    If you're using an unsupported carrier, you will have to work it out with them.

    my phone  is  locked  in that carrier  and  im not  allowed  to  use other carrier  now  im   try    to  restore  again

    If you are using a carrier locked phone with the carrier it is locked to, there is no need to change any settings on the phone. All of the settings for ALL supported carriers are already in the phone.


    If the data network is not working correctly, they do not have something provisioned correctly on your account.

    they tell me that my  phone have  a   cellular data  network  but it  really  dont   appear  in  my  setting  i can see  only  the  cellular data on/off

  • KiltedTim Level 9 (50,320 points)

    Yes... that's how you turn it on and off. If it's on and you subscribe to a data plan, then you are on the cellular data network.


    What did you expect to see?

  • kimtones Level 1 (0 points)

    im not using a data plan  only prepaid they tell te  to  find  the  cellular data network to fix my apn settings coz in my  phone signal bar its also dont have a  3g

    If you do not have a data plan, you can't get cellular data. What did oyu expect to happen? You don't magically get service you're not paying for.


    You can not have cellular data unless you pay for it.
