    I'm on the simplicity contract and my settings under "Settings - General - Network - Cellular Data Network" are as follows:

    APN: mobile.o2.co.uk
    Username: vertigo
    Password: password

    Hope that helps

    Yeah I have used that one as well. However when I setup my iPhone on 2.0.0 for the first time those settings were their for me so I just stuck with them.

    In fact thinking back there is also

    mobile.o2.co.uk
    faster
    web

    Hopefully one of these sets of settings will work.

    I bought a 3g iPhone on PAYG with o2 and the settings need to be:


    APN: payandgo.o2.co.uk
    Username: vertigo
    Password: password

    When you get your iPhone PAYG simcard it has a sticker on the front that tells you that you need to change the APN from:

    mobile.o2.co.uk to payandgo.o2.co.uk

    the mobile.o2.co.uk are the settings for the people on contract with the iphone

    I actually got the iPhone 3G (PAYG), but only yesterday did i actually activate it, and then i went into town to an o2 shop to see what the cellular data settings things needed to be, he did payandgo.co.uk (didn't know o2 owned that :p) and it wouldn't work, so he said i have to wait 24 hours for it, but only now have i also realised that they were the rong settings :L

    If i change the setting to the fast:web one, will i get good FREE internet? that the contract people get? :apple:

    iphone top-up credit problem

    hey,

    Just wondering if someone can help me out on this one.

    bought an iphone 2G recently, second hand. Have jailbroken and updated firmware to 3.0 and of course its also unlocked.

    I use a Pay-as-you-go sim, in germany with 02. Last night i bought €30 credit, managed to send a couple of SMS (literally 2) and now this morning the credit is gone! I didnt even use the top-up card to call!

    The previous owner of the phone, i believe, also used a Pay-as-you-go sim but they never mentioned this credit draining problem. Mind you, they only had firmware 1.1.4 installed so im wondering if the 3.0 firmware has new settings which I need to change in order to save my credit vanishing!?

    Is there something i'm doing wrong, does 3.0 automatically try to connect to the internet all the time, im quite lost! how can i preserve the money i put on my phone?

    I'm quite new to the whole iphone game,

    if someone could help :)
