    Default Moved to Australia - do I need to root?

    I just completed my relocation to Australia and have two Rezounds that I'd like to use here. I have had them disconnected by Verizon and have put Optus (local carrier) SIM cards in. I can make calls, send and receive texts, but I'm getting no data connection.

    I've read through the guide from Mr Smith, but am still unsure how much of it I need to do to get the data working. The phone is unlocked already, so that shouldn't be required and I'd like to avoid wiping the phone if possible. Any advice would be appreciated, and yes this would be the first time I've done rooting, hacking, etc.

    Cheers,
    Grug

    Did you setup the APN information? A quick internet search shows you need to setup 2 APNs (one for MMS and one for Internet)

    Technical Settings, SMSC & APNs: Mobile Phone

    If the APNs are not setup correctly, you will not get data.

    Rooting, or other "hacking", should not be required.
    Current Personal Phone: Google Nexus 4 on Cricket/Aio (Stock Lollipop with hells-Core Kernel)
    Current Work Phone: LG G2 VS980 on VZW (Snuzzo's Plain-Andy ROM)
    Current Tablet: iPad 4/Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
    Other phones "in the family": HTC One (M7), Moto G GPE, LG G2
    Previous/Retired Android Devices: HTC Aria/Incredible 2/Rezound/DNA, Samsung Stratosphere, SGS2 Skyrocket, Nextbook 8P
