 2 minute and put it back and turn on -This one is quick and simple.
what is mean for Rebooting the phone means to turn off your phone and turn it back on again.
or can you do try reseat the SIM card
1. power off your device
2. take out the SIM card,
3. wipe it clean SIM card,
4. put it back and power on,
5. toggling airplane mode off/on,
and do again Rebooting your phone means to turn off your phone and turn it back on again.

@jrprvs2000 just data not working? how about calls and text? incoming and outgoing?
What do you see on the top of the screen? do you see Public Mobile? and the signal level?
If it is just data, it is APN issue. What kind of phone is that ? brand and model?
If iPhone, you might need to plug the phone to a computer, launch iTune to download the latest update and carrier profile
If it is an LG, you might have to do a network reset
if it is other brands and model , let us know.
