Default Opera Mini not working on 8820

Hi everyone having trouble with my newly acquired 8820 - Ebay, unlocked handset originally locked to Orange UK - and Opera Mini: I haven't got a BBdata plan, - hence I only get lower case gprs or edge - only my generic data plan that came associated with my mobile contract with Vodafone UK which worked perfectly on my previous handsets, Ericcsson P900 and more recently Nokia N73. I have downloaded Opera Mini over my wi-fi connection at home but can't get it to work: if I click its icon it will show a screen saying "Opera Mini" and below "installing" with a progress bar and after a few seconds a pop up saying "The application Opera Mini has requested a socket connection to

Don't ask this again for:" then two boxes to tick with the following captions "All socket connections" and "socket connections to"

At the bottom the two buttons: "Allow this connection" or "Deny this connection"

I would then click "Allow" leaving both boxes unticked and this would take me back to the screen saying "installing" with the progress bar slowly crawling forward. After a couple of minutes the arrows indicating communication with the network start flickering faster and the progress bar also starts to move faster seemingly indicating something is happening but in the end I get "Failed to connect to the internet. Go to with your desktop browser or contact your service provider for internet settings"

I have spoken to Vodafone who confirmed my APN settings are correct so I have been stuck here with this issue for a while.

Any suggestion/extra info gladly accepted. Thanks.
