LG P970

 

Hey gang,

 

O.k. here is what I got. I bought a LG P970 in Hong Kong back in July. The phone is unlocked. I bring it home put the SIM in it and the phone worked but withissues. Firstly the call drop out and no internet. SO I contact LG and they send me the following;



You would need to check with AT&T about reconfiguring the Handset so that it can get Internet and send/receive Picture and Video messages.

This would need to be done to your WAP and Browser Settings if it is ti work here in the US.

.You would need to get the Codes to permanently allow the LGP70 to work on an AT&T Network from AT&T as LG USA will not have those Codes available for such a purpose.

 

Ok now I contact ATT and I get this from them;

 

 In review of your inquiry, I found that AT&T does not support or answer questions about non-AT&T devices, since AT&T does not possess support material for these devices. Please refer to the manufacturer's Web site for support and warranty assistance. Since your device has not been tested on the AT&T network with AT&T services or SIMs, you may experience the following issues: Reduced coverage areas if their device does not support 850MHz and 1900MHz radio frequency bands, or has special embedded software to manage network selection. AT&T generally uses the 850MHz band. The AT&T SIM may not function correctly with your device. At worst, the device may constantly reboot when powered on. Increased number of dropped or incomplete calls when dialed because the device does not meet the much higher RF standard that AT&T requires. The message waiting indicator (MWI) may not work correctly and notify the user when there is a voicemail message waiting. The user may experience issues with carrier-specific keys on your device (e.g., T-Zones from T-Mobile or former AT&T Wireless) that are tied to carrier specific services. These services do not work on the AT&T network. The user is not able to download ringtones or wallpapers from the AT&T content server since the device is not recognized by the AT&T content server. Downloaded games may not function correctly since they require a specific Java certificate (a security element, customized for each carrier) on the device in order to operate. The AT&T name may not display correctly on the device when in idle mode.



It is my understand from all the reading I have been doing this phone can function in the US. I need help configuring the phone. I love this phone!!! Any information will greatly be appreciated.

Yes this is what I ma looking for, However, I have found other APN  to what you linked me with some variations.  I will try this as well. Do you know why calls drop out The phone carries the correct bandwidth for ATT. DO you think the APN could be the issue? Thank you very much for post your comment!!!  Smiley Very Happy
