Do you ever use the RED SEARCH button? I know a few people are going to get sick of ansearing questions that have been talked about 100 times and a simple search would have founf the solution for you!

options - advanced options - TCP - where it says APN type wap.voicestream.com

leave user name and password blank...
Please use the search button next time so we dont clog up this bored with things that have already been talked about.
Thanks

You didn't have to be so mean about it. A simple "please search next time" could have done. Just my .02

Wouldn't it be something else in the APN field since he's in Vodafone and not T-Mobile?

I see what you're saying, but I also see where MythmbHurts is coming from. I'm an admin in another message board, and seeing people not search for answers gets in our nerves.

Too bad nobody answered his original request. He is on Vodafone and everyone keeps giving him Tmo info.

Try these and see if they help:

APN info: wap.vodafone.co.uk (Contract)
pp.vodafone.co.uk (PAYG)

Username: [email address] or
web

Password: user or
web

Gateway (if needed): 212.183.137.12

This is no help to you but I have a similar problem with vodfone and instant messengers (Verichat, IM+ and the like). I've not managed to connect any of these on ANY BB and I'm in my 4th model. It's not the 8100 it's the service provider and if you phone them they are no help.

but that wasn't his question - that was not even the answer he was looking for since it doesn't help him on vodaphone!

richardhurst:
something makes me think there shouldn't be anything in the user and password lines. just the wap.vodafone.co.uk in the first line.
but you've said you already tried that.
do you like opera mini enough to go thru all this? the bb browser on the 8100 seems so improved over the previous I didn't feel the need to "upgrade" to opera and I loved it on my 7100t. just my 0.02
