Lee, like a lot of other people posting here, I can't register the box.
I can't advise what other probelms are occuring because of the above. The SN is: 21223482296.
As for the handset, it can't suddenly just stop working - I don't accept that is the issue.
All these problems began to snowball after I foolishly contact support via the phone. The block went off & changed settignsd before I had the chance to question him because he didn't understand what I was saying (language issue with foreign call centres).

Digi, if you're happy to live this this shoddy service, that's your choicce.
It's part of the reason why tax dodging corporations like VF choose to behave in such a manner - because they can.
So please don't be telling me to chill out.
You might have nothing better to do but this is affecting the operation of my business.

All im saying is work with the forum staff not shouting your mouth off
But if you think shouting and screaming will get you somewhere goodluck

Ok, well I wasn't asking you anyway & as you can't actually assist in the matter, why don't you go & stick your oar into someone else business.
In the meantime, another day goes by without any attempt at a resolution.

I have same issue as everyone else on this thread, my VSS was working fine until a week or so ago. Now none of my phones or devices receive a 3G signal from the VSS even tho all the correct lights are on.
Work Blackberry, 2 x iPhone 4S and a vodafone data dongle.
Please let me know if you require any further information for troubleshooting and diagnostics.

Our VSS serial number is 21196807347. The Tech team on the phone have asked me to return it to Vodafone and are sending a packet for me to do this so an engineer can look at it.....
Is there anything else we should do before this, or will this resolve the issue.
Assume a replacement will be sent if it can not be fixed..

Lee, thanks for your time on the phone on Saturday.
I can report that the SS box is functioning AND..my primary handset is also connecting.
It wasn't at first, but then I checked the netwrok settings.
From the menu:
Settings>Wireless & Networks>Mobile Networks>Network Operators..
The selected setting was Vodafone 2G.
I changed the setting to Vodafone 3G.
All seems good.
It's odd because when I took an earlier call from your tech dept a couple of weeks ago, all 4 lights on the SS box were on & I could hear the caller perfectly.
What lerd me to check that was folloiwng the re-registering of the SS, I need to add the 2nd handset (Nokia E90). To do this, I needed to send & receive a text message ('cos I can never remember the number) & I needed to select GSM only & stand in the car parl to get a signal. Then I thought .. a-ha!
So, not withsatnding the other issues we discussed about the lack of information on the issues with registering & around the SS dashboard, settings & the fact that "owners" do not show up in the users list & that one can be an adminstrator or an owner etc., I am once again a happy chap.
I might also add that having read through "Sure Signal - Correct Lights on but not Picking up 3G Signal" from the troubleshooting page, the section on GSM & 3G could be improved to make it clearer as this setting on my handset is different to the article.
As of now, I am only waiting for the 2nd handset to be linked to my SS box.

Further to the telefone conversation 2 weeks ago after testing for few days with payg sim and connected with Galaxy S3 which stayed connected but my contract handset still disconnected and lost 3g.
So it maybe the handset that i have on contract that is causing the issues?

Thanks for your post here.
@ Smiler2, can you confirm exactly what phone you are having the trouble with as this can’t be seen on any of your posts?
@ Digicom, I have set myself a quick reminder to give you a call to morrow to discuss this further, can I ask if there is a particular time that you will be available.
