    I have a Samsung Note 4 unlocked but set up for AT&T & T-Mobile. After installing my Mobal sim, I keep going through the Mobal setup for APN. After filling everything in on setup. Clicked “save” on the ” 3 dot menu”. Found the openroamer choice in a menu and checked the circle box. But it keeps unchecking the circle box and I no longer have internet access. What am I missing? Sometimes it does this after turning off and back on, but sometimes even does it while leaving the phone on.
