    Unhappy Data is on, but can't access the internet

    Hi all,

    I have a weird problem with my Nexus 4. This happened starting this morning... my mobile data is on and I can access Facebook (app). However, this is the only app/internet access that works. Other apps such as Twitter, Gmail, NHL, whatsapp and Google Chrome can't connect online - it keeps saying you do not have internet access.

    I've tried restarting the phone and made sure that my wifi is off. On a side note wifi works perfectly fine - when I connect via wifi all the app connected to the internet just fine.

    Let me know if someone have an idea on how to fix this! Would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    It sounds like a very specific problem, but try this (I'm running a custom ROM so the steps may be slightly different);
    1. Open Settings
    2. Hit "More..." under Data Usage
    3. Open "Mobile networks" then "Access Point Names"
    4. There should be more than one APN, so select one that hasn't been selected
    5. Try and see if it works now

    Good luck!
