Configuring a tiny Nokia

I intend switching my father to 48 but he has a tiny Nokia 2720 phone which I think will be impossible to use while configuring etc. Would it be possible to use a different smartphone to switch & then transfer the configured SIM into his phone?

Are you sure that you configured things correctly?

I'm not sure why you are configuring message settings and tethering settings but I'm not familiar with that model of phone.

 

Hope this helps.

To configure what exactly?

If you mean APN settings then no these are not stored in the SIM but in the phone so have to be configured there.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi yes I meant to configure the phone. Apparently the APN needs to be changed when switching to 48. I am hoping not to have to do it manually as it is a tiny screen. So I guess I have to configure the phone that will be using the 48 sim.card?

Yes you have to configure the internet/APN settings on the Nokia with the SIM installed.
As I said those settings are stored on the phone itself and not the SIM so you can't do it elsewhere and then just move the SIM and expect the internet/APN settings to move too.

Hope this helps.

Have done the APN- 3 times under Data Settings, Message Settings and Tethering settings. However when I go to Google to log into 48 I am getting an Untrusted Connection message & it will not allow me connect with any site.
