I have been told that I can, but the vodafone call staff have told me that it will only work at lower speeds, not the full 3g.

Any one with any experience?

If the jasjam is 3G it will support up to 384k DL and 128 UL not the 3G broadband "HSDPA"

You should get handset info from the device maker as in this case IMATE

UPDATE

The device does support HSDPA so when in 3G Broadband coverage you should get DL speeds UP to 1.8 mbps and UL max 384

It has on the specs from imate that the handset supports HSDPA

Thats a bit rough

You can't expect customer service to know all the specs to every single handset made!

The only reason I know is cause its on the imate website and I bet its covered in your handbook for the phone

I spent 20 minutes on the phone with them and got passed through 3 different people.  I wasn't in the best mood by the time I finished :(  They keep trying to sell me a vodem instead.

Did you call 777 ? For any data related stuff, always call their data team as they have a few more clues. 0800 921021




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

The specs are always on the websites of the companies that make the devices!

Just go straight there

Imate supports its devices like nokia does

Right, cutting through the chease: yes, you can use it as a high speed modem for your PC or laptop. You can do this via Bluetooth or USB cable.

The linking of PC and phone is not supported by the service provider!

Vodafone have some info on there wireless portal site but the software you use to link them is written by imate

Dial up number for data is *99# no user name or PW

If you get through the IT channels you can save big bucks! I got mine from a local computer supplier, although limited quantity and maybe some deposit and preorder and a week or two of wait, you can save up to $500.

Up to you, but for my JasJam, it is worth 2 weeks wait.

I already have the phone, got it for about $1300.  Owing to a cock up by the supplier, I ended up with 2 but I had to give one back :(
