Post How to setup 3G data on uPlay PhonePad Gen 3

uPlay PhonePad works out of box for phone calls, but you need to set it up for your carrier's data network in order to use its 3G data network to access Internet. Usually the data network is preset by your carrier when they sell you Android phones. Since you get an unlocked phone tablet directly from us, you have to set it up yourself.

In general setting up data network for uPlay PhonePad is the same as setting up any Android phone. You just have to fill the APN settings.

1. Open "Settings" -> "Wireless & network settings"->"Mobile network settings". Make sure "Data enabled" is checked.
2. Click "GSM/UMTS Options", then "Access Point Names". Press "Menu" key (one of the keys at the bottom of uPlay PhonePad screen showing four squares) to bring up menu for this page. Then click "New APN".
3. Fill the APN settings for your carrier. We list APN settings for AT&T and T-Mobile in the following. If you have a different carrier, you can google "<your carrier's name> Android Phone APN" to search their settings, or call them to ask the right settings.
4. Click "menu" button to bring up menu, and click "Save" to save APN settings. Once you save it, you should see it in the APN profile list. If you don't see it in the APN list, it won't work. You may have multiple APS profile. You have to make sure you select the right one for your current SIM card.

You say that the phone works "out of the box," but don't I need to buy a SIM card that works with the mobile carrier I choose?

Hey,

Sorry for the delayed response, the phone does indeed work out of the box, ready for you to insert your SIM as per the instructions above.

If you wish to use a mobile carrier then yes, you will of course need to provide a SIM card in order to be able to do that. Out of the box means no further configuration for phone calls, but yes, like every other mobile phone device, you insert your own SIM.

Hey and thanks for your patience, I wanted to look properly in to this for you.

I can confirm that, as per our product page, the exact supported requirements for any network are:

GSM: 900/1800Mhz and WCDMA: 1900Mhz

We do note that it works with AT&T and some T-Mobile 3G carriers. I would speak to T-Mobile and provide to them the specs above, and whether they can provide you with a more compatible SIM.
