I use mine with airtel Hotspot but you're good to go with your phone. Swift uses band 40 for its 4g LTE, and I just checked your device specs via GSM arena, and it has band 40 as well.

My phone (Xiaomi A1) has band 40 but I don't get reception when I insert my swift sim card into it, is there something I need to do for it to work?

If your phone has band 40 (which it does, thanks to cris83 for confirming) all you have to do is create a manual APN using the settings below. choose your swift sim as the prefered internet sim and you're good to go.

Swift Network Nigeria(4G/LTE)

Profile Name: swift internet(this can be anything)
APN: lte.swiftng.com
Access Number: *99#
Username : – (leave blank)

Create a new APN using this and enjoy

Did you try to insert the swift settings manually in the apn? Try that first and see if it will work. Someone posted the settings already and how to do it so read up a bit

Use it on SIM 1 Only. Swift doesn't bring out signal Bar on phone, just the LTE or 4G sign. Force signal to be on 4g only.

I'd like to ask if a Router can improve download speeds better than a WiFi modem? For instance, I get 1 to 2MB/s while downloading files using Swift. So is there a chance a Swift Router will increase the download speeds?

if the RN7 is on havoc or any other custom rom, you might not be able to make calls but only to airtels. This certainly has to be a glitch in the OS as VOLTE should be able to call all lines.. Anyway, most new Nokias of today that have 4G, also have VOLTE..e.g Nokia 2.2

Works on either SIM

If you want to force 4G on Dual SIM. It only works in SIM one or when only one SIM is present.

Stock rom wont give you VOLTE.. or perhaps, if you are using the global version of your device, it would. but if you are looking at getting VOLTE, consider unlocking your bootloader and installing a custom rom. smiley

Not custom roms like HAVOC still have glitches as regards making calls via VOLTE..

try out other custom rom and see which works in calling all lines

Modified..

Imagine the stress involved in getting swift4G to work on a phone. Simply buy a cracked mifi and use it with the swift sim. It's easier that way.

I have a swift4G compatible mifi for sale in case anyone is interested.

...thank you ...I'm using global version and it's showing volte using Ntel sim . So unlocking the bootloader will make it call other network? Plus Ntel network itself
