Phone: alcatel go flip
Bought the phone with Videotron originally.
Currently, I'm only getting 1-2 network bars.
I'm trying to set up the NPA but I'm not sure it's right since I'm still only getting 1-2 bars.
Is this normal ? I'm in quebec... I chose the unlimited Quebec calls (no need for text messages or data).
I just want the network to work right on my phone.
Should I try doing the APN settings again ? Or could there be another issue ?
Thanks for helping.
