Hi and thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to help answer your questions.


Ok, sop basically you are saying that the Data network isn't working yes? It DID work when you were on WiFi but wont when you're not?


If thats the case, lets try this first.

  1. Open the Settings app
  2. Choose Wireless & Networks
  3. IF for some reason Flight/Airplane mode is enabled, disable it.
  4. IF it was disabled, then enable it for 2 minutes, then disable it again and pull the battery out to reboot it.
  5. Go back into the Wireless settings and go to Mobile Networks and make sure that DATA is enabled.


Let me know, as one of those should do it, but of course if not we will continue to work with it!
