Ahh, so it was only the data connection that did NOT work, your voice&SMS were resatored when you updated credit to the account? I missed that bit of information in the original question!

Now this leads to some interesting questions since basically all of the traffic both uplink and downlink are "data", just handled a bit differently...

Did you check what the established connection was, 2G, 3G, 4G?
Could it have been possible for example that your device was expecting to get 3G/4G data connection but network forced it to drop to 2G; that would have made CS calls and SMS available but prevented data calls?
