| | Unlocked Vodafone UK 7100v - Lost WAP Browser
Please Login to Remove!
As per the subject line, I have a Vodafone 7100v, originally bought and
used by me from new on the Vodafone network. After the contract ended,
I unlocked it and switched to easyMobile until I decided where to go
next. As the phone is quad-band, it's perfect for me to use on my
visits to Canada, but whilst in the UK I need GPRS / WAP access so I
can access such things as train times on the move. However, since I
moved from Vodafone, the browser has disappeared from the device, and
when I try to access it via the 'convenience' key, it tells me "Your
device does not currently have any Browser Configuration Service Book
Entries. Please contact your service provider to enable the Browser on
I then upgraded the software to Vodafone UK 188.8.131.522, taking the option to clear everything off (after a back-up of course). This did give me a nice pretty theme, but still no browser. Now when I press the convenience key, I get nothing. EasyMobile certainly can't help me, but I have a few questions:
1) If I took the phone back to a Vodafone store, would they be able to
add the service book back onto the device, for a fee of course?
2) Are there any external programs I could use to gain access to WAP?
3) If I did a restore from the desktop software, from the time BEFORE I
unlocked the phone, would that restore the service book to the device?
Alternatively, if I purchased a Rogers PAYG SIM for use whilst I am in
Canada, would this allow me to get an updated service book when I place
it in, or OTA through a call to Rogers perhaps?
If anyone can help I'd be grateful as this phone otherwise meets my
needs for all I require it to do at this time (a phone I can use anywhere, with a bluetooth headset and basic calling functionality). Thanks for taking
the time to read this.
