I have a Vodafone pre-pay sim in my Meizu M2 but am unable to access any internet pages when using data. Works fine on Wi-Fi. What am I doing wrong? Which settings do I need to change?

 

Thank you.

Check the APN is set to ' vodafone ' and have you tested the same SIM in another handset and any issues?

I checked the APN settings on MyVodafone, all good. Will try the SIM in another phone as I didn't think of that. Thank you

Why would data roaming need to enabled this makes no sense

MyVodafone is an App / web page not the APN setting on the actual handset, Sorry but you have totally lost me

No idea, could be todo with using non VF towers, or just the way NZ cell is setup vs overseas.

has data ever worked on the device?

 

 

 

i'd try toggling airplane on and off.

 

I've noticed this issue on VF lately in Auckland CBD (walking Nelson st -> Victoria West st), toggling airplane seems to resolve.

 

 

 

Personally i haven't logged a job as it's easier for me to simply just switch to my spark sim and have a solid service...

In MyVodafone, accessed on my laptop, there is a link to help pages which gives you the APN settings. Is this wrong?

I told you what the APN should be above ' vodafone ' does it match the APN on the handset under APN settings?

You only need 2 APN's one for internet access and the other for MMS / PXT

They are the APN names not the actual APN you need to view the details in these

The settings for the APNs are the same as it says on the Vodafone site... still no luck accessing web pages. Error message is 'webpage not available. Opps this page may be temoralily unavailable.' Makes no difference which pages I try.
