I have just put my new SIM card into my iPad, it asked to update settings which I did. Since then, it has been trying to connect but with no luck. Does anyone have any idea as to why this may be? Any suggestions gratefully received.
VOILÀ - I changed the settings from Local Home Profile to International Roaming and it works. Thank you folks for your time and help.
Thanks for your reply. I omitted to mention that I am currently in France, hence the roaming question. The card was activated recently, in Dublin, and was fine. I use my iPad, while in France, for FaceTiming family and clients.
I will check out your link now and see where that takes me. Cheers.
Thanks again for your reply. I went into settings on the iPad and the sim was showing as a Proximus.be something. I went into APN settings but I couldn't change anything. Once I tried to change the APN, as per the article you posted the link to, my iPad locked up and I had to perform a soft reset. Everything froze/locked up.
I tried the sim in an old Nokia phone but nothing happened. I am not charging another phone, not locked to any network, and I will try the sim in that.
I do not understand why my iPad Air (which has a sim slot) should lock up
Sorry, I meant to say that the signal strength indicator simply flashed from left to right as it tries to find a signal. Nothing is registered apart from that
Sorry I don't know why your iPad locks up.
If you can change the APN settings without this happening then you should try changing proximus.be to 48months.liffeytelecom.com and see if that helps.
Unfortunately Apple devices are a pain on networks such as 48 due to the stupid way that Apple does things.
Hope this helps.
Thanks Conor, I am attaching 3 screen dumps. The first two show what resulted when I tried your suggestion. Basically, the SIM card is shown as Proximus (whatever this is). When I tap on Sim Applications (which isn't always available with whatever is going on) I get to the page where i can select When Abroad. I tried to go to the Network Selection page 12 times. Twice I got the page but it immediately returned to the previous page. The 3rd screen dump is the result of inserting my Old 3 SIM card. With this everything is perfectly normal with the signal bar indicating service level etc.
