    I'm on 3 using froyoand cannot turn on 3g has anyone any ideas or fixes.

    I'm using switch pro widget which maybe causing the issue.

    Try rebooting the phone as this clears 75% of problems

    Try doing a factory reset this should clear the problem for you

    Rebooting made no difference for me.

    Wonder if its an apn problem with switchpro widget.

    Try uninstalling the switchpro widget, if that doesn't clear it try a factory reset.

    I'm having the same issue and on 3 too. Going to try a factory rest.

    Had the same issue right after the update and noticed my APNs were reset to default. I had to re-enter the proper settings to get 3g to work again.
    Markg, deek0 and pauliep like this.

    Wish I looked at the APNs before resetting save me re-downloading all my apps. Although saying that its forced me to have a wash up of all the apps I actually don't use.

    I have the same problem too!!
    I switched it off and on a few time and did reset the APN...still no luck...
    really not wanting to do a factory reset since it means i have to download and re-set up the phone again...

    First post on the forum, hopefully a useful one. I had the same problem on 3 but figured it out....

    Go to Settings, then Wireless & Networks, then Mobile Networks (set options), then Access Point Names.

    There should be a 3 (three.co.uk) with a white circle. Click on that and it should work.

    Correct! I had to do exactly the same on mine earlier after updating.

    Hello following the thread does anyone find out a real solution after Froyo update on the loss of Data connection .

    On my side i updated it yesterday , WIFI & call no issue but i lost my data connection and even after different attempt to create a new Data connection, it still not working do i need to reset to factory setting ?
    some additional question :
    - Will my phone reboot in Froyo or 2.1
    - How can i keep my paid apps ?

    Many thanks for your update if any .

    I've a few friends who managed this without a factory reset. I didn't bother and did a factory reset and it worked fine.
    - after factory reset it will be to 2.2
    - paid apps should be remembered by your google account (assumption)

    What apps are you paying for? I've still to figure out why I'd pay for any app. You can always find a free on that does it just as good?

    I updated and had not mobile connection. Went to Settings, wireless and networks, Mobile networks, access point names.

    3 is in the list and click the button, data connection immediately started to work. Hope this helps.
