TheToolman: I also have a 2G with a supaprepay card, and no edge. I went to a Vodafone shop today and they told me that data is enabled on all prepays but the import 2G uses "compressed" data so can't work. Sounded like crap to me, but I have the same issue.
!


I wonder where they get this information from? its not like it just comes out of thin air?

I went into look at a new TV the other day. What the guy in harvey normans told me about NZ's TV made me cringe. What he told me was completely false (but would of sounded plausable to a non technical person) but it was wrong.

Sales people talk on half of the company and Telecom (if I remember right or maybe not) was fined just recently for what their helpdesk told customers... (which was false)

johnr: If your partners SIM works fine then its not the phone



PM me i can fix it easy while sitting on the couch at home



John


If your still sitting on your couch fixing things :) Could I ask you why at Mt Wellington (Silvia Park) I have to drop back to 2G on my iPhone 3G to get a data connection. I get full signal on 3G, there was about 50 people total in the whole place (Star Trek :) and couldn't get to www.trademe.co.nz. Dropped back to 2G, and the site slowly came up. :-)

Any Ideas? Should I be using another APN, I'm using the default iphone one.
