Since i can't afford a nice sony v800 and the C975 does what i want I want to buy from englands 3 network and unlock it or buy one from a paralell importer and put it on the vodafone 3G network. How does vodafone setup 3g phones, is it by SIM card? Will i be able to watch TV on this phone since the screen res is the same as most opther phones? Will video calling work?
If these features dont work then perhaps i would be better off with a sony k700i or moto E398?

Thanks for any help- Ben

Please read many other threads about this but only approved Vlive handsets with firmware are allowed access to the 3G content. Video calls no issue.

Cheers. How do you normally access the TV feature? is it in the live3G menu? I didnt find any threads about connecting different phones but if you know of any please give the links.

You realise the "Mobile TV" is not really live TV, but only video clip streaming and downloading, right?

Anyway, only the handsets approved by Vodafone New Zealand will have this feature - even if a handset is compatible with 3G networks oversears, it may not work in New Zealand.

Yea i did. Looks like i might as well just get a E398 and wait for 3g to get a bit cheaper. Thanks for your help.

IF YOU WANT TO USE ALL OF VODAFONE NZ'S 3G SERVICES


Buy a Vodafone endorsed phone from an authorised vodafone retailer eg: first mobile, dse...

You will have all the services they offer and potentially have to pay a bit more than through a PI but its guaranteed and you have a clear line back to Vodafone if you encounter problems

so how much are download rates with 3G? I think i will just get the E398 cos it plays mp3s and i can use new firmware to make it have iTunes and video capture.

Check this article... Anything outside the main Vodafone live! site and downloads are charged apart.
