I have no idea why my iphone continuely states it cannot recieve reception.
I have rung telecom and they have confirmed that my sim card is activated and working correctly.
I have typed in the APN address and still nothing.

Does anyone know how to fix this issue?
Much appreciated!

Maybe the phone has a fault and the issue can not be fixed with a call to Telecom or a post on a public forum.

Does that same SIM work in another handset? If Yes then not a Telecom issue. Telecom can't tell if the SIM has died over the phone.

Have you confirmed the iPhone is not Blacklisted?

The APN is only for mobile data access it's not going to give your iPhone mobile coverage

Call Telecom and ask them to check they will require the IMEI of your iPhone

Where was the iPhone purchased? Not the pub I hope.

Your iPhone may have been working previously this does not stop a handset been blacklisted by the carriers to stop it from working.

We would have blacklisted the device only if it was reported stolen.

Have your tried another person's SIM card?

I assume you have "Enable 3G" ON. General, Network.
