Are you using Telecom, Vodafone or 2degrees as your 3G connection?

Or WiFi?

If you're using Telecom 3G - change your APN to internet.telecom.co.nz. Something about the last iOS update changed this, or maybe it was their carrier pack, I don't recall, but changing the APN resolved it for me on iPhone and iPad when trying to use Cisco VPN.

Yeah I reckon it'll be your APN setting. Unless it also doesn't work on WiFi....?
