Im getting really dodgy 3g data performance on my hero of late.


It'll have at least 2 bars of 3g signal but when I go to do anything (gmaps, mail, MSN, browse etc) it will pause for a while/ages (no up or down data traffic arrows) and then start transferring data.(if at all)


Ive just takin it down to dunedin from wellington and it was crappy the whole way and the same to auckland the other weekend.


Im i using the right VODAFONE  APN? 


..............Or is the voda network just frustratingly crappy.

I just tested my sim in my old N95. It seems to be pretty speedy on 3g downloading gmaps, mail, limited browsing etc.

I entered VF NZ internet, www.vodafone.net.nz as the APN and also included VFNZ GW live.vodafone.com..
Do i even need live.vodafone.com?

Have you migrated from prepay to postpay?
