    you probably need to re-install the IOS for the network you are using.
    I had a problem with no cellular data available if I wasn't on WiFi.
    I took it to the Apple store and they reinstalled IOS 6 and everything worked.
    They told me something got clobbered in my APN


    FYI
    Definition: APN stands for Access Point Name, a setting on your mobile phone that identifies an external network your phone can access for data (e.g., 3G or 4G Internet service on your phone). For example, wap.voicestream.com is an old APN for T-Mobile and isp.cingular is an APN name for AT&T data modems and netbooks.
    Switching APNS
    Typically, your APN is auto-configured or auto-detected for your phone or tablet and you don't need to make any changes to the APN on your device to get data service on your device. Wireless carriers have different pricing for different APNs; switching from one to another can change you from one type of data plan to another, but make a mistake and it can also cause problems and additional charges on your wireless bill, so fiddling with the APN isn't advised. However, there are a few reasons people switch their APNs or modify them:

    The APN settings are not correct (you get error messages like "Could not activate cellular data network. You are not subscribed to a cellular data service").
    You have an unlocked phone and want to use it with a different carrier.
    You're on a prepaid plan and don't want to spend your minutes on mobile data.
    You're traveling outside of your wireless provider's service area and want to avoid data roaming charges.

    Examples:
    T-Mobile's APN is epc.tmobile.com; AT&T's iPad APN is simply "broadband" (without the quotes), T-Mobile Sidekick APN is hiptop.voicestream.com
