    iPad will not connect to the internet

    Hi all,

    I have an iPad 64gb WiFi and 3G but it will not connect to the internet even if its connected to WiFi. I have reset the network settings, I have removed and re inserted the SIM, I have changed locations (due to signal).

    The msg is "Safari connot open page because it is not connected to the internet" and "could not activate Data network".

    I dont want to connect usng WiFi just theh 3G signal (which I have)

    Anyhelp appreciated.

    Thanks

    Tom

    Have you signed up for/activated a 3G account?

    Go into "settings" then "cellular data". Follow the activate tabs etc. You will need your CC handy. It's $25 or $15 a month depending on your planned usage etc.

    Cheers

    I have trouble with my wireles connection. No problem with desktop, laptop, bluray or blackberry. I pad 2 has problems tho even when i'm standing next to the router. Loses signal easy too. Begining to think Ipad is a dud as far as an internet device.

    KJSmitty's advice is good if you are in the US (where we only have two providers with similar setups), but from your profile I suspect that's not true.

    I understand that there are a wider variety of options in the UK (if my pathetic knowledge of geography serves). You may want to call some cell provider do a little comparison shopping first.
