Those settings are for a PAYG phone not a monthly contract. Are you a PAYG customer? Can you make voice phone calls?

Helen,

 

You have posted the same question in two place. Please only post in one place.

 

If you are no longer a PAYG customer you need to change your settings. You can do this by syncing the phone with itunes and this should force the new settings to be dowloaded to the phone.  Or you can text the word web to 40127 and the settings should be sent to you.

Are you able to make voice calls and send texts? Have you got mobile data switched on in settings? There is no mobile data icon as such - it will either say 3G or o (which means GPRS) or E for Edge.

Are you on a contract or PAYG? Did you get the phone new? Have you synced it with iTunes to get the right settings.

 

Text the word web to 40127 and follow the instructions you get back to get the right internet settings on the phone.

If you sync the phone to iTunes in the normal way it should automatically put the right settings on the phone. However, if that doesn't work you should restore the phone as a new phone. That will reload the iOS software and the right settings. Be careful with that as it will erase any data you have on the phone so make sure it is properly backed up. Why didn't the text to 40127 work. What error did you get?

You are giving conflicting information here - you say that voice and texts work but then you also said that texts to all numbers are giving the same error message. Which one is it?

 

Did you get phone new or second hand?

What type of user are you - contract or PAYG

Where did you get the micro sim that goes in the phone?

sorry but you mis understood,,my phone i working properly except to that mobile data network and i think the reason why i cand send a message to the number that yuo give is because it is not an ordinary number..its only a five digit number..
