    Unable to enable the data service connectivity in android

    I am having an android handset with me which runs on android 4.0 ICS operating system. I wanted to access the internet in my android device, but I am unable to enable the ‘Data Service’ connectivity feature inside the android handset. Why is it so?

    Hello,
    Firstly you should mention about your handset model. No worry. In general most of the android devices have same settings.
    So you just go to Menu > Settings > Wireless and Networks.
    then just tap on more .
    It will show you the
    Wireless and Networks Settings.
    Then tap on '
    Mobile Networks'. You will see an option 'Use Packet Data', just check the box. This will activate your "Data Service" mode. Now you can enjoy the internet.
    (NB:Your network carrier must provide you the internet facility. If there is any problem with connectivity please contact the network Carrier customer care executives to provide you the internet connection.)

    Thank You

    If you are planning to activate the network connection through your Mobile service provider then you have to contact them for proper settings. Then Go to Settings --> Wireless and Networks --> Mobile networks --> Enable the data Enabled --> Press Menu --> Choose APN --> Add the settings--> Restart the device.

    If you are planning to do it via Wifi then . go to wifi settings --> pair the device with the connection its very simple.

    this may be because of Packet Data may be turned off..
    Packet data is responsible for sending and receiving the bits of data for using the internet facility..
    To enable the packet data..
    Go to Settings >> Wireless and Networks >> More >> Mobile networks >> you will see either of 'Data Enabled' or 'Use Packet data' >> activate this option..
    this should be enough to make your Data Service work..

    Hi,
    In order to enable data connectivity in your android phone you have to enter the "Settings" menu from the applicaiton drawer there you will be able to find an option as "Data Usage" under the Wireless& Networks option. There one selecting the Data Usage option you will be able to select the option to turn ON the Mobile Data by which you will be enabling the Mobile internet. Also please make sure that you have any Mobile Data plan so that the device will be able to connect to the internet without much cost.
    Hope this Helps.
