Re: Just got an Oukitel K6 and it won't connect to the network

It is a 4G LTE phone


That's just one part of Public Mobile. And in this case only one of the Public Mobile frequencies used. To use your phone as a phone, it needs to have a couple 3G/WCDMA/UMTS/HSDPA frequencies. This phone does not.

So as I said, if you can find and connect to a tower transmitting on that one frequency and LTE protocol then you could use your data and SMS and MMS.

You're showing all the same info. It's not enough just to say it's 3G or WCDMA or 4G or LTE. It's more about the frequencies and bands used.

Pretty much useless phone in Canada. Expensive mp3 player. See if you can return it as it would be pretty hard to sell.

@adronis this is the problem.  You need a phone with W-CDMA 850 and 1900 MHz to use here.

And they're going to be obsoleting their 2G GSM soon.
