Hi all,

I've been researching this wee problem all afternoon and have gotten not much further than pointing out a broken link to vodafone which once fixed finished in a cul-de-sac.

I was given a Nokia 6280 a couple of months ago and can't send pxt on it as it's default configuration is set to Vodafone Australia.
Despite much hullaballoo this unit has never been released here to date (a shame, I love it).

I have tried going through this helpful post's (Generic Data Settings For Vodafone NZ Phones) instructions but am new to mobile configuration settings. There are a few differently named branches in my phone's menu system.

On the account VFNZ GW ( I set this as a Web account):

Homepage = right?
In its Access point settings:

Do I need proxy enabled?
What is the correct data bearer setting: GSM or packet data?

I presume it's packet data, and if so: what is my packet data access point? Network type: IPv4 or IPv6?

I have also set up a new MMS account, currently named "pxt setup" - does the name matter?
What is the correct server address for this? What are the correct access point settings?

If I'm not providing enough detail or missing information please guide me to what I left out.

I'm not too worried about email or vodafone live functions for this phone, but would like to be able to send pxt.

And yeah, my first post and already I'm asking a lot... but it looks like a place I'll stick around and learn on Smile

Thanks in advance



D'OH Why is it always just after you wave the help flag that the answer appears (some may argue for divine intervention :)

I tried the Nokia website

and a 3rd party service sent me the settings via sms. My pixt seems to have gone out and has hopefully been received. If it didn't work I'll post back here, and if it did I hope this helps someone else.

Over and out

Last Edit (I promise)  it works hip hop hooray...Laughing 

For anyone else:  don't let Vodafone NZ cold shoulder you and try the manufacturers website (it worked for my Nokia...)
