Sending APN setting via text to kids gps tracker

Hi, I recently bought a KidsNav watch for my daughter and they supply an O2 sim out of the box. In my area O2 aren't that great and I've always been an EE customer. So i purchased a pay as you go sim from EE to use instead.

 

For the watch, to function you seed to send the apn setup info from any mobile phone to the watch via text. On their website, they only offer a solution for O2 and the text you've to send to the watch is: pw,123456,apn,payandgo.o2.co.uk,payandgo,password,23410#

 

What I'm trying to find out is what is the EE equivelent of the text above so I can complete the watch setup?

 

Thanks for the help 🙂

Hi there @Davie563

 

Welcome to the community.

 

You can request APN settings for a device from our EE internet set up website.

 

Let me know if this helps 🙂

Hi Leanne,

 

The problem with the watch is it doesn't have a setting interface. I need to send the settings via text in the same way the 02 text was structured.

 

Im guessing the watch reads this and implements the settings. 

 

Do EE not have something similar?

 

Cheers

Hi @Davie563

 

Have you tried selecting an EE device on the link and entering the EE number this should send a text to the device for the APN settings to be installed?
