    Have you subscribed with Vodafone for vodafone Live, sure it does not come as standard on PAYG

    When you say it doesn't work, do you mean you don't get proper content formatting? or that you can't connect

    If you get what appears to be a couple of lines of text it will be down to the fact that they don't recognise the device. Also, the settings for contract and PAYG are different for Vodafone

    You need to contact Vodafone will will enable grps onto your PAYG sim card then the settings they send you should work

    Ok, call vodafone and check GPRS is enabled on the sim, If it its go into connections and use the info below to create a connection.

    You must have grps enabled on the sim

    There are two things to make sure of first as already said

    a) The SIM is data enabled
    b) You have the right PAYG settings (as VF use different ones for the APN for contract and PAYG)

    Prepay Customers should use pp.vodafone.co.uk for the WAP APN

    Even with these Vodafone Live will probably not recognise the 5800XM at the moment as they haven't launched it, they read the device User Agent string when it requests the homepage to format the content, all you will get is a couple of lines of text for devices that they don't recognise.

    But you would still be able to browse the normal internet e.g put google in and see if it displays the page properly

    Its due to the reason i mentioned. As the device isn't in the Vodafone UK portfolio yet (UK launch for 5800 is January) you won't be able to get Vodafone Live content properly.

    The reason for this is that they don't setup the backend until its been tested and the device is nearly ready for launch. your paying the penalty for having the device early unfortunately

    You won't have to change anything as the settings are right on the device, once the Vodafone live portal supports the device it will appear automatically
