    Heya guys
    Just a quick question, is anyone else not getting a mobile internet connection right now? This has happened before on Orange but it's different this time because my phone doesn't seem to be searching for a network to join (before in the settings it would say "searching" or something and be greyed out but not this time)

    Hopefully it's just a network problem, rather than my phone


    EDIT: I've managed to fix it i think. It would seem something I installed (im thinking SwitchPro Widget) changed the APN name in the settings to orangeinternet_off

    Annoying

    Some switches turn mobile internet off, while some rename the APN to achieve the same result. The lesson here is to make sure mobile internet is turned ON before installing switch widgets that can turn the network off.
