I have 2 SIMs in my FP2, a Phone Co-op one and a Virgin Mobile one, both use the EE network. Usually I just use data on Phone Co-op (and Virgin is for free calls home) but having run out this month, I have tried to use data on my Virgin SIM, with no luck.
I know the SIM works OK in another phone as I lent it to my partner when she ran out of data on hers.
I have tried each SIM in each slot and that makes no difference.
Having set the settings to use the Virgin SIM for data, and with data ‘on’ for that SIM, I just get a “No data connection” message.
I stumbled across APN settings as a possible reason. So I tried to set up a new APN Name for the Virgin settings mentioned here: https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Virgin-Mobile/New-Purple-Virgin-Mobile-SIM-and-need-the-APN-settings-for-data/m-p/3597569#M96794
I did this twice and each time it did not appear in the list of APNs.
Then, after ignoring my phone for a while, both of them were visible. However, now it is back to the old settings. However data now doesn’t work on either SIM. I’m sitting here in tears.
