    UMTS is a fancy way of saying 3G

    Sounds like you have everything set up correctly, so now go into Settings > About Phone > Status and look for your signal strength. If you have -100 to - 115 dbm you are not in range of a tower. You should be able to do some things with -100 dbm but the higher the negative number goes, the worse the signal strength.

    If you have -99 or lower, I would suspect that you have your wifi turned on, turn it off. If that is not the cause, see if you have Airplane Mode turned on.

    That is all I can think of.
