    I'm wondering if anyone has had the same issue and been able to fix it.

    The issue is that the mobile data switch is greyed over so unable to switch it on and off meaning data is not currently working.

    I've tried these already
    Switching to aeroplane mode
    Resetting to factory
    Taking sim in and out
    Resetting the APN
    Changing network provider

    Nothing is working so far

    This happened a week after getting WiFi so I think it's probably linked.

    LG, O2 (have tried others since as first thought that may be the issue) how do I find out which android version?

    I have no idea about the other things either, I am using WiFi in a house share.

    Are we talking WiFi or mobile data here? The sim and apn will only affect the mobile data, WiFi is a different radio. Do you have unlimited data? It might be you've reached an allotment with your carrier. Or, the fact that the option is grayed out could indicate a driver or a hardware failure. A device model and Android version might be helpful.

    When settings in Android are greyed out like that, it usually indicates that the hardware or driver associated is either not recognized or malfunctioning. You could try reflashing firmware, but it's more likely to be a hardware failure. That requires the defective component to be replaced.
