Working modem?

Well, after many months of trying to get this thing to work, I think I'm ready to give up on it.

Hi, I can try to help Cool  .

1. Who is your service provider?
2. What is your geographic region?
3. Exactly which Phosh OS are you using now? (Should be Mobian, IMO)

O.T.M. (Other Than Mobian) distros were very difficult to get 4G up and running.

Cheers!

In my experience, only the Mobian image can handle incoming calls from suspend currently. (eg25-manager)

From time to time cellular connection will get lost and you need to reboot.

The problem already occurred one year ago, several developers work on a solution.

1. Straightalk. the APN is simply RESELLER.
2. Southern California.
3. I installed Arch a few days ago but I had Mobian just before that.

I'll reinstall Mobian.

He is right. There has been a lot of updates roll out in Mobian. It seems to be the most reliable right now with the modem and call handling.

Try this apn: ACCT.TF.GW6.VZWENTP

Here is a link to all the straight talk apn's for each network network/tower you may be trying to connect to.

It's AT&T not Verizon. Quite sometime back they changed the APN from tfdata to reseller. Using reseller absolutely works in my Android phone.

I got Mobian reinstalled and updated. Took the sim card out of my other phone, put it in the PinePhone, set the APN and it showed 4G with full bars. Started Firefox, navigated to a page and got "Server not found".

You have to turn Mobile Data on via an on / toggle in the settings. Hopefully that works.
Pinephone v1.2 UBports CE. Adelaide, Australia using Aldimobile SIM with Mobian SD card.
Manjaro Plasma Mobile on EMMC.
