APN settings on my G8 are greyed out

Hi,

I am using a sim unlocked Sprint LG G8 ThinQ in Ireland.........I puchased it from an Ebay seller based in Texas, selling them as new handsets.

 

My Irish sim card will only activate on the GSM/UMTS service and the setting to change the APN settings is greyed out without a 3 dot drop down menu.

 

Is it possible to get the APN from my Irish cell provider into this handset, or am I wasting my time ???

 

Please help!!!!!

I have dialled ##3282# ans got into some APN settings but when I try and edit.......it asks me for a "service code"

Any ideas???

Is this a Sprint service code or a LG service code??

Is it possible someone could give me a service code to try and get my phone working.

 

It is outside the US, it will never be in the US or on the Sprint network again. I am in Ireland and if I can't get help it will just be a $400 paperweight!

 

Please help.

LG's are finicky about APN settings.  Usually, they require the device to be active on an account and SIM before it will display APN settings.  Sometimes you can create as new and enter your APN settings.  I can give you your service code, I just need you to PM me the MEID.
