Most people would use phones bought here in New Zealand, but some still like imported handsets or have brought their own one in from other countries. Sometimes a handset would have corrupt settings or was wiped.

In most cases, the phone won't work with some of the Vodafone mobile services available, like mobile Internet (Vodafone live!)

First port of callEdit

If you've got a handset which Vodafone New Zealand has sold, chances are there are settings available to be sent direct to your phone. This is known as Over-The-Air device configuration.

What if my phone isn't on there? Or the settings still don't help?Edit

Then you're basically on your own - but thankfully, here are the generic tips and settings you need to get started:

Mobile data (WAP, VFNZ Gateway)Edit

This section is for WAP browsing, like Vodafone live! where you don't need a public IP address. If you don't know what WAP or IP mean, the settings here are probably what you need. If you need dedicated Internet browsing settings (like using your phone as a modem), see below.

PXT / MMS / Multimedia messagingEdit

TipsEdit

    I know my phone supports PXTing, yet I keep on getting messages to go onto PXTWorld to retrieve PXT messages when someone sends me one.

    It's probably because Vodafone don't actually know your handset is capable. The default action on a new SIM is to keep the messages on PXTWorld

    How do I change this behaviour then?

    Simple. Place the SIM into a phone that definitely works with PXT and send one off. That confirms that you have a handset which does definitely support PXTing. You can then place the SIM back into your PXT capable phone.
