Text the word Active to 2020 save the settings that get sent back and reboot phone.
You can also go into network settings, scroll down and choose reset.
If all this fails you are on the wrong data apn, but let us know about the above first pls.

Check in My O2 to see if you have the idata bolt on. If not call customer service to get it changed over.
