    Hey guys,


    I recently imported an AT&T HTC ONE X+ from the US(I live in Australia) and when I put my Australian SIM card in there the reception bar shows up and I can make calls and texts. I can access Wi-Fi also. However my mobile data does not seem to work. When i go to settings and turn it on it just says "Disconnected". Should I just turn on Data Roaming(I don't think I will be charged for it considering I'm using an Australian SIM card in Australia?)? Is it a conflict between the AT&T software and my SIM card? Need some advice. Thanks in advance!

    Hey there, thanks for the very fast reply. I did reset the APN settings to default at the start hoping it would fix the problem but it did not work. I can manually input them but not sure what to type in..

    Interestingly, I went on the Optus website for their APN settings and found this:

    Technical Settings & APNs: Mobile Broadband

    So I simply changed the "Name" and "APN" both to "Connect" and all of a sudden I have internet access. I did not change anything else. This won't wrongly charge me will it?

    It shouldn't. APN settings sometimes have funny names which can add to the confusion. But generally if you can make calls and text, but can't do data or get mms, it's 99.9% of the time related to apn settings.
