exacly speaking, you need to check settings from a carrier, like from the website.

for most carriers apn: "internet" works, other settings could be blank.

if you have previous device, then you could check what those settings were, sim card swapping might be required.

following link is bloated: https://android.googlesource.com/device/sample/+/master/etc/apns-full-conf.xml
this link includes default settings for average android device, because it is provided by google or device manufacturer, settings could be wrong.

i don't totally get this point. pinephone has only one sim slot. do you mean secondary to wifi? networkmanager can use what's available.

you didn't say what o.s. (mobian, postmarketos, manjaro, etc) and user interface (plasma, phosh, sxmo). if plasma, i noticed that mobiledata barely works, actually it didn't. i couldn't set settings at all.

if operator has blocked mobile data, then it's calls only (and sms). you have to stick to the wifi (or ethernet).
