Iphone 5 shows 3G but no data working on phone

For the last 2 days my Iphone 5 has been showing the 3G symbol but whenever I try to use data the wheel spins round and round with nothing happening.

 

I have already:

  • Checked I have credit - I have a goodybag running
  • Checked the data settings - I have deleted these and re-entered them a couple of times
  • Removed and re-inserted the SIM
  • Updated the Iphone software to 6.0.1
  • Rebooted the phone 
  • Tried to switch 3G off and use just 2G, there is no data in 2G either

HELP!

If your data settings are correct and you have a current goodybag then it should work. Fault with the phone?

I have full service and can make calls etc.  The phone shows 3G in the top left but there is still no internet.
