Hello Exetel,

Just received my sim for z29 plan for my mobile.
I've ported my number from tpg.
before the internet connection was fine on mobile.
but now its not working any more.

changed following
Settings->Connection->Access Point -> created new access point with access point name "internet" and rest is default (connection name "optus" but i guess it doenst mater)

when i try to open webpage it says "packet data not available check network services"

please help

can't recall the exact steps but with a Nokia as well as creating the new APN you also need to make it the default, could still be using the old one by the sounds of it

I haven't used a Nokia for quite a while but it is set out in the user manual about how to setup an APN and how to make it the default, the user manuals are available for download from Nokia's website if you don't have it to hand
