Looking for a cheap first phone for my daughter, and I'm wanting to confirm that this phone will be compatable with Public.

 

Amazon.ca link: Alcatel Tetra

 

I'm thinking it is based on the info given, but I'm pretty noob when it comes to cell phones.

It should work but it looks like it comes with Android 8.1 which means it may be a little difficult to set up your APN.

What does that mean? The APN comment?

 

I've.ordered the phone so I hope there is a way to make it work.

APN refers device settings that need to be set correctly to use mobile data.

Sorry I should have been more specific.  

 

I understand the need to set APN settings... Just worried now about the comment that the OS on this phone may make that problematic.

 

I've searched the forums and see lots of discussions on it... Crossing fingers I'll be able to get this phone to work 

Android 8.0 and 8.1 have been difficult, but not impossible to update.  You'll get through it, and we're here to help.
