Using a New Phone with an Active Account

I'm trying to set up a New Phone on an Active Account- 
I choose Automatic Network in Setting but it says try again Later.


Sim Management is Turned on to TELUS and Shows Phone Number

All voice Call/Video Call/ Messaging is Greyed Out

TELUS (3G)

Etc..etc...


___________________________________________________

3G Service
Network Mode 4G

2G/3G (auto)

3G only
4G (which is Selected)

I've Toggled with the these but to no Avail.
It is also Dual SIM and I've Tried the Other Slot

 

____________________________________________________________

I've Seen another Post which someone suggests they top up their PM Account with $1

to perhaps "Refresh" - Which I haven't tried - Do you think it could be the Problem in this Senario?


The Phone is an Android V.8 -M20 which was bought from China
I'm pretty sure when I bought this phone last year the FREQ was Good for PM...

Query:
Should I have to go to my PM Account to Change or Re-Enter Information?


Thanks everyone.

Re: Using a New Phone with on an Account

What is the brand of phone ?   Public Mobile uses the following frequency bands: 4G LTE and LTE Advanced: 700 MHz, 850 MHz, 1900 MHz and 2100 MHz downlink and 1700 MHz uplink (AWS). HSPA: 850 MHz, 1900 MHz (UMTS).

 

If your phone is compatible then you should be able to put in the sim over.

I guess you are saying it does not work with PM?
(though it shows Telus Network)

I also have a Galaxy GT ..(7530)? - I'll see if I can find the SIM SLOT and try that one....

M20 should have enough bands  to work.  I had another phone with the same bands and working ok in GTA area..
