My cell provider is PureTalk, an AT&T reseller. I cannot get mobile data to work reliably. Sometimes their tech support will get it working, but it eventually stops. Any advice? Do I need to change providers?
Hi @jalbright318 is your teracube 2e is 2021 model or 2022 model? Are you running teracube’s stock rom? And as I think you’re having issues with mobile data, can you try resetting APNs to default?
Changing providers is like playing roulette, and will be costly. Non of these providers have been playing it straight with their customers since the 3G take down. From PureTalks website: Are you using these settings?
If there’s anything else in the settings…delete them.
My teracube 2e is 2022 model. I do not know how to determine whether I am “running teracube’s stock rom” - can you advise? I tried resetting the APNs to default, and then selected Pure Tallk USA. Then restarted my phone. I now have mobile data - slow, though. And based on experience, will stop working after a while.
Thank you for this information. I wish Teracube would let people know before they buy that this phone will not work with all carriers, so we can make an informed decision. I am not sure I would have sprung for this phone had I known, as switching carriers will more than double my monthly cell bill, and I am a retiree on a fixed income.
Thank you for this information. I reset everything accordingly, and now have mobile data. Very slow, and based on prior experience, not likely to “stick.” For other readers, the link to above settings is: Data Issues | APN Settings | PureTalk, since screen snapshot above is difficult to read.
As I noted prior, it appears this is a chronic problem with some carriers and may be only fixed by switching to a T-Mobile network, which will more than double my cell bill… sigh…
Hi @jalbright318 - how much are you paying for Puretalk? There are many affordable TMobile-based carriers.
- Tello (tello.com) starts at $5/mo and has 1GB unlimited plans at $10/mo
- RedPocket plans start at $10/mo
- Mint Mobile is $15/mo with an annual payment
- TMobile prepaid starts at $15/mo for a 2 GB plan
Thank you so much for this information - I will check them out! Seems like it is the best solution.
Sounds good. If you go with RedPocket, ask for their “GSMT” SIM (TMobile based).
