Re: How do I set up data/APN on my smartphone?

Re: How do I set up data/APN on my smartphone?

Hey all, 

 

I just activated my data using the post above for my Samsung Note 4.

 

**I inserted my SIM card before activating the data. 

 

I did have issues activating my data following the directions. What I did was: Settings>More Networks>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names>(make sure Public mobile is selected).

 

Press back select Network operators>Search networks>(select Public Mobile).

 

Then reset your phone.

 

Congrats! Welcome to Public Mobile!

Re: How do I set up data/APN on my smartphone?

This data/apn thing appears to keep on keeping on ;-)

 

So, for AMPLIFICATION,,,

 

While true in all cases, it is particularly true for people porting over from other carriers where their prior carrier would have APN profile, that there should be only one only carrier and one only profile where the "APN TYPE=" has the attribute "defualt"

 

For example,

 

APN type: default,mms

 

You should (1) remove the "default" from your old carrier's APN profile, and (2) then SAVE that.  I have seen cases where simply deleting the old carrier's profile doesn't quite accomplish the same thing. Then, along with the other good stuff, configure the "default" into the Public Mobile APN profile.  Remember: no spaces!

I have the similar moto g phones. Looking to switch from wind...and my speeds are definitely slower than 2 seconds to load a webpage. I've had enough of wind

Welcome soon-to-be ex-Wind mobile user @euro1970!

I was with them since near their beginning, and I myself made the switch a few months ago. Let me tell you... it's nice to be able to look something up right away rather than sitting there looking at the screen in frustration waiting for something to happen.

LTE is beautiful.  You'll wonder why you didn't make the switch sooner.

Re: How do I set up data/APN on my smartphone?

I tried this on my samsung s4 and my data still would not work so I tried to purchase another phone LG G3 and the data didn't work on that phone either. Thank you

Re: How do I set up data/APN on my smartphone?

So... I think I got this right.. (Moto G, Android 5.1 and I'm migrating from Fido)... I followed instructions, i rebooted phone. My APN Settings and my APN Tethering Settings are same as the earlier detailed posts on this topic (as pasted below).

 

Any ways to confirm/test that setup is all complete and correct? The phone displays mobile network is Public Mobile (in status bar at top) and turning off wifi and using data, i can access many web pages.. so i assume all is good? Thanks for any help.

Re: How do I set up data/APN on my smartphone?

Usually this information can be found online by searching the exact phone model. It is important to lookat the specific one as models with codes differing y a single digit may have all different capabilities. Be wary of international models of phones as well! Always important to do your research before making purchases with finicky things like technology! (:
