just expeirenced this problem a few hours ago. whenever i send a sms from my wife's phone i don't receive it. nor do i get the sms from AT&T to view my minutes or balance. Whenever i open up safari i get a messages that indicates, "could not activate cellular date network: PDP authentication failure".


- i turned the phone off then on
- i held the home/off button for a reset
- did a back up

still same problem. Is it a sim card error or what?

ok this problem is fixed. called Apple and they fixed it from their side. now i have another issue. everytime i log on to my iTunes i get the set up your iPhone screen. it gives me two options. set up as new or restore from a date. well i restored from a backup earlier today and after completing it's process it'll disconnect from iTunes then connect again to the same screen. i can't even add music or video cause this screen pops up. anyone know whats going on?
