Re: Oukitel C17

Do you guys mean switch over to FreedomMobile all together? or use the Freedom sim card to change the APN? If so, how?

No don't switch to Freedom we want you here 😂

 

However they are saying you will need a Freedom mobile sim card to be able to update the APN settings to get your data to work on Public Mobile. A ROAM mobile sim card may also do the trick.

@s1000 I mean, if a friend is with Freedom, borrow the SIM and stick it into your phone. Then access your APN settings. Once you set the correct PM settings, save them, turn the phone off, Replace with the PM SIM and restart.

That is correct. Once you put in the other vendor sim card, you can program the APN.

Remove the vendor sim card and insert Public's sim card.

No go, thanks.  If I can use any other sim card, what about using my prior Telus sim card?

Your Telus SIM card wouldn't help. There's something about Freedom and Roam SIM cards that allow APN settings to be changed on such devices.

 @tavesone : You're jumping in to several threads. Did you try the app I linked in one of the other threads you were in?

Re: Oukitel C17

I am unable to get a Freedom sim card where I live.  Do you think a Virgin Mobility sim might work?  I can get one for $3 on Amazon.
