    Hi,

    I have a 3G enabled IPAD2; have taken a connection from Reliance Communication (Delhi).

    For the past 4-5 days, I have been unable to connect to the Internet using 3G (am able to connect via Wi-Fi). Getting messages :Could not activate data network" and "Safari could not open the page because it is not connected to the Internet".

    The signal is coming in full strength and 5 bars are showing along with the "Reliance" logo on top-left corner.

    Have been trying through Reliance comm's helpdesk, but they are clueless.

    Has anyone faced a similar problem and can suggest a solution?

    Thanks

    Are you actually seeing 3G next to Reliance?

    Only when you see either 3G, EDGE or o (GPRS) next to your carrier name will you be connected to the network.

    I am sure someone else with more knowledge will come along and help you :)

    In fact, no. It wasn't showing 3G, EDGE or o.

    But this triggered my mind; I switched the IPAD2 off (using the sleep/wake switch) and on again. Sure enough, 3G was showing in front of Reliance and it stared working.

    Thanks a lot Harters, for triggering my brain.

    For all IPAD2 users - the golden rule is "If everything fails, turn it off and on again. There's a good chance it will start working again".
