hm... when my friend showed me his iphone 4 the other day, we noticed something very weird. i have the 16gb version, him, the 32gb. we are on exactly the same version - iOS4.0.1

for some reason where my iphone says "Mobile data" and "mobile data network", his one says "Cellular Data" and "Cellular data network"....

can anyone offer any explanations?

Are you both on Vodafone? If not that could be the only explanation I could think of (different networks, different carrier settings?)

No idea sorry to be honest.....weird! I'm on Voda and have the Cellular Data Network option not the Mobile Data....you both running Carrier setting Voda NZ 7.1 (not sure if that would make a difference)
