    In these days I will celebrate a month of inactivity. 3G is not working, when you give a solution...... Apple?!?

    I restored my iPad clean as a new iPad and 3G came back. But when I tried to restore my most recent backup, it went back to GPRS-only again.

    I did another clean reset and put my apps, music, etc back manually and 3G worked. So far, my 3G connectivity is being cooperative.

    My conclusion: my old dataset was tainted in a way I will never know. Somehow I'm able to say that 4.2.1 may not be entirely the culprit but it may have triggered something with what's already there.

    I lost all my games' progress and other stuff I couldn't export but it's all good. I was able to export most anyway.

    Oh well, I'm mobile again!

    Well what a pig's breakfast the upgrade to IOS 4.2 turned out to be. I only upgraded because several of my purchased Apps were upgrading to only work on IOS 4.2. I was enjoying the new functionality (while on WiFi) but then only a few hours after the upgrade, discovered the problem with 3G connectivity! I'm with Telstra in Australia and only just signed up for more credit last week. I am not as confident as all the guru's who post solutions on here, and I really appreciated the 3G connectivity more than changes that IOS 4.2.2 brought - so how to I downgrade back to IOS 3? Alternatively does anyone know when an Apple fix will be made available?
    Definitely regret upgrading now!!

    Same issues with optus backbone via thrid party retailers as well. Upgrade has killed my 3g and without any wifi access it means my iPad is an expensive brick!

    Same problem here, I'm in Jakarta, using provider 3 (Hutchinson), suddenly my iPad cannot connect to 3G, always stucked in EDGE. Latest OS is 4.2.1. Already tried to restore everything, well... it is back to 3G, but after restoring from my previous backup, 3G disappear again.

    It should be a software or setting problem. Right now, still consider to start up from scratch because it will be to hassle.
