Unhappy packet data connection not working..

Hey, i have a problem with packet data. it's not working
it's been off for a while and when i wanted to activate it, it didn't work. i tried rebooting, restoring factory defaults and the problem is not with the APN.
i need help please. thanks

Ask it to find available networks in the same settings as packet data when found pick the one you are on I had the same problem but cured it it seems as it does not know your 3G network

Do you get/added GPRS settings? If not call your carrier customer care and request or some Carrier allow user to get settings via web.

Did you use mobile internet / packet data before, and did it work properly before? If not, although you did get the settings, there still might be something wrong. Reason why I'm saying this is that my own provider gave me the wrong settings several times. Only after checking all over on the internet I managed to find the right ones.

yes, it was active before and it worked fine. i was depending on Wi-Fi for a while and stopped using the packet data, then suddenly it stopped activating.

I don't know this is the correct answer, sometimes my phone those settings automatically changed, (few restarts or ...) at that time i can't connect to the internet. So better thing is delete all the "GPRS settings" and again request them.
