Can you use the internet at all?
If not then it sounds as though you are connected to the network but don't have a correct APN (access point name, the settings for the phone to use data).
The link below should help:

@Pav check in settings that those apps are allowed to access mobile data. 

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
