New Zealand network providers mobile data
#1
Hi there,

I just want to know if anyone in nz has successfully connected to mobile data and what provider it was with.

I have not been able to edit the APN this may be due to my inexperience.

The error message that shows regarding the mobile data is...

Modem (quectelqmi_0)
The modem shows no carrier


The phone does connect to a carrier and I have successfully made a phone call, I have not yet however managed to get cell data working

Look forward to any responses Smile

After remembering that the hardware switch was turned off, I switched it on - the network then turned on, found 4G, downloaded the APN settings (automagically), and got going. I sent this message using Mobian, on (Vodafone) mobile data Smile

since posting this thread i have tried all major mobile providers.

spark
skinny
2degrees
vodafone

results are that they all work. for data, calls and sms. the mobile data is not reliable, but it does work. i wil post more detail of my experience later as im using the Pinephone for this forum post and dont want the connection to drop.
