Hello, First off, the changes brought in 1.0.7.16 are awesome. I am now using LTE in Canada (Rogers - Greater Toronto Area). One thing I noticed is that before I could use LTE data I had to change my APN. Now, when my data falls back to 2G, I no longer have access to the internet because the APN settings for 2G/4G are different.

I think it would be good to be able to fast swap APN profiles, or even tie profiles to different frequencies or something so that it auto swaps the APN profile when enter/leaving 4G.

Thanks.

Hmm, that's weid that they don't allow using the LTE apn while in GSM if you have LTE subscription. I suggest you contact the operator to confirm this.

However, if the device would support "APN profiles" for different techs and would change the APN accordingly what tech is being used, It would also require that the current session would have to be teared down during the tech change and that would mean broken TCP/IP-sessions.

You were right. It seems that I am able now to browse on 2G using the LTE APN. The issue plaguing me now is https://together.jolla.com/question/45765/permit-simultaneous-lte-and-2g-connection-for-places-where-3g-frequency-is-not-accessible/

Closing issue
