View Full Version : Nokia N73 Vodafone Live Problems!

11-08-2006, 07:07 PM
Hi All,

Im new to this forum, so sorry to all bother ya with my problems! :rolleyes:

I have just signed up to Vodafone Anytime 200, 500 Texts etc.

The phone is a little beauty, but there's one problem. I can't get on to Vodafone live.

I have been on the phone to Nokia about 10 times, checked my settings, but still won't work. When I try to get onto Vodafone live i get the message, "Packet Data; Packet Data - Connection Not Availble"

These are my settings according to Vodafone:

Access Point: Vodafone Wap


Load Imgs. & Sounds: No

Font Size : Normal

Default Encoding: Automatic

Auto Bookmarks: On

Screen Size: Select Keys Only

Search Page:

Rendering: By Speed

Cookies: Allow

Java/EMCA script: Enabled

Security Warnings: Show

Conf. DTMF sending

Under the EDIT settins of Vodafone Wap I have:

Connection Name: vodafone wap

Data Bearer: Packet Data

Access Point Name: internet

Username: web

Prompt Password: No

Password: wap

Authentication: Normal


Can someone using a N73 on Vodafone take a look, to see if their settings are the same?

Is anyone else having problems at all?

Hope to hear from you,

Vodafone live only seems to work if I go to the main menu and go to Services.

If I use the shortcut on the desktop or the top right hand button it won't connect to vodafone live and says 'Web: unsupported content type' yet it does go to any other website without a problem - any ideas people??

pauldicker: It looks like in your case you are using the wrong access point anyway, in my settings I use the following:

Access point: Vodafone live!
Load imgs. & sounds: Yes
Font size: Normal
Default encoding: Automatic
Auto. bookmarks: On
Screen size: Select. keys only
Search page:
Rendering: By speed
Cookies: Allow
Java/ECMA script: Enabled
Security warnings: Hide
Conf. DTMF sending: Always

Hope that helps!

This is because Vodafone Live is a wap portal. The Web application that comes one the N73 can not handle WML / WAP pages. Therefore if you try and access it through Web it wont work.

You must access it through the Services application

Na, I have checked the settings, all seem to be fine.

Comes up with a Error Message:

Packet Data:
Packet Date

Connection Not Available...

Im totally stuck... Vodafone have said they are clueless too...

The Services app worked perfectly! :) Without the suggestion, I wouldn't have even known the program was there. I was so impressed by the web browser that I wouldn't have expected them to include a separate one just for WAP. :con?

Just to let you know that this issue I had was due to a faulty SIM card. I got this replaced at my local Vodafone store, and all was fine!

Not sure if anyone knows this, but Vodafone Live can be accessed by holding down the 0/Space/i button on the keypad.
Always do it that way myself, it's quicker;)
