[Q] Using Cell (Nexus4) + Telus Flex (for ipad) + VOIP (Fongo). APN Configuration
turns out that Telus somehow makes your phone switch from isp.telus.com to sp.telus.com. You must delete any SP.Telus.com APNs. Just to be saved, I deleted all the preset APN's and added my own with no Proxy or Port no. **additionally, i had a security app that was sending texts that there was an unauthorized SIM in my phone. If you have any security app in your phone, make sure you log into it and register the SIM, otherwise it will send texts using the tablets number which will be very expensive.
Hello. This is my first post and I'm sorry if i break any rules, but I haven't found any solution after several days of research.
I have a Nexus 4, Root, Cyanogenmod 10.3, 4.3.
Today I went to Telus and got a SIM that i said was for an ipad so that i could use a Data-only Flex plan with Voip app (Fongo).
I have used this for about a year with Fido, but I liked the Flex bracketing used by Telus.
When I put the SIM in the phone, I went straight to The APN settings. there were three APNs there, one sp.kooddo, one sp.telus, and one isp.telus. I know ipads require the APN isp.telus.com so i selected the last (isp.telus.com), however after use of 1mb, my account showed pay-per-use usage amounting to $6. the preset isp.telus is named "Telus SP Tether." I'm thinking the problem might still be in the APN name. I deleted both the sp.telus ones just to be extra safe.
I added an APN as recommended on the Telus site for ipads/tablets:
the preset isp.telus.com (Telus SP Tether) had proxy and port empty, but their MMA proxy and MMS port had the above settings.
I don't know if this is was the problem.
There was one thread on XDA about successful setup of Telus tablet flex data SIM in GS3, however, i could not follow their steps because of different menu functionality in the N4. (thread
OP recomended to make APN, then press BACL instead of SAVE, and then select Radio Button. But if i go back without saving, the APN is cleared and there is no Radio Button.
Telus had put $10 worth of charges for text messages i didn't send. I had Telus block sending and receiving texts, but they still go through and get charged. strangely it's to my moms and borthers cells and its at exact same times (to the second) (e.g. Telus has it that I sent 7 messages at exactly each of these times to both contacts: 3:00:00, 4:00:00, 5:00:00, and 10:00:00). I have no idea what these are....
Additionally, Telus never asked for my IMEI (Fido did require an IMEI of an ipad). when i called in to Telus, they read back the IMEI they had, and it was of the N4. could they be blocking me access to FLEX plan and forcing me into pay as you go?
Thank you for all your help.
