My son’s been moaning something about no 3G access on his Telstra iPhone for the last week or so, finally sat down to look today. He was right – the signal strength is fine, but no ‘3G’ symbol. And if you try to open a web site in the browser you see a ‘no internet access’ message.
I hunted around online and finally found this forum post. One of the remedies suggested is:
“go to settings – general – cellular – Cellular data network -and change APN from telstra.wap to telstra.iph”
I checked the settings and lo and behold:
I changed the setting to telstra.iph:
…then rebooted the phone. Now have the 3G symbol displayed, and data access when not connected to our wifi.
Son now much less grumpy with me.
