Hi all, I have just received my FP3- I am in the UK and ordered it on contract from the co-operative phone company. I can’t start using my new Sim from the Co-op until next Tues when the phone number from my current Sim will have been transferred across. In the meantime I am using my old Sim (from Giffgaff) in my new phone. Phone calls, Wi-Fi and texts work just fine. However, I can’t use data.
I’m sure this is a carrier issue rather than a FP3 issue so have asked both co-op and Giffgaff for help but thought I would post here as well. Does anyone have any thoughts on the substantive differences between FP2 and 3 that might lead to my FP2 sim not working in the 3? So far I have:
- ensured the APN settings are the same as they were in my fp2
- turned off enhanced 4g LTE mode
- Changed the preferrws network type to 2g/3g auto as fp2 didn’t have 4g
If I can’t make it work I’ll just switch back to my fp2 until Tues but thought I would see if anyone has any ideas first!
