    iPad and Orange PAYG sim

    Banned
    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?

    AFAIK these are correct unless you can tell me otherwise!

    Depending on sim you may the following as they work when using a PAYG sim in a broadband dongle.

    APN: orangewap
    Username Multimedia
    Password: Orange


    There are a couple others available

    Such as

    APN: consumerbroadband
    UN: Multimedia
    PW: Orange

    or

    APN: orangeinternet
    UN: orange
    PW: orange

    Just crossed my mind that i may need the iPhone settings not the iPad settings seeing as they think its in an iPhone

    Sounds about right, I think these are the ones you need for PAYG iphone

    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

    Yeah rebooting every time.

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

    Hi Chaps

    i"m having the exact same problem as above. Iv'e had my Orange 3G card since last monday 18-07-11 and when inserted it does register in the top corner of the iPad showing the 3G symbol, but will not work, once I suss it out I will post what I did, if anyone else susses it please post so I can try it.
