Hi,
I just bought a parallel imported HTC Wildfire from EKing. I called Vodafone to be told they can't help me set it up, I called my local shop to be told the same. EKing has not replied to my emails, a bit disappointing. It is so frustrating...you buy a phone from overseas due to Vodafone's markups and then nobody can help you set it up!

So to all of the geeks out there, I need your help!

How do I set up internet in my phone? I have added the APNs and  pxt info I found on a forum, but it is still not working...any tips?

Also my HTC Microsoft Outlook HTC Sync sync application I downloaded from HTC is also not working. My computer is not recognizing my phone. From other forums, this seems to be a common problem with this new application. Any idea on how to fix it?

You should just have to put in the vodafone APNs and it should just work..
try adding a 2nd APN using a different vodafone APN and select that one..

APN Type: default (you need to type this in)


2nd MMS
Name: Vodafone NZ-MMS
APN: live.vodafone.com
MMSC: http://pxt.vodafone.net.nz/pxtsend
MMS Proxy: 172.30.38.3
MMS port: 8080
APN type: mms (need to type it in, this is important otherwise it does not work at all)

I have a HTC wildfire and got the same BS from Vodafone et al.

The settings above given for a Hero definitely worked for my Wildfire for data. I haven't checked the MMS ones yet, as I don't really use MMS, so can't comment on those.

Cheers - saved me $50, which is what I was quoted for doing it at a third party phone shop!

Are your settings exactly as above, ie even the mms has to be in lower case
