| | Problems with Unlocked 8110 Abroad
Please Login to Remove!
I have an unlocked 8110 (my provider, Vodafone UK, gave me the unlock code). I'm in Ireland this week and have plugged in an Irish Vodafone Pay as You Go SIM. It works fine as a phone and I can send and receive SMS etc.
However, I'm only getting "gprs" rather than "GPRS". I've called vodafone and they say I'm permissioned correctly, and I've put in the Irish Vodafone APN (live.vodafone.com). I can browse the web, however, both my jivetalk and GMail application can't connect. In addition I can't send or receive email from my BIS email account?
Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do? I'm here for a week (and will be coming here regularly) so am loathe to pay high call charges and data charges by using my UK SIM.
