No data

I have 4 gig/month data and thought Oi used it. At work I went to look at my home email, no data connection.

I logged into TMobile and I am setup correctly, but my phone still does not connect to data.

I turned off wi-fi data and made sure my data is on/off/on. Still no data.

I had another co-worker check out my phone, but everything looks good to the Geek.

Now what? Can T-Mobile check why I can only connect at my home wi-fi and not my data source?.

Hi, Mike! No data when you're paying for a data plan is no good! What kind of phone are you using, and did you just activate it? Did data work previously with this phone/SIM combo or did you just suddenly start having trouble? We're happy to try to narrow down what's going on, but a few details would help! 😊

I have a Samsung 3. I don't use it much but at home so I guess it was connected to my home WIFI. I activated my phone in store last December so I thought it worked. I just don't us it a lot. My kids bumped me p from a flip phone. The phone works fine for my needs.

I went online to see my data is active and that my phone settings are good too. But if ?I access Google, I get the message "can't reach your feed at the moment, content was updated 2 days ago".

My phone an d texting work. Just no data

thx for any ideas.

Hey, Mike!

You mentioned you have a “Samsung 3”. Do you mean a Samsung Galaxy S3? Since it’s just data that isn’t working, there are a few phone settings you can check (your co-worker might have already checked these), but I have a hunch that it’s account related. Let's start by checking your phone. Try following these steps to make sure mobile data is enabled:

Turn on / off mobile data

  1. From the Apps screen, tap Settings.
  2. Tap Connections.
  3. Tap Mobile networks.
  4. Tap Mobile data to turn on or off.
  5. Tap the check mark to confirm.

If that doesn't work, you'll need to Community-2153 and can do so either via 611 or T-Force (our social media care team) on Facebook or Twitter. Please keep us updated on your data situation!

Happy Monday, Mike!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've had a chance to look over my previous reply to you. If so, did the steps that I provide work? Or have you gotten in touch with Customer Care yet?

Sorry, I have not. Trying now

I don't see the Connections under Settings. I checked under "more settings" also

Hmm! Can you confirm that you have a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3? Or is it a Note 3?

Sorry, I have a Samsung Galaxy S3.

Thank you for confirming, @mv8167​! Were you able to get in touch with Customer Care? I still believe this is a provisioning issue and would need to be taken care of by our Tech Care team. You can get in touch with us by dialing 611 or visiting T-Force via Facebook or Twitter.
