    Are you on AT&T or Tmobile? I dont know what switches the Hero has specifically though, but perhaps you have an "Enable Data Connection" toggled off. I can let you know more on Tuesday when I get my Hero.

    Also, make sure you have that APN you created selected as the APN to use.

    The usual way to get a data connection is to go to:
    Home-Settings - Wireless Controls then tap on Mobile Network to show a green tick.

    Another way is to add the 'Mobile network' widget to your Home screen. It's in HTC Widgets under Settings. Once it's on your Home screen simply tap it to toggle mobile data on and off.
