Nokia N73 Vodafone Live Problems!

Hi All,

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

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

Homepage: http://live.vodafone.com

Load Imgs. & Sounds: No

Font Size : Normal

Default Encoding: Automatic

Auto Bookmarks: On

Screen Size: Select Keys Only

Search Page: www.google.co.uk

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

Homepage: http://live.vodafone.com


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,

Regards

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!
Homepage: http://live.vodafone.com
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

Thumbs up Services

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.

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
