Default Help in setting up 5820 for vodafone uk

Please Login to Remove!

Can anyone help me as I'm in a real mess!!
I've purchased a 5820 which has been unlocked, however I fear i may have deleted some crucial files as when I switch it on with a vodafone sim, which has been gprs activated, the phone works and gprs comes up in low case, however it returns the message "data connection refused", as a result I'm totally stumped as for what to do next.
Any advice would be gratefully recieved.

By the sounds of it you may need your service books sent down to your device? Couple of ways you can go about this, if you use the BWC (Blackberry Web Client) you can login and under "options" there should be a send service book option, click that to have a new service book sent to your BB. Another option you can try is on your BB go into options ---> host routing tables ---> click wheel ---> register now. Otherwise you may need to contact your carrier to see whats up?

I don't believe that "data connection refused" has anything to do with service books.

beanster - are you sure that the Vodafone SIM card is set up with the BlackBerry Data Service - which is different that GPRS service. Data connection refused indicates that the SIM card is not authenticating with the BlackBerry network. Not a service book issue.

Did you call your carrier to add the "BlackBerry Plan" to your existing SIM card? You can't just use GPRS or a plain old data plan, you have to extend it with a BlackBerry plan.

I'm assuming this was purchased from ebay? Anyway, no, unfortunately you will need a BB data service to take advantage of full service.

Its about time ebay made some requirement for sellers of Blackberry to make more clear that subscription is required, all too often the device is sold as "....best pda email device in world" in huge font and then somewhere obscure is small statement about subscription etc.

Its still a reasonable device, unfortunately the 5820 does not support voice calls except via the handsfree cord, so usage of this device will be somewhat limited.

Really T-Mobile UK offer some excellent data packages now. For 10 you get 50mb of email/data which isnt bad.

Alternatively, if you dont want to pay subscription you will maybe have to look at some of the alternative pda's on the market.

There is a piece of software for Treo 600.650 and Tungsten W called chattermail. You install it, use your standard gprs connection and it gives you push email via your imap inbox (imap is easy to setup, plenty of free providers). You can trial it for 30 days then choose to buy or not. Think its about $35 per year. Probably the closest to a Blackberry you will get without monthly data plan.
