Just thought I'd share this info in case others are having the same problems...I got my X1 on Vodafone last week, but was having some problems using the Internet with some apps, i.e. SPB mobile shell, Tomtom, Facebook Panel and Yahoo Go.
Basically, the Internet worked fine with Vodafone Live and Vodafone Find & Go but not with the other programs, i.e. when I was trying to update the weather in SPB Mobile Shell or use the Facebook panel.
I looked through the settings and it looks as though it connects to the Internet via a Proxy server (Vodafone's) for some reason....so I found out how to get around it.
- Settings (in start menu)
- Connections (tab)
- Connections (icon)
- Advanced (tab)
- Select Networks
- Click on New
- Call it MyGPRS
- Click on the Modem Tab
- In the first option, call it Vodafone wap
- Select Cellular Line (GPRS, 3G)
- Click Next
- In the first option, Access point name = wap.vodafone.co.uk
- Click next
- Username = wap
- Password = wap
- Leave Domain blank
- Click Finish
- Click OK twice
- Go back to "Select Networks"
- In the top drop down, select the new connection you created (MyGPRS)
- Click ok
You should now be able to use all the Apps, but the vodafone live services dont work....unless you change your connection back to My ISP. I can now use BBC iPlayer (only over WiFi) though.
Anyone else experienced this problem? Can you shed any light on the situation for me please!
Thanks, and I hope this helps someone :)
