Tried doing settings manually. go to settings, then connectivity,then settings. THIS IS WERE I STRUGGLE!

OPTIONS ARE- Mobile data on / off

allow mobile data usage - home / country / worldwide

network destinations - access point, internet, wap, uncategorised.

VPN- POLICIES, POLICY SERVER, LOG. SAYS NEED TO INSTALL A VPN POLICY????

APN- WHEN I TRY ANYTHING IT ASKS FOR PIN 2??? DONT KNOW THIS.

getting well hacked off couldve got a contract sim for less hassle. I was on O2 prior to giff gaff thought it would be a simple cross over more fool me. Cheers for everyones help but really dont have the time or patience to keep trying to install a vpn or apn when the instructions dont coincide with the options on my phone.
