Unfortunately, the menu system on china phones is not so obvious as SE or other known brands. Wondering if anyone here has experience in setting up GSM data on their generic phones eg R9 or Nokia generic, since I went to 2degress and got the info, but since the phone is unknown, they cant send me settings even using the IMEI number. I attempted manual settings, but there are so many options the obvious is not obvious.
Thanks,
Alistair.

I have set up numerous phones so PM me with your details and i can see if i can help.

its probably worh giving it a stab first using the settings from the sticky at the top of the 2degrees forum. if you don't know the answer for a specific field just try leaving it blank.

I also can help with this, I used to work for Chinavasion.com china a reasonably large (consumer level) Chinese phone exporter, had to help overseas customers with this regularly, occasionly things didn't work because the Chinese phones did not have the full complement of features they were advertised with, due to a total lack of integrity of factories/ salesmen. Oh they were the days!
