    Question searching for 3G - won't connect

    Our cell service was down for quite a few hours after major storms that passed through our area the other day and now my iPad2 keeps searching for 3G and won't connect to the Internet. I can get online with WiFi (although it still says "searching" beside the little WiFi symbol). I tried a hard restart and left the iPad off for awhile but it's still not working. I'm using version 5.1.1. Does anyone have a suggestion or solution to this problem?

    One possibility is switch device off, use the pin provided and eject your micro sim card and reseat it.
    If this doesn't work drive to a different location and test using a new 3G tower , if it still is not working , check your carrier settings ( APN setting).
