    Have you tried to enable it via the setting rather than the widget?

    Menu -> Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> Mobile Networks -> Tick "Data Enabled"

    Faster way to do this, you can hold the power button till the menu pops up, then tap Mobile Network and make sure it says "Connect To Mobile Network Is On" or something along those lines.
    (Don't have this on the ROM I use, but I remember it from Sense 1.5 and 2.1)


    If the above options don't work, you should check your APN settings, these can be found in the same menu:

    Menu -> Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> Mobile Networks -> Access Point Names

    Depends on what network you're on you'll have a couple of APNs, for me I have "Orange UK" and "Orange UK MMS".

    You need to look in the "Orange UK" (Or your network equivalent) and make sure that the settings in there, match those advised by your network.


    Hope this has helped.

    That's a relief, I thought this issue was linked to my 2.1 update I did last night.

    Hopefully just coincidental.
  7. Yeah, Orange is down and when I tried turning my mobile internet on it looks "stuck". Same for everyone apparently.

    I'm relieved it's a national issue, and not just with my phone. Been trying to get it to work all day!!

    Hi, I updated to 2.1 yesterday evening and my 3g has not been working since. I'm on orange but the phone was originally 3uk. Did your 3g's come back on? Any help would be much appreciated.
