Samsung Galaxy Advanced from Europe can't connect to Data

Hello!

 

I just moved from Europe to Canada and bought a Fido-SIM-card yesterday!

Unfortunately the mobile internet just won't work!

The phone I'm using is a Samsung Galaxy Advanced (I never had problems to use the mobile internet in Europe... WLAN still works).

 

I followed this guide here:

https://www.fido.ca/web/content/phonewarranty/configure_unlocked_device_guide

But that doesn't solve any problems... everything seems to be fine!

 

I would really appreciate your help!!!

(doesn't make sense otherwise to pay so much money a month without being able to use the internet)

Can you enable Data Roaming in your settings? Sounds weird, since you're not roaming, but sometimes the phone can think it's roaming if it's not on its "home" network.

 

Keep us posted!

Hi anerev and welcome to the Community!

 

That phone is compatible with our 2G and 3G frequencies, so you should be using the Fido-core-appl1.apn  APN. Is that the one you are trying with or did you enter the LTEMOBILE.APN one?

 

Let us know Smiley

Thanks a lot for your reply!!

Really happy to hear that my phone is compatible (in theory, at least)...

Yeah, I used the fido-core-appl1.apn...

Is there something else I could try?

 

Thanks!!
