After a lot of fiddling and a couple of phonecalls to both O2 and HTC, I've FINALLY managed to get mobile data working on my HTC One X.
I recently bought a white One X, which was given to a friend of mine as an upgrade (he's on Vodafone). The handset came unlocked, but had the Vodafone splash screens and a few bits of Vodafone bloatware on it (and also the Vodafone APN settings by default).
In order to be able to mobile data with my O2 sim in the handset, I had to manually enter the APN settings. This was all well and good until I came to select the profile I had created, when I noticed that it wouldn't let me!
I've since found out that the final step in the instructions which I was sent by O2 was actually incorrect.
O2 instruct you to type "Internet + MMS" into the "APN Type" box. This is not recognised, and is the reason why the profile cannot be selected once it has been created and saved.
Here's what I entered. I have been able to select the APN profile which I created, and my mobile data works just fine now. Follow these instructions step-by-step and you should be good to go. I hope it helps.
The instructions are the ones which O2 emailed through to me. I have simply changed the text in step 20.
Here you go:
Method 2: Entering an APN Manually
Please ensure that when entering O2 into the settings that the letter O is selected and not a zero.
When entering the following information do not press Save until told to in the instructions.
1. Tap the Applications key

3. Tap Mobile network
4. Tap Access Point Names

I don't know why o2 won't just push the settings directly to some handsets. I could get the settings pushed to my Xperia Play, but my Sensation is a no go. I guarantee if they used the same method on the Sensation as they did on the Play it would work, likewise for the HOX. O2 seem intent on annoying customers, I can't wait til my contract is up.

Hi I was wondering if you could help me, I have had a similar problem but with the HTC one s, I tried what you suggested but I still cant seem to select the new setting so a green dot appears. I followed everything exactly and I just cant seem to figure out what is going on!
Here is a screenshot, of the new - unselectable setting.
Any help is greatly appreciated
