Microsoft Lumia 435
Answered

I'm using a Lumia 435 (unlocked T-Mobile phone) with Ting GSM, and it works great for voice and texting. Its WIFI also works fine. However, oddly, the cellular data seems to work for some things and not others. For example, maps, traffic, and the weather app all work fine on data alone. But data will not update my calendar (which does update when I get in Wifi range), and I can't seem to get group texts. Any ideas?

  • Hey James!

    You want to make sure that your APN settings are filled in properly. Take a look at this article here to confirm everything is set up accordingly -- https://help.ting.com/hc/en-us/articles/205428698-GSM-Android-APN-Settings

  • Thanks. Using the alternate APN settings seems to have solved the problem with picture messaging. I was misdiagnosing the problem with the calendar, which is really caused by the delay in Outlook.com's updating the calendar with data from subscribed calendars. 

    FWIW, I really like this windows phone, which is compact, inexpensive, and easy to use, but getting the calendar to work required some workarounds.
