O2 iPad settings for accessing data
This article relates to iPads obtained through the University's contract with O2.

When a user upgrades the version of iOS on their device the APN settings are automatically re-set. These need to be changed for access to data to continue to work.  This also applies when a user first puts a sim card into their iPad.

Go to: Settings>Cellular or Mobile Data>APN>

Remove: "ibrowse.o2.co.uk" and replace it with: "idata.o2.co.uk".  (lower case)
 
User ID/Name should be changed to: "vertigo"  (lower case)

Password should be changed to: "password"  (lower case)

Do not press the home button to exit.  Press ‘BACK’ until you reach the settings menu. Then reset the device by holding down the On button until the ‘swipe to turn off’ option appears. Turn off the device, wait 30 seconds and then restart it. 

Changing these APN settings should resolve any issues in regard to accessing data on either wireless or 3G.
