I recently purchased a Samsung U700, parallel imported. I have set it up for pxting and vlive etc and all work, except when i naviagate to the games or music section of Vodafone Live i get a message saying "There is currently content available for this device" i have checked and 90% of games support this phone and all music definetly should. Where am i going wrong, is this part of my settings for connections?

Parallel imported phones are not guaranteed to work with Vodafone music store because of the DRM and keys used that are not present on these phones.

Maybe maybe not that is the risk using a imported handset with non approved software

Im not sure i would call it a risk, saving $250 on the phone which vodafone have stopped me from giving them money on. I was perfectly happy to pay the prices for the games off the vlive service however overpriced, but if vodafone don't want what must be at least 80% profit off them i guess its their loss.
