Ipad 2 the 3G not working

kelf1, Mar 17, 11:19pm
Updated the Ipad 2 to the new ios 5.1 and since then the vodafone 3G not working.
Tried lots of different things recommended by google search but still can't get it to work.
Anyone have any ideas!

Did you try here!http://www.vodafone.co.nz/help/device-support/user-guide/You might just have to review your settings as they may have just been erased by the update.

My one did the same thing - had to set the APN in the settings again. you could also try going into settings, general, network, cellular data networkand resetting settings (down the bottom) or ejecting and reinstalling the sim.

+1 for apn settings

iOS 5 seems to keep droping these. I have no idea why this happens, but we have to re-enter the settings about once every 2 months at work

thanks everyone
my ipad had replaced thetestraclear apn settings with vodafone settings (!) and thats why it wasnt working.
It's working fine now.

On phones or ipads! Phones should be getting a config profile from VF or TC. Anyways, a quick fix for that is to make a configuration profile with the iPhone configuration utility with just the APN in it.

It happens in iPads running iOS 5 here at work. Drives me up the wall.

The APN settings just seem to vanish

Yeah apply a policy, should fix it. I can make one for you to try if you supply email address and the apn settings.

We've got policies here for the VPN and mail etc. No fix. It doesn't happen as often now though.

I believe it is a wide spread problem with iOS, after a bit of googling it seems a lot of other people are having the same problem.

Yes, I had this problem too. Very common with ipads.
