Zenfone 8 Flip with AT&T
Just got my Zenfone 8 Flip in the mail today, It definitely seems like a great phone so far.
However, I'm having some big issues with my carrier, AT&T. I went to my local retail AT&T location for them to get me a new sim and set up my phone number with the new IMEI and new sim.
On their end, everything is good. Everywhere I look, the Flip version is supposed to support AT&T's network bands.
I can make calls, send texts, all that. But I cannot access mobile data at all. Even tried a second brand new sim. For fun, I even swapped the sim into my Asus Zenfone 6 (my old phone), and it no longer has mobile data either....
At this point I've called tech support and I've got a ticket in. I'll give them the 24-48 hour window before I make the decision to return the Flip.
I see no reason the Flip shouldn't work. My plan doesn't have 5G, so that's not a huge deal. But I would need it to continue to work after AT&T's 3G sundown in Feb 2022. But if I must, I still have until the 14th of Sept to return the Flip and I'll have to consider other options. The lack of an sd slot in the non-flip 8 is not idea at all.
Edit: According to T-Mobile my Flip's IMEI is 5G and VOLTE compatible, so if AT&T doesn't work I may switch carriers.
