Instructions to get pinephone working on USA carrier.

My pinephone cusrrently works on a USA carrier as of this posting.
Below are instructions.

Model: pinephone (should work with pro version because it has the same modem)
File system: full encryption
OS: Mobian (fully updated) (supports VoLTE) (mobian-project.org)
Carrier: H2Owireless (h2owireless.com)
APN: att.mvno (H2Owireless runs on the AT&T network)

Get a sim card from H2Owireless.
(You can give your pinephone IMEI number and they should tell you that it is compatible with their network.)

Voicemail:
Call your own phone number to access the voicemail system.
(For example, if your phone number is 1234567890 then dial 1234567890.)
(I just create a contact labeled "voicemail" with my phone number.)
(You can setup a voicemail password if it is your first time accessing the voicemail system.)
When someone leaves you a voicemail, you will get a text message from phone number 1000000000.
This text message will be full of code.
Just pay atention to the value of "m".
"m" represents how many unread voicemail messages you have.

MMS:
You do not get any notification when you get an MMS.
If you get too many MMS messages, it will prevent you from getting SMS messages.
To check if you have any MMS messages, use the command "mmcli".
You can also use this command to delete the MMS messages.
(Please do not ask me how to use "mmcli".)
If you need MMS support, I suggest the following link.

MMS on mobian should work as of Feb or Mar '22 if chatty is configured appropriately.  Does AT&T use separate APNs for MMS and regular data?
