i happily unlocked my iPhone in Australia and got it working on the vodafone network

to my surprise the phone automatically connected via gprs to retrieve data this worked for a few days a friend begged me to put in his sim card and see if it worked and it did but he did not have data on his account so no edge or gprs was active.

then i put back in my vodafone sim card and the gprs/edge no longer worked.

i have retored re hacked and still cant get this back to working though the phone part works fine still

could somebody explain to me the technology behind this so we may fugure out how the phone gets the data setting from the network?

Exactly the same thing happened to me. Please let me know if you find out a solution. I have tried everything without a success. ( m.ozyoney AT remivac.com)

It is been ten hours and my friends phone connects via edge without any problem. I think my friends card changed some internal settings which I cann not change manualy.

Still waiting for a solution

Ok, I found the solutions. 2 steps and very simple

1) Reset the network settings. Settings->General->Reset
2) reenter your edge settings

this should work
