The APN setting is the gateway between your carrier's cellular network and the public Internet. The APN setting - if not set automatically by the user's OS - has to be set by the user to enable the use of the mobile Internet on the phone.

Setting the APN

The location of the APN setting depend on the user interface the distribution is using.

Distributions with Phosh

APN settings are either located in Settings > Mobile > Access Point Names (Arch Linux ARM, PureOS, Debian + Phosh) or Settings > Network > Network Dropdown > Add new connection (pmOS, Fedora).

Carriers that do not work

FreedomPop (USA)

VoIP-service. Customer service said they require Android 4.3+, and their free calling and texting works only with the Google Play app they make you use. So calls and texts don't work with non-smart phones and won't work with the PinePhone (even though it is a smart phone) because of software incompatibility. However, the data part still work if APN has been seen correctly set to fp.com.attz. You get 200MB free data per month. However, please watch out that you will get ding by $20 top up charge when over 200MB limit.

APN: fp.com.attz

Sprint (USA)

Sprint is currently not supported due to unknown issues, see also PinePhone Carrier Support#Sprint. Any input regarding this issue is highly appreciated.

APN: cinet.spcs

Visible (USA)

Visible does not have any way to approve unsupported phones, it might be possible through APN settings, but requires more research and dev time. Even activating a SIM using a supported phone, and then moving it to the Pinephone does not work.

Other

Other VoLTE services.
