    Tap Mobile data network/Cellular data network.
    Enter the following settings into the on screen form, without changing any other settings:
    Mobile/Cellular Data:
    APN - three.co.uk

    MMS:
    APN - three.co.uk

    Tap the left arrow at the top three times
    Press the home button
    On the status bar at the top of the screen, next to the name of your mobile network, you should now see a data connection indicator 4G, 3G, E or GPRS. This means the data connection is live and working.

    Optimal app settings are next on my list. Google seems to think default settings are the best.

    No use waiting for someone from freedompop to advise.

    If Cellular (Mobile) Data Network menu is missing, iPhone is not jailbroken and 3rd party apps don't fix it, you can install Three APN profile from http://www.unlockit.co.nz.

    I can't get these to work on a USB dongle - are there any more settings required? (Number, username, password)
