    Vodafone Help

    Last Monday I upgraded my phone as you do upon contract renewal, now ever since i sent off for upgrade I have been unable to send or receive picture messages annoyingly, didnt think much of it though.

    Today my new phone (n95 8gb) arrived, with all the bells n whistles (I mean for ****s sake its a phone I dont need to be able to connect it to my telly!)

    However it came with a new sim, which struck me as odd as always just transfered sim upon upgrade, now the new sim wont activate - tried the new sim in old phone and it dosent activate, also tried old sim in new phone and that works.

    Now I hear you say just whack old sim in new phone and be done with it - ordinarily I would do, but then lose provision of mms until vodafone get their act in gear.

    So anyone had a similar problem of inactive sims etc on contract renewal, or do any of you work for voda and can sort me out save me sitting on the phone for 90hours

    Hi mate, reason for the new sim is normally that vodafone have sent you a 3g sim card to used all the features of the n95, what you need to do is call customer car and they can transfer your number over from your old sim to the new one (takes couple of hours)

    Cheers - I assumed there would be somethin on new sim for functionality but at same time dont really see what would change as both phones are symbian series 60 with 3g jobbies.

    Then again voda's 3g was shite for past 18 months so left it on gsm


    Will see if they sort it from mail I sent this mornin failing that ring um tomorrow

    If you dont use 3g on the 95, make sure you run the phone on gsm not dual mode as the battery life will be sooo piss poor its anoying!

    i like my N95 Black. One of the better phones i've owned.

    I can't for the life of me get GPS to work - it never gets a fix but my gf's older N95 gets a fix just fine!

    Well I wont be changing number - as its just a renewal - so whatever vodafone wanna do there guess they need to sod one sim off and activate the other.
