Hi,

 

My conclusion is something is blocking me from Public Mobile; LTE). For whatever reason it will not register the LTE network. I have reached out to mods with my data issue but it is extremely slow.

 

Has anyone experienced an issue where they cannot connect to the LTE portion of PM? I can select the other one (Public Mobile: WCDMA)

 


@diane_h  Yes, this can happen when the LTE signal is weak. This is my situation at home and I leave my phone permanently set to 3G only.

Advantages:

- Signal is more stable

- 3G is required for voice calls anyway

- 3G is often faster than the throttled LTE

 

Disadvantage:

- LTE usually better latency, but I can't tell the difference

You mentioned being able to use talk and text but unable to connect to LTE.  Not being able to register on the network is a totally different problem.

3g and LTE are different networks. Does can't register mean you can't call or text now?

Lots of people use LG phones on Public Mobile. You can call and text so it's compatible. Your  data works when you put your Public sim in, so this is a a problem with your LG phone. With the right settings, it should work.  Can you call LG 1-888-542-2623 and ask for help?

Were you ever able to test with a whole other carrier SIM in this phone?

Since you had that brief period of time with data, can you look at your overview data counter now? Do you see a data counter under My Data & Add-ons?
