Under APN put:

Password: password (this is the word "password")
leave visual voicemail empty (gg don't do it)
under MMS put:

You may also need to reboot your phone to implement these settings.

Re: iphone 5 says could not activate cellular data network

Updating to ios 6.1.2 has brought the 'mobile data network' option back to my phone.

Not sure why it disappeared, strange!

Thanks anyways!
