    Hi
    first post as best to come to those who know,
    i bought my son the 3gs and i decided to use his 3g,
    i have a contract phone with Carphone warehouse via o2, no internet so i rung them and added the 'net bolt-on,
    i have connected ok with wi-fi on my own router but am getting the no cellular data network, when trying to connect on the 'net,
    do i need to change any settings? or unblock this phone? apology for what may seem silly questions but never used one before and my son has had all 3 iphones but via Apple/o2 so his service is always on,
    just to add my sim works ok and i have checked and am not being charged, to be honest if i had known i could connect via wi-fi i probably wouldnt have added the 'net bolt-on as i don't really want/need to use it on the move but now i have paid for it would like to try
    apology for the waffle and thanks for any help;)
