Also, call Vodafone and check that GPRS *is* still enabled on your account. Sometimes they mess things up.

Sounds like hardware alright. , Nothing to do with GPRS or settings as you stated clearly.

The antenna's in them have a bad habit of coming loose. try dissasembling and checking to see it's still getting a good connection to the main board. be very careful on this. or running it right beside a cell-site. you might find it's that simple.

Do you still get the screen coming up asking for your PIN?
Have you done a hard reset?
