I am an xfinity mobile customer on the unlimited plan. I purchased an LG charge X and put the sim in my galaxy s7 that i had from when i was with verizon. i know byod android is still not officially supported but was hoping somebody came across this and knew how to fix it.
so far everything has worked except two things:
1- when i try to turn on mobile hotspot on my phone a popup comes up saying "checking subscription status" which is what would come up when i was on verizon. that popup then disappears and a new popup saying "unable to connect, mobile number not found" shows up. it's almost like it's checking verizon. i'm assuming this works on xfinity mobile android phones?
2- when i'm on a phone call, i can no longer use mobile data (e.g. use browser, send/receive txts...). is this also because i'm using my verizon phone or is this standard for xfniity mobile?
appreciate the help.
