Welcome to Vodafone Community
I have been visit China for about 10 days and I switched my mobile internet off during this period to avoid the cost. The gentlement told me that my mobile internet will be switched on 12.00 pm 02/10/2011 but I still cannot connect to internet now. I called and a lady tole me that I may need to do manual rom(I suppose) and she will send me a message. I still have not receive the message and my phone cannot connect to internet. My phone is HTC desire. What can I do?
Worth trying a manual roam as this can sometimes update your status on the network. To do so on the HTC Desire follow the below instructions:
Press the MENU key
Touch Wireless & networks
Scroll to and touch Mobile networks
Touch Network operators
Touch Search networks
Select a non Vodafone network
Repeat the process to reselect Vodafone
If you still have problems then worth checking your internet settings, here (listed on the right of the page)

I have done the manual roam but I still cannot connect to Vodaphone internet. I used a O2 SIM card and my phone can connect to internet with O2.
It sounds like the GPRS is still stuck to the Chinese network. I would recommend a battery pull as doing a manual roam will update the GSM side of things.
If you dial *#105# this should give you 2 dates. If the 2nd one is up to date you should then be able to use the internet.
Please let me know how you get on.
I got my battery out and tried manual roam and dial *#105#, the 2nd date is not up to date and still in china-unicom, what can i do?
