    Just got one but not near iTunes so had to enter the APN settings manually to get connected. However, connection speeds are appalling (<1Mb/s) whereas with my Vodafone chopped down dongle SIM I was consistently getting > 2Mb/s and sometimes > 3Mb/s so I'm wondering if:-

    a) The ipcc file via iTunes from Orange is necessary OR
    b) The APN I've input is incorrect

    I've used
    APN: orangeinternet
    Username: Orange
    Password: multimedia


    Any ideas?

    OK, but are the data settings they advised the same as those I posted above?

    Don't use a username or password. That's what worked for me

    Switched back to my chopped Vodafone MicroSim in the meantime. More than three times faster than the Orange.

    Speed test results - the current is Vodafone, the prior tests were Orange
