I'm using an orange PAYG sim in my iPad thats registered to an iPhone tarrif giving me - supposedly - 250mb data and 12 months free wifi access

I have spoken to orange who have confirmed this and had a text confirming, but when i turn on the cellular data on my iPad im told that im not registered on a data plan

I only registered the sim on Wednesday night - does it take a bit longer or do i need another painful call to orange?

Or is something else up?!

Probably need to change you connection / APN settings to match that of your sim card.

What settings do you have in there at the moment?

or

Some of these work but intermittently. Im sure it's a 3G sim i have but can't get a 3G signal

Are you rebooting after changing the settings, as this will make a difference
banned#8
Yeah rebooting every time.

I think it may be the sim. Will phone orange and request a new one.
