Can't get internet through 3g on iphone

Hi

I have just bought a new Iphone 3gs and although i can access all apps fine when connected to Wifi, if there is no wifi, i don't seem to be able to connect to anything via 3g. The o2 signal is very strong but it isn't showing any letters or anything (eg 3g) yet i know this area is fine. Have i got to switch something on perhaps?

User error - don't really want to sound really thick, but hadn't actually switched it off and on again (thought I had - but was putting it on standby and on again) Robot surprised
