So under settings -> cellular -> cellular data is checked on?
yes, I even had the phone store guy check it and everything is set right, but I can't get data unless I have the wifi on

Also, log into self serve and check if the "Data block" is on your account.

Hi Darlene,

Have you tried checking your self-serve account to see if Data Block is enabled? If you need help with this, feel free to contact customer service by dialling 1-866-995-6636 and ask to see if Data Block is enabled.

Hello Darlene! Is your iPhone a Koodo phone, or did you have it unlocked form another provider to use on our network? If you had it unlocked, please make sure that your APN are set as following: http://koo.do/1fhcMX9.
it was a telus phone but I got it switched to koodo.  I have an iphone 4 so i can't access the APN that way.  I don't know any other way to do it.

If you are still having data issues, I would suggest calling in our technical support department. You can reach them by dialing *611 from your Koodo phone, option 6.
