Iphone 5 restored from iCloud. No Cellular Data AT&T.
Searched the forums for this issue and I haven't seen it yet. I am on ATT and I restored my phone from a 4S Backup of my old phone. Once all the settings have been restored the cellular data no longer works. Wifi works fine however. I have reset the network settings done a hard and soft reset and nothing seems to fix it. If I restore and set up as a new phone cellular data works fine. Anyone else experience this type of problem? Any other ideas to fix it?

I have not tried that one yet. Didn't work. Problem is setting up as new I have several apps that I don't want to have to set up as new, such as a password app. I could backup my 4s to itunes and then restore the 5 from itunes, as I have been restoring it from iCloud. That will be the next thing I try. Any other ideas?

I would recommend restoring from your backup then turn the ☎ off for about half hour. If that doesn't work like it was siggested turn it off remove the SIM and turn it on when it says no SIM power it down and replace the SIM and reboot. You just want to reset the system. If all else fails take it in to an 🍎 store and have them swap it out. If the same thing happens get a new SIM. You might also need to contact the carier (AT&T or Verizon) they might need to re-activate your account. When I bought my 📱 4 they scanned the ☎ and SIM but it just wouldn't pick up my number and activate. I had to go in to the carier and they scanned the SIM again and this time it activated in their system correctly.can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460

Less drastic than restoring, maybe try
Settings -> General -> Reset (at the bottom) -> Reset Network Settings
This will clear saved wifi passwords so have it handy if you don't know it already.

So I have tried, reset all settings, reset network settings, restored from an iTunes backup, hard reset. I will try a new SIM card from at&t and then off to the Apple store if that doesn't work. Weird how data works though if I set it up as a new phone, but once I restore from any backup of my 4s it no longer works. The SIM card in this phone is the second one already. I purchased the iPhone5 on the Apple store app under a different number that had an upgdrade on my account. When I restored it with my 4s backup the first time a message came up. It said something like this phone is for phone # xxx-xxx-xxxx (the phone number I had used for the upgrade), that was after I had swapped SIM cards too. I don't know if that has anything to do with it?? Hopefully I can fix with a SIM swap. And if not hopefully apple has a phone in stock. No data is no bueno.. Thankfully I have wifi at home and work, so I have been able to use that.

I'm pretty sure when you go to the Apple Store they're going to restore the phone as new, see that it gets
cell coverage, and just determine that there isn't a hardware problem with your phone. But let us know how
Re: Iphone 5 restored from iCloud. No Cellular Data AT&T.
Made it to the Apple store and after erasing the iPhone I had cellular data again. The Genius was empathetic to my situation but there was no other option than to set up as a new phone. He said I most likely had a corrupt file causing the problem with no celluar data. So I spent most of the day re-installing apps and restoring things. But I've got a clean install now I guess.
