Setting up 4Freedom Mobile SIM card (Android)
First, insert the SIM card into the device.
Go to Settings Select Network & internet
Select Mobile network
Activate Mobile data
If you see a pop-up, click ‘OK’
If you have a US & European SIM card, please skip to Step 15
Once Mobile Data and Roaming are activated,
Tap Advanced, near the bottom of the screen
After tapping Advanced,
Scroll down until Access Point Names is visible
Select Access Point Names
On APNs screen
Tap the + symbol in the top-right of the screen
to add a new APN
Enter a Name for the APN
You can give the APN whatever Name you want
Tap APN and enter either globaldata or tn1. Both of these work.
For the US & European SIM card the APN “internet” should already be set for you. If for some reason it has not been automatically set, then please set it.
After entering Name and APN
Pls be sure to save the new APN you created
To save the APN,
Tap the 3 vertical dots in the top-right corner

After saving the new APN,
Exit out of the APNs menu

To test the connection to the mobile network,
Deactivate WiFi (if it has been activated)
At the top right of the screen,
Signal strength should be visible
And you should see 5G, 4G+, 4G or LTE
If you see a small capital letter ‘R’,
please ignore it.
If at the top right of the screen,
Signal strength is not visible or is very low,
Or if you see 3G,
Most likely your device has not yet updated its connection settings.
Please turn the device off for 60 seconds
And then turn it back on again.
This will cause the device to re-register on the networks, and you should see 5G or 4G LTE appear.
Finally, you may test that connectivity
Is working well by opening a browser and
Going to 4freedommobile.com
If the site loads quickly, then the 4Freedom Mobile SIM card is working correctly.
