    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.

    Are both of you running the most current iOS? 4.3.3?

    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.
