    Go to settings-wireless and networks-movile networks and tick the packet data option. Tell me if it does not work and I will tell you another method.

    Hi, it's quicker just to long press the power on/off button on the side - & press "data network mode". Use this method to turn data on/off quickly. Hope this helps. :) Graham

    Thanks, it still didn't work!
    But then I realised that I didn't have the right APN set up.
    Got it all fixed now though, and at least I know the right way to turn it on and off!!

    Try to turn off wifi ... If WiFi is turned on, does not use packet data
