iPad and Orange PAYG sim

Banned 10
Found 18th Mar 2011
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?

APN: orangewap
Username Multimedia
Password: Orange

Such as

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.
