Have you tried just "internet" for the name and APN.

That should be all you need to set to get internet working.

SIP settings should be set as you won't be doing VoIP over mobile.

Try the OTA site

If your handset is not listed pick the next best thing

OTA = Over the Air, which means setting changes and updates are done over the mobile network directly to the handset, instead of being done manually on the phone by the user or updated via a computer.

How can they tell? Are you sure they aren't just saying that because they can't be bothered sorting it for you, seeing as you didn't buy from them?

And that phone would be closest to the W508 (or the vodafone model thats similar) wouldn't it, so maybe try those settings

Did you take it into a Vodafone Owned shop or a reseller like Digital Mobile etc


if it was the later I would not be surprised if they said that just to try sell you a phone.
