    Welcome to the forums. Is the device new? You may need to contact your carrier to have the phone enabled to work on their network.

    This too. I forgot.

    I recently encountered this issue even with att after switching from Verizon. I could receive calls and texts but no data until I registered my imei with them

    AT&T made a similar claim that I would benefit from the network more, once I gave them my IMEI as well.

    Well I did. No data vs having data

    Oh, I still did. Just didn't see much of a difference.

    But I do recall seeing other threads quite some time ago, where this step was needed to fully activate the phone. It's less common now as a lot of phones are compatible on most networks out of the box.
