Cell data suddenly stopped working

iPhone 6+ on 10.2.1 I updated yesterday and my data won't work. I have data turned on but the 3G (my carier doesn't support LTE)doesn't appear at the top of my screen. I've tried toggling Airplane Mode off and on, Cellular data off and on. I did a hard reset (home +sleep wake), and I reset network settings. Still no dice.

Any suggestions?

This link may be stating the obvious, but you never know.
Good luck!



NB: I see you've tried almost all obvious fixes, but maybe not this one from the last link:

Turn Off SIM PIN

Turn off SIM PIN, if you have accidentally enabled it. SIM PIN is used to prevent access to cellular data network. If you want to use cellular data, you need to enter the PIN when you swap SIM cards or happen to restart your iPhone or iPad (Wi Fi + Cellular Models) . One thing is to be remembered, it applies to devices that works with SIM card.

Step #1. Launch Settings app.

Step #2. Scroll down and tap on Phone.

Phone App Settings in iPhoneStep #3. Tap on SIM PIN.

iPhone SIM Pin SettingsStep #4. Switch off SIM PIN.

Note: There are some carriers which provide default SIM PIN enabled with their SIM Cards. You can contact your carrier to check your default SIM PIN.
