According to the documentation I have seen, the Vodafone K3715 Vodem stick can handle an EDGE connection.

If I insert a 2degrees SIM card (which according to the awesome johnr) it should work fine, but the V-Lite software tells me to "Insert correct SIM".

However, 2degrees runs an EDGE data network, don't they? And I'm in their primary coverage area. With this in mind, shouldn't the flashing light on the device display something other than GPRS? Does it flash red in an EDGE coverage or something? It flashes blue when I get VF 3G coverage.

Also...if this device is not SIM locked, why will it not let me use a 2degrees SIM in it?

Thanks in advance people :)

Yes 2D have a EDGE network which works over the 2G packet switch network

Thanks John, but it seems that the K3715 doesn't support EDGE? Or does the light still flash green as if it's GPRS?

EDGE is still 2G so guessing it would still flash green

Do a speedtest and see what speed you get this will answer if it is GPRS or EDGE

Thinking about it more I think you will find the green LED will flash at a different rate for EDGE compared to GPRS
