Just wondering if other people are seeing this problem.

With the "Wifi" and "Mobile Data" turned off and "Enable 3G" turned on, if you then click on the "Mail" icon on the home page it says you need to turn on the "Mobile Data". There are two buttons to choose from, "Settings" and "OK". If you click on "Settings" and turn "Mobile Data" on, and then click on the "Mail" icon again I get an error saying "Cannot Get Mail".

I seem to be able solve it is by turning off "Enable 3G" and turning it back on again. Have other users seen this? Is this a known issue? When "Mobile Data" is turned on, does it take a number of seconds or minutes to register? Thanks

    Yes the issue does exist. Not sure what the issue is, but yes it is there. I personally haven't reported it, but I'm sure somebody has.

    I would suggest that you sit tight to see if the issue is fixed in the next firmware update. If do want to let Apple know then you can send them some feedback.
