How To: Receive and send email with Vodafone (UK) over GPRS

Being the first time I have accessed this site I must apologise if this post is in the wrong group, or is in a FAQ. It does, however seem like a lot of people are having problems with email on their phone.

I use Vodafone (UK), and they were less than helpful and would not put me through to anyone who knew what they were talking about.

Through a bit of experimentation though, it is now working. I will describe a solution that worked for me on my 7650.

1. I subscribe to a GPTS price plan that allows data transfer (not only WAP).

2. I acquired an account at http://www.vodafone.net/ for free. (Lots of problems on that site!)

3. I disregarded the nice people on support line who said it would not be possible to access your email through a mobile phone (They thought I was crazy! :roll: )

4. The settings they tell you on the web site won't work (wrong GPRS Access Point).

5. After you have done points 1-4, do the following:

- Access the menu on your phone and go to: Tools->Settings->Connection->Access Point

6. Click on Options->New Access Point->Use default settings

7. Use the following settings:

Connection Name: <Whatever you like>
Data bearer: GPRS
Access point name: internet
User name: web
Prompt password: No
Password: web
Authentication: Normal
Gateway IP address 0.0.0.0

8. Go back and configure GPRS:

GPRS connection: When needed
Access point: internet

9. Exit and go to Messages to set up your mailbox:

Messageing -> Options -> Settings -> E-mail -> Mailboxes -> Options -> New mailbox

10. The settings should be:

Mailbox name: <Whatever>
Access Point in Use: Internet
My mail address: <yourusername>@vodafone.net
Outgoing mail server: smtp.vizzavi.net
Send message: During next connection
Send copy to self: No

Include signature: No
User name: <Your voda.net username>
Password: < >
Incoming mail server: pop.vodafone.net
Mailbox type: POP3
Security: Off
APOP secure login: Off

Hope that helps. Please let me know if this works for you or not.

Cheers![/list]
