When accessing Settings -> System -> Mobile Network and trying to enable Mobile data (named "Mobilt Bredband" on Telenor Sweden), it tries for a few seconds and then dies with "Problem with connection".

There is an issue that might be close to this issue here but I have no settings for "APN". The only thing close to this setting is "MMS access point", but I do not think that has anything with to do with this issue?

This problem makes it impossible to use the data connection on my Jolla phone, making it impossible to complete the switch from my Android. :/

did you try a long tap on "Mobilt Bredband" and 'edit'?

No, I missed that. Once I tried to tap-and-hold the connection a bit the "edit" appeared and I could access and change the APN. Thank you!

As @rudi pointed out in the comments, tap-and-hold the mobile network connection revealed the "Edit" option and there the settings for APN is.

For the ones using the Swedish Telenor, there is a guide here for manually set the APN. In short, the URL should be:

Now it works for me! \o/

Good that you got it to work, IMO the finding the APN setting is not intuitive at all. However, this question is a duplicate of

Maybe this question have some value of its own, since it contains specific issues with Telenor in Sweden?

@lilleman, IMO the problem in your original question related to problems that occur when APN is not properly set. And from your own answer, it all started to work when you managed so set the APN (belonging to Telenor SE). And that is why I answered that the question is a duplicate of the How-to-set-APN.

True that. :)
