Hey guys,

I bought bblite a few days ago just to try it out, but I haven't been able to enjoy it as it doesn't work with my iPhone 3G. I always get a popup error that says 'Could not activate cellular data network: You are not subscribed to a cellular data service'.

I've changed the APN which was originally www.iphone-vodafone.net.nz to www.vodafone.net.nz and it still doesn't work. I've rung the iPhone service twice and they can't seem to find out what the problem is. I tried my simcard using another phone and it worked just fine. I went in to the vodafone store, and the guy there tried his simcard on my iPhone, and it was working fine. But when it's my sim, it doesn't work. I even got a new sim today.

Can anyone suggest anything? Your help would be much appreciated. :)

The iPhone apn routes back to the www.Vodafone.net.nz apn have you tried a restore on your iphone? Just confirming your Sim works in another phone using the www.Vodafone.net.nz apn

Don't worry the person on the phone will know or call 0800 921021 and select mobile broadband support and get them to check

Do you know though if vodafone's planning to have unlimited data plan? Cos if I think about it, these two plans costs heaps already, and 512MB will probably not even last a month for me. Hehe!

Unlimited mobile data? Putting it nicely - forget it. It costs a hell of a lot more to deliver data over a mobile network.
