OH, and one additional note....

Any unlucky soul out there like me, who has a 3G phone, but can only access the black and white Vlive page, not even the one with images, much less 3G???

... :( I just bought a V802SE (with Z800i software) from student shop online, they told me it works with NZ vodafone 3G, but it doesnt.... I should have read some post here before I bought it... anyway this V800 I bought, the GPRS doesnt work, vodafone sent me the settings and I used it. VFNZ Internet... doesnt work. It just says connection error or something like that anyone has the same problem? never happened to my K700i or iMate before..

okay now the GPRS and WAP are working, I can connect to the Vodafone Live homepage, now how do I test if my phone can play 3G TV or movie clips?? thanks :) There is a "Streaming settings" in the connectivity, do I set it to "vodafone gateway (live.vodafone.com)" or "GPRS Internet" (www.vodafone.net.nz)

vodafone gateway should do you fine. I dont think you'll have too much luck getting to the 3g services controlled by vodafone live but let us know how it gets on

To the person who suggested reading out a working V800 - That's not possible I'm afriad. The protection on the phone is a bit too good for reading out.

Even if it was to be read out, it needs to be read out before the phone is ever turned on, or before it's been turned on from being reflashed. The reason is that the filesystem is flashed to the phone in a compact format. When the phone's powered on, it "unzips" that file and spreads the contents of it everywhere on the phone's filesystem.
It's then impossible to use those extracted files to generate a working flash file.

Yes Video calling and highspeed data will still function fine.

It's just the 3G Live! portal that won't work.

It appears that Vodafone don't allow you to update your Z800 from SEUS either for some reason.

Why does it say no service for devices belonging to my operator then? Vodafone is my operator

Exactly what I thought, how is it Vodafone's business if I have a Z800 and not a V800
