    Sorry if this has been asked before.

    New o2 sim in new Ipad 3g. Set up PAYG account with o2 but still cannot access 3G. If I turn wifi off and try to use Safari I'm told I am not subscribed to a mobile data service, though a 5 bar signal from O2-UK 3G is displayed top left. If I go to settings and, having put in my email and password, view my account I can see the account and cellular data number (it's even used 3MB so far!) but that's all.

    Am going round in circles - any help much appreciated.

    Couple of possibilities...the first I'm sure you've tried, so please don't be annoyed - but have you enabled 'cellular data' in the 'Settings' menu?

    The second is that the account may just possibly not yet have been authorised. Several Members have had a very similar issue and have found that it takes a while - sometimes a day or two - for the account to be activated by the cellular service provider.

    Sorted - no thanks to O2!

    APN Settings for O2's PAYG on an IPAD are:

    APN ibrowse.o2.co.uk
    Username browse
    Password password (yes - literally 'password'!)

    Hope this helps others.
