Before I bought this phone, I read about edge, H, 3G and 4G compatibility, and everything was ok with its specifications.
Once I got the phone, I inserted my SIM and it auto-configure the phone, and I could call my friends, connect via wi-fi, send message, etc... the only problem I found was that I couldn't connect by data mobile, I checked the APN settings and it was ok. I did a factory data reset and it didn't change.
I have been reading a lot here and I found that this could be because EU restriction, but everywhere I read this, it seems like any functionality works when it's the case. I also saw that this could be solve rooting my phone and installing a ROM.
This phone was factory unclocked, without carrier and inside its box with the label from france.
could someone help me with this, is this normal o I need to return my phone and change it?
I'm sorry if there was a topic related with this, I looked up for it and I didn't find it.
