    On my HTC there's an app called "connection setup" which allows you to pick your network provider and it sets the various related settings.
    I couldn't see an equivalent on the 620.

    I think the problem is related to using a Tesco Mobile SIM.

    In "Settings" -> "Mobile Network", the "Data Connection" is "On".
    The "Network selection" at the bottom is set to "automatic".

    Any ideas please?

    If you have mobile data turned on than data is enabled, the network selection does not need to be altered, but make sure you have 3g selected in mobile data settings

    Thanks but that's not the case.
    I've just switched to Tesco Mobile and when I put their SIM in my HTC the data wasn't working.
    I ran the HTC Connection Setup app and it was then enabled.

    I'm asking here as my dad has bought an O2 Nokia 620 and he's also using a Tesco Mobile SIM.
    Unfortunately his phone doesn't appear to come with the "Network Setup" app which is mentioned in the "How to manually set up internet and MMS" guide on the Tesco site: http://simulator.tesco.wdsserve.com/...okia_lumia_610 (they don't do the 620 yet)

    Is it the APN that needs setting? Is there any other way to set that on a Lumia?

    If you go to settings there is the option "access point". I believe you can change and add your own APN there.

    Thanks for the advice.
    He popped into his local Tesco Mobile shop today and after "Access Point Activate" he's now got data.

    Go into settings/ mobile network and disable mobile data.

    This will stop programs that need to connect yo the internet
