    Default Iphone 3GS Problems

    Hi all, I hope some one can help. I bought a 2nd hand Iphone 3gs to use on an existing Vodafone pay monthly contract we have, It is a Vodaphone sim locked phone and works perfectly on calls and texting, but we cannot get the internet to work. I have sync'd the phone to Itunes cos I thought it might have been something to do with that but still no joy. Would I have to speak to vodaphone to change something there end for using an Iphone? At a bit of a loss as thought it would just be sim in and away we go. We dont have broadband at home as only on dongle (laptop) so cant see if it works on WIFI.

    Cheers H

    is the 3G showing next to the vodafone uk at the top Howard?

    then you need to fill in the cellular data network
    i would imagine all the details for this are blank ?

    this is in settings

    general
    network
    cellular data network

    Try the vodafone web site, or call them. I bought a Blackberry to replace my Nokia mid contract and like you calls and texts worked but no email or internet. A quick call to Orange, a few text messages recieved and a phone off an on, and all was working.

    Is your sim data enabled, have you used the internet previously on another phone ?
