I have a Nokia 3220 which i have had for about 3 years
and it has never had this problem before.

When I try to connect to vodafone live it pops up two boxes
which say:

"Packet data connection not available" "Connection not available"
Haven't tried going on WAP due to credit charges so not sure if
it has the same problems.

I could not find a post on this so I thought I would ask.

Can somebody help me or point me in the right direction?

Are you sure the settings are right?
Nokia has a settings service which can send settings over the air.

Are you sure you're on the Vodafone network?

Find me on Twitter!

You shouldn't be charged just to go to the Vodafone live! page... But I wonder if your account is correctly setup - changes happen.

Take your SIM card and try it on another handset, one you know is working fine with a friend's SIM. If the error continues then it is your account.

It could also be a temporary problem with Vodafone's network. Try turning the phone off, remove the battery, wait a few minutes and try again.

Turning the phone off and taking out the battery worked.
I don't know why I didn't think of that. lol

There was a problem some years ago with early GPRS handsets that would go dormant and never come back, unless power cycled. It looked like Vodafone had changed some stuff in their network to fix this, however I am not sure it is the same problem. Glad it worked though.
