I've just received the new xda Flame. All is well, apart from the fact that I can't get 3G broadband working. I have a sim2 and I was told by Vodafone New Zealand to to set up the GPRS to, which I've done, but it still does not work.

Please help.

Do you mean you can't connect to the Internet at all or can't use 3G?

If the problem is 3G, open the Settings, Phone and make sure the band is Automatic. Australian devices are coming with 850 MHz by default, which doesn't work in New Zealand.

Hi there,

I can't connect at all. I'm using the same GPRS and MMS settings I've used on my XDA Atom.
The band selection is on auto.

Been to a vodafone store and had one of the techies set the phone up. It works now. Only thing is, the settings are exactly the same to what I had it ?! They charged me $50 for this. They would not tell me what they did, so I'll have to cough up $50 everytime I do a hard reset !
