Network not available

My father bought a new unlocked Kyocera DuraForce XD E6790 phone and when we put his SIM in and add the APN it gives a 'Network not available' error. He has an older Kyocera phone that it works just fine in. I put my SIM in and it detects I have call forwarding enabled (which I do) but no network connectivity. I also tried putting my work SIM in (Telus) and added the Telus APN which it detected voicemails and again no network. Is there a setting we're missing or could the phone possibily be locked?

 

Thanks,

Oracle

Re: Network not available

What message appears on the phone after rebooting with the PM SIM installed?

Does his SIM work in your phone?

I check the specs of Kyocera DuraForce XD E6790 on gsmarena.  

https://www.gsmarena.com/kyocera_duraforce_xd-7699.php

It got all the frequencies required by PM.

 

Network reset may get the data going again similar to LG phone.

I am running out of idea.  But it worth a try.

Sounds like a locked phone. Try looking into the settings and see if there is a provider linked with it, or dial and call *611 to the current provider and have it unlocked.

You could also verify phone can work on Public Mobile by inserting IMEI number on their website just to narrow it down a little.

Additionally, I have an iphone 5s operating on old ios 7 software so I needed to visit unlockit.co.nz to install the appropriate APN settings - I couldn't do it manually.

@DanZap for future reference, this is bad advice.  The checker on PM's site is horribly inaccurate for compatibility, and has a long history of giving false positives.  It is still a useful check to verify that your phone is not blacklisted, but ignore anything it tells you about compatbility, and instead use https://www.willmyphonework.net.  This is the community preferred advice and leads to far fewer heartaches from people thinking their phones will work but don't.
