Upgraded my operating system and can't restore my backup....!!!?%^"

So..

Can somebody please provide me with the Vodafone New Zealand GPRS settings for an i-mate JAM.

As Club I-mate seems to have a setup file for most other Vodafone countries but not New Zealand, and haven't been able to get the settings provided by Vodafone NZ to work.

Info would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Have you tried http://wireless.vodafone.co.nz/ . It has a neat OTA (Over the air) config that can be sent to your phone :)

Thanks for the thought. Unfortunately the site only supports a limited number of pda's and the i-mate jam is not one of them. However, I've just about figured it out from some i-mate pocket PC instructions which are provided. Thanks.

I was going to say this... If you go to the Vodafone website and check the i-mate configuration, it will be the same for the JAM.

The problem is that Club i-mate should have the Vodafone configuration. It seems it happened before to Smartphone2 owners (myself included) that their IMEI were not listed as being in New Zealand - hence no Vodafone config file was available. I've complained to Vodafone, but like so many other contacts with them, it seems it went to a basket of "not to worry about" cases.

Yes, I do use Vodafone for my personal mobile needs, but I also have a Telecom Harrier. Can't say one help desk service is much better than the other, but I'm finding my contacts with Vodafone more and more being less satisfying in results.

Yes, it certainly appears that Vodafone NZ has become just another complacent corporate.

With the i-mate pocket pc info and after some fiddling on the jam the GPRS settings are working now.

Vodafone aren't even capable of keeping their website up to date. I wonder how many Vodafone staff look at the main page every day and cringe when they see feature content advertising the Dunedin fashion week that expired a month ago?

"Vodafone aren't even capable of keeping their website up to date."
Most of us aren't either.

But this is getting more and more off topic. I was going to post a couple of 'problems' I have with them also but then deleted them because it will just derail the thread.
