Thread: Enabling EDGE on Vodafone India

  1. #1
    Default Enabling EDGE on Vodafone India
    Hi,
    Does anybody know how do enable EDGE for Vodafone in India.
    I know the APN settings:
    APN: portalnmms
    username:<blank>
    password:<blank>

    The issue is that it requires me to enter some proxy settings. All these other nokia/motorola/sony ericsson phones in the market have advance settings, but iPhone doesn't
    The settings for sony ericsson are at this link:
    http://www.vodafone.in/Vodafone/PnS/...gericsson.aspx

    I tried configuring the proxy as per the T-Mobile setting using this forum thread:
    http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5659

    but I haven't been able to get this to work.

    Can anybody help me on this? my Iphone firmware is 1.1.1

    It works for me perfectly on my iphone. It brings back the option of "Cellular Data Network" in the General/Network settings.
    I've had EDGE activated on my cell phone for the last four years (since it was Orange, maybe Hutch, even I've forgotten) so I'm not even sure whether it's Vodafone Live or Vodafone Mobile Connect.

    apn for edge is www
    portalnmms is for vodafone live which doesn't work in iphone.
    1st u send a message saying ACT VMC199 to 111.

    This is what worked for me.

    I was using a jailbroken 1.1.4 and then upgraded to 2.02. To my surprize I found that Apple has removed the ability to edit the edge ( APN ) settings on the new software releases and as a result of which my iPhone was not able to connect to the Vodafone Live - in India.

    The reason is because Vodafone India changed the APN from www to iphone which resulted in the new Software releases not to activate Edge.

    After hours of breaking my head finally I was able to fix it.

    The Fix.

    Downlaod

    carrier.plist ( RapidShare: Easy Filehosting )
    and
    preferences.plist ( RapidShare: Easy Filehosting )

    and then replace the files at the following location
    carrier.plist : /System/Libray/Carrier Bundles/Vodafone_in.bundle directory
    preferences.plist : /private/var/preferences/SystemConfiguration directory

    Do remember to back up your existing files. Thats it.

    i just want to know, after all this hacking & tweaking stuff, is there a way i can use the net connection (edge/gprs)as pay per use, as i'been doing on my nokia earlier. i.e. no rental, 10 paise/10 kb.

    iphone official activation requires monthly rental of 199. so is there a way out of it?

    thanks in advance
