Hello,

After doing the above, order a PM SIM card. It will take approximately 3 working days to 3 weeks to receive one.

Go to the homepage, and you will see information pertaining to ordering a SIM card.

Cheers.

^In Correct answer. You will not be able to do what you said until an active working PM Sim is in the Device.

Hello,

Are you aware that your phone is 3G only, and cannot operate on 4G LTE frequencies?

No I was not. I went to the store, told them my carrier, and voila. Their customer service rivals only that of the new Public Mobile. It would be easier if the Phone Checker thingy didn't require information you can only get FROM THE BOX or ACTUAL phone. You know... those things you don't have access to until YOU BUY IT. No where on the box does it indicate its G status. Back to the store.

Thanks Martin, you were actually helpful.
