I had used a secondary sim in my phone. It was Freedompop. Somehow that profile was blocking my phone from connecting to LTE and data. I deleted that profile and after a couple of minutes LTE showed up and data is working. So if you've used your phone on a secondary provider (ie Knowroaming, Roam Mobility, Freedompop, etc.) try and delete that profile and see if that helps.
So far I've tried:
- toggling airplane mode
- restarting phone
- toggling cellular data
- checking for any stray VPN profiles (there are none)
- resetting network settings
I see 3G as well, even though "enable LTE" is selected.
Here it is again. Whenever IOS is updated on Apple Devices so many issues (real or imagined) happen. Battery drains faster, iPhones start to slow down (especially older models) issues with lagging, data and network connection problems and so on and on.
There are a lot of good advices on this forum but honestly Anyone has even slightest hope that this particular transition is going to be any different than previous. Although it is one of the major updates in years.
I mean, without any glitches.
I didn't find a way to edit it, but I did find a site called http://m.apnchanger.org - loaded it on my phone (using Wifi). I choose Koodo from the list of APN profiles and tried to install it.
Got an error that I needed to remove an old profile instead. I really wish I'd taken a screenshot of it, but it was something like "nprnetgear.com" - something I didn't recognize and that wasn't visible in my APN settings screen. I clicked the "Remove" link it led me to in Settings, and deleted it.
Boom - data now works, I didn't even have to install the Koodo profile again. End of saga.
Thanks to everyone who chimed in here - hopefully this helps someone else.
