    Modem 2.30.03
    8 GB

    Thank You In Advance

    make sure you have your APN settings set up for the data plan that you are on and it should work.

    what data plan do you have?

    it will be in
    settings/general/network/cellular network/ add it there under APN
    make sure you have data roaming on and 3G off.

    not certain what it would be for Sweden, try to google it, contact your service provider, or whom ever you bought the sim from.
    Perhaps they would have the answer for you.
    There may also be a member here that may know what APN settings are used.
    Follow this link it may help
    Sorry

    Rebel SIMs tend to have problems with 3G networks (as do all piggyback SIMs) - best ask in your local forums if anyone has one working on your network - different ones have different success on different networks.

    But if you are paying $1/Mb you could run up some very large bills! It is very easy to get through a few hundred meg in a month.

    I've got a rebel sim and I've not had any luck. I've got exactly the same phone as yourself as well and im on vodafone. I'm on the same baseband, o/s etc etc.

    I managed to get it to work for 5 minutes with a T-Mobile sim-card but nothing since. Its quite annoying. I'm just looking forward to yellowsn0w for O/S 3.0 coming out. Thats going to be the lovely. At the moment i've literally just got an iPod Touch until that comes out.

    REBEL v72 seems to have solved that problem.. you can download it from this link . I have been reading good feedbacks in other forums so try http://www.x-simcard.com/skin/fronte...lSetup3.4i.zip
