I have an Iphone 4s 5.1.1.

Got the mobile from another country and using it in India via Gevey sim.
Wi-fi is working fine and activated a mobile internet 3g plan with airtel.
I can see the 3G symbol on the device but not able to access internet.
I get the error message "Could not activate data network" .
All the settings are prefect as per airtel.

Already tried,
Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

Settings>General>Network>Cellular Data - On

Airtel (Mobile Service provider) is still working on this..

Can some one help...

    Hi Sushil84,

    I faced the similar issue with 4S and airtel network.
    Apart from all the reset option and all,
    There is an APN charger for Iphone on
    Go to the site " " and get the APN setting and download that.
    I did the same and now my internet is working fine.

    Hope it helps u too..
