Installed 3.0? Lost 3G? Here's how to restore iPhone settings
Like the day baby Jesus was bestowed upon the Earth by the Lord Almighty, or the day our reptilian overlords first visited our planet and infiltrated government, yesterday was a day of reckoning for humanity. Well, there was a firmware update for the iPhone, and given the metric fuckton of people who went batshit crazy last night trying to download it, you'd think the Second Coming had occurred. Or the lizard people.
3.0 for the iPhone is here, but after downloading the 230MB update you might have found you've lost 3G connectivity. If that's the case, here's how you get it back:
From the main screen of your iPhone tap Settings > General > Network
Under Cellular Data Network:
- For Pay & Go customers, tap APN and change idata.o2.co.uk to payandgo.o2.co.uk
- For Pay Monthly customers, tap APN and change idata.o2.co.uk and enter mobile.o2.co.uk
No need to change your username and password, so leave them alone. Because the 3.0 firmware also supports MMS, you need to scroll down to MMS and change the settings to those above. One final thing - to activate the MMS service, text MMS to 1010 and O2 will get on the case. If you need taking by the hand and walking through all that, O2 have an interactive guide to show you the changes. Boom!
