FAQ

I am using an Android phone. I have entered the given settings for Android to my handset. But it did not work. I have also tried general settings in my Android device but in vain. Please help me.
It may be due to an error in your APN Settings. Make sure that you are entering the values in the right case. If you see “att.mvno” for APN name, you cannot add “Att.mvno” or “ATT.MVNO” in the given field. You need to add the values as they are. These are case sensitive values in fact. Enter them to the right field in the right case.
I have rechecked my APN values. Even, I have rebooted my iPhone twice. But nothing happens. Please guide me.
You need to check not only the values’ case but also the dash, comma, and dot between these values. Don’t miss any punctuation sign because they are very important. Furthermore, don’t skip any spaces. Check the punctuation signs and re-enter the values if the previous is not working.
I am not getting the desired 4G LTE speed. Please help me on how to acquire this speed.
Make sure that you are present in a covered area where Consumer Cellular provides the 4G LTE network services. If it does not provide these services in your locality, you cannot get this speed. Check the coverage map on the official website of Consumer Cellular.

Consumer Cellular provides the 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE network services by using te host networks of AT&T and T-Mobile.
