My iPhone 5 with iOS 9.2.1 suddenly cannot connect to the internet, neither via cellular data or wifi. All applications that requires internet connection are unable to reach their server. I was in the middle of texting using WhatsApp when this happens, and this is my 2nd time experiencing this (the previous one I was able to get my connection back after restarting iPhone).

I can confirm I have an active internet connection on from my telecom provider and ISP. Tried restart/force restart/reset network connection but without success.

  • Try to install a ping app and ping your router or google.com. Do you have a configuration profile installed? (Settings > General > Configuration Profiles) Do you have a VPN installed? – Chloe Mar 21 '16 at 4:37

    Figured it out. Turns out there is a VPN profile with on-demand connectivity enabled. After disabling it connection back to normal. Thanks Chloe for directing me to the answer. Can you reply it on answer section so I can mark it as the solution? – randms26 Mar 21 '16 at 6:09

Check to see if you have a VPN connection set up. Settings > General > VPN.
