How are you activating the net? 3rd party widget?
Look at your apn names, see if anything changed them.
APNs are unchanged and were working before.
No widget used.
Complete loss of all signal (2G as well), although the phone does pick up four networks (but wont connect).
How did you unlock it?
Does it work OK back on the Orange sim (or someone else's if you no longer have one)
If the APNs are unchanged are they not Orange APNs ? Don't you need to swap over to 3 APNs so you're accessing via 3's servers not Orange's ? I imagine the SIM has probably been blocked by Orange (as is their right, it's not their SIM).
Separate names with a comma.
