I sympathize with you. I was on Vodafone perpaid and I just gave up with getting EDGE to work on my i7500. Heck, I even spent a whole hour at there service center with one of there personnel twiddling with my phone - to no avail.

I still keep my Vodafone SIM around, in case they improve things. I really liked them. But, in the meantime, I've moved to Tata Docomo. It's not so difficult to setup EDGE on that.

The irony with Vodafone, is that when I had my E71, a message came over their network, with instructions on how to setup the GPRS, but nothing for the i7500.

Really wanting to go back to Vodafone,
chronodekar

EDIT:

I found this link please tell me if it worked for you,

@satan,

The settings for Vodafone APN Bangalore are as follows :

Apn: portalnmms
Proxy: 10.10.1.100
Port: 9401

Username: leave this field empty
Password: leave this field empty
Server: leave this field empty
MMSC: leave this field empty
MMS proxy: leave this field empty
MMS port: leave this field empty

MMC: 404
MNC: 86

APN type: default
Authentification type: Normal(PAP)

Hope the above settings help !! these are the settings i use on my mobile.
Note: I have this weird problem of being able to access EDGE only using the default browser.

@chronodekar

Try the settings mentioned above. Ur VODAFONE GPRS may just work

"Android phones do not support GPRS ?!?!"

What a load of bull from Vodafone. I used it from Kerala (after a LOT of hassle). Though, I moved back to Docomo. Vodafone blocks use of the android market and any non-HTTP requests. So, I dumped them.

soni.jd, I really wish I could help you.

Sounds like your carrier is blocking non-HTTP requests. Apart from bitching to them, nothing much to do about it...

I switched to Tata Docomo over this issue.

I too had the same problem. After spending hours with customer care I wrote the office. They too confirmed that Vodafone Live does not support Android phones. After another mail, One Mr.Ajit contacted me. Here is what I did.

Delete all existing connection.
Create a new APN : Name it "v"
APN: www

That's it. It immediately shows "E" Symbol on top and start browsing.

NO restart. As simple as that. Now I am browsing and it is really fast.

Hope it helps.

Guys,

Good news for all poor "Vodafone" customers....Vodafone has finally launched a service which is a combination of Vodafone Line + VMC..you can use VCM and VL under the same combo plan.
You'll be charged with Rs 198/pm with a bundled usage of 3 GB, Rs 250 for 5 GB and Rs 500 for unlimited data usage.
