APN settings

Phone- LG K8
Android 6.0

After setting up apn it's asking for 3 digit MCC and 2-3 digit MCN? Please help.

Also, how can I tell which sim is which associated to which number? Do I have to monitor usage to determine or is there an easier way to find out? Thanks!

    I have received the same message and am not sure which APN settings to use for a LG K8 4G US375 Telephone... I am looking into this further and have discovered so far, if I am not mistaken, that US Cellular uses models that are LTE/CDMA and the Global sim that is sent out to us by default may not work in this type of phone. We may have to order the LTE sim...

    Although a CDMA phone may contain an exposed SIM slot, it doesn't automatically follow that you can swap the LTE SIM inside for another operator's SIM and access that operator's network.

    That SIM slot is typically locked to the origin network provider & would need to be unlocked before another operator's SIM card can be used. Usually, this means an international unlock, allowing use of the phone on overseas GSM networks - which is where the Global SIM comes in, as it's seen as a foreign SIM, due to it having a UK operator code. The 4G LTE SIM is a domestic SIM & won't work unless the SIM slot has been given a domestic unlock, which I believe most operators won't provide.

    There's one additional wrinkle - even if you get the SIM slot unlocked, the phone hardware needs to support the bands used by the network operator of the new SIM - in the case of this USC model, it only supports CDMA & the LTE bands, but the Global SIM does not support LTE.

    Hello Dragyn,

    I can gladly help you set your device. Our records indicate that you have one LTE SIM card associated with your account, this SIM card is for unlocked GSM devices. Can you please confirm if your Alcatel phone it's an unlocked GSM device?
