Hi everyone,

I've had this issue for a while now.

I'm unable to access any WAP at all (Telecom music store, browser etc.) and I can not recieve PXTs either. I'm assuming that these issues are related, but I can't be 100% sure.

I believe this is a setting and/or firmware issue, but the unit is outside of warranty and I'm reluctant to send it to Telegistics for a service.

Does anyone have any ideas of what I can try to fix this issue?

johnr: Telecoms service is not called PXT!

My apologies, I use it more as a colloquial term then a specific technical term. Most people I know generally use PXT as the term to define any picture based message :).

PXT is a brand Vodafone use for their MMS service.
Photo Messaging is a brand Telecom use for their MMS service.

You don't PXT from Telecom network.
You don't Photo Message from Vodafone network.

Pedantic, but true.
