I am using LycaMobile US , it doesnot work 4G LTE. It only works 2G Edge. The screen size is also small
The mobile is a really nice one, but they sent me the wrong color and I cannot go out to return it now with the pandemic.
Very good cellphone. Would buy again. Most feature of a Galaxy S-series for 1/3 of the price.
First off, I have been using Amazon since 2014, last 3 years placed at least 100 orders a year (161 orders in 2019). But I must admit this may by my first scam. After shopping around, I noticed this phone was in my price range at $270 and reviews were great (~600 reviews with 4.6/5 rating). I skimmed through reviews and saw some people having issues connect to T-Mobile but I assumed "they must have defect, this phone has 4.6 star rating" My first mistake........So I bought the phone anywayWe received the phone and my wife moved everything from her J7 to this A40. She initially complained that the internet wasn't great but at least GPS was working (since that's what went bad on her last phone) We then noticed that it wasn't connecting to 4G at all so I assumed her settings weren't right. After waiting on me for a couple days to look at it she gave up and called T-Mobile. The customer service rep went through all settings (including APN setup) and did a network reset. The tech said settings could "take up to 24 hours" since we don't have phone from T-Mobile. After a day nothing changed but my POS huawei honor phone (also on T Mobile) continued to work fine and connect to 4G with no issues. Just for fun I swapped SIM cards between the A40 and my phone and still no 4G (but my wife's SIM got 4G on my Huawei)We finally gave up and requested refund. It was then I started digging around in the reviews more to try and figure out if I missed some special setup thing for phone to work. To my dismay I noticed that even though the number of ratings was ~600 (as of 22Feb2020), the number of total US reviews were 8 and International were 5. VERY suspicious, especially since most products have at least 50% reviews per the number of ratings. (so 600 ratings would yield around 300 reviews)The seller contacted me after I initiated refund and simply stated "The most commons networks issues is fixed configuring the mobile carrier APN into the phone configuration." and then gave instructions on how to setup APN which I had already done a couple times.This phone should not be sold as being able to work on T-Mobile. Also, someone please figure out how the review and ratings don't line up. I would like to know so I can sell lots of hunk-o-junk but with 5 star ratings so I can make lots of $$$. Then I can buy name brand top-of-the-line phone.
Great phone, awesome screen, perfect size for me, and very snappy performance. However, its does not support the required LTE bands for AT&T in the US, so my speeds could never exceed 20 mbps on cellular networks.Had to return the phone, and ended up with a new Samsung S10e from Sam's Club with $750 in gift cards during the last sale event. The S10e is a little wider and the A40 is taller, but overall they are very similar phones. Can't go wrong with the A-series in general.
