When you are out and about, can you see at the top of your phone screen g, Edge, h or h+

Hi

 

Are you on pay as you go?

 

Is mobile data definitely switched on on your phone?

 

Also, have you recently updated your software?

If you are only seeing g then that is a 2g signal and it is unlikely you will get much Internet access from it. I normally get the page cannot be displayed.

If you are getting edge then to be honest that isn't much better.

If you are seeing h or h+ then you should be able to access Internet and email etc. How are you turning your mobile data on? I have an s4 and the process is similar.

Alternatively if that doesn't work then here are your APN settings to add manually
