    Default 2G to 3GS - Problem - Help Needed

    Hi,

    Now on my 3rd iPhone, having used the great minds of this forum to help with the 1st two.

    I've been using a 2G, jailbroken and unlocked for a year or so with no problems using my business sim from Orange. Recently bought a 3GS PAYG Orange - thinking that I'd be able to simply pop the business sim in and get the same access to data that I currently have on the 2G...but without now having to jailbreak as I simply bought one from Orange.

    I can phone and send MMS, but when I try getting data I get the "Could not activate cellular data network" message.

    Sticking the sim back in the 2G works fine, so the sim is defeinately enabled for this......any thoughts?

    I noticed very early after buying the phone and while it was receiving system texts relating to the PAYG that the Cellular Data Network tab was visible, however after a few hours and the system reboot it advised it's gone.

    Any help in allowing me use of the data services on the 3GS would be appreciated. If jailbreaking is my only route now then I'll go ahead - would appreciate if someone could point me to a user friendly thread if that's the case....I'm a bit rusty.

    Have you tried a reset network settings?
    Is it possible you accepted a carrier update from iTunes?

    Did you restore your 3GS with an iTunes backup from the 2G iPhone?

    What OS are you running on the 3GS? 3.1.2?

    Yes - it's had no difference

    Yes - I think when I originally sync'd the new 3GS one I allowed a carrier update - thinking that as I was using orange legitemately this time I should go ahead.

    No - I set it up as a new phone. Since realising that i couldnt get data I thought I'd restore and see if I could go back to factory settings. This I've done, being careful not to backup to an earlier version. The original factory settings it would seem still do not allow access to the Cellular Data Network tab, even though it was there when the unit came out the box.
