Ouch man wish you replied earlier, I'm going though a phone reset now :( 

So its not my phone's problem, i've got a galaxy s3, and also an S2, I tried the sim in both(with micro sim to normal adapter, usually works) but doesn't work in both phones. Can text/call but no internet. 

Tried entering the APN details over and over, deleted, added new apn etc but no success.

Right now resetting phone and will see how it goes, it was such a pain to get my new s3 the way I like it on s2, took ages to restore apps, since s3 is not rooted ( do not see the point of rooting an s3 as it is awesome straight out of box)

And I did a reset for nothing. Internet still not working, able to connect to wifi but  no mobile data. This never happened while I was with Vodafone and 2deg. Hmm.

I'm hoping someone has a fix for this tomorrow which do not require another reset! Right now going through restoring 10,000 + sms taking yonks and not fun configuring everything to way it was since phone is not yet rooted. Thanks in advance for any help.

Honestly speaking while using internet i felt skinny loads pages faster than two degrees, but in multiple speed tests performed, skinny is averaging at 3000kbps where two degrees averaging 4.5 /5000kbps. Any idea why?
