Can anyone suggest where to start with the Connection Settings.

I have a recently NZ acquired rw6828 which worked nicely via for my NZ Vodafone-enabled internet and push email prior to a South African sojourn where I made the error of asking the local Vodacom people (with a SA SIM card) to add the connection settings for Vodacom. This never worked but several Vodacom people "played".

Now of course the phone won't work properly in NZ.

My limited understanding has it as thus:

I have the original NZ Vodafone Connections of: VF-NZ MMS Settings, VF-NZ WAP Settings, & VF-NZ GPRS Settings that I think should work/shouldn't have been screwed up (but what should they be or has the phone decided to not work properly?)

There are the additional Connection Settings:
Local home wi-fi, My Home Network
Vodacom GPRS Settings, Vodacom MMS Settings, Vodacom WAP settings

Or am I looking in the wrong place?

Cheers K

In Connections | Advanced, for Internet and Work select a connection that contains VFNZ Internet. Then edit it to make sure the VFNZ modem is selected - do not leave in automatic.

Since you have the configurations it should work. You could go a step further and ensure that Vodacom people didn't change the VFNZ connection condfiguration itself, just created another one.
