    That is because you need to have the full GPRS service activated on your Vodafone (Rs.499/- a month one) and the APN for the same is WWW and not portalnmms. portalnmms is for wap and mms, not full GPRS.

    You can take the Rs.499, 500mb free.

    APN for that would be www.
    To get the apn settings again, youll need to install the patch from Cydia called "APN Editing".

    See, you have to have a full GPRS subscription and unfortunately in India all the service providers charge you minimum Rs.499/- (except BPL who have come up with zero rental scheme but it costs a lot if you use like 100 MB) besides iPhone tends to use GPRS for everything so your Data plan should be sufficient so that you dont get overcharged. Regarding changing the APN setting, if you have bought an unlocked iPhone you already must be having the Cell Data Network feature enabled, so you dont need to worry about that. Else install as Aditya suggested APN Editing or goto http://www.unlockit.co.nz/ from your safari and change the setting there.

    you mean that you were able to "modify a .plist" to show you where to put in the apn info. (that at least in my book is not called hacking)

    anyhow, search for the t-mobile hack and and replace the tmobile specific info (APN , proxy server address , username and password) to Vodafone india specific info.

    Get ready for inflated bills though.

    you can change the apn by visiting the
    http://unlockit.co.nz/

    using safari and following the instruction.


    As for using GPRS/EDGE on vodafone, its expensive. You should have gone for Airtel. Airtel(in Kerala) has 1 year unlimited for Rs 1500 (Rs 125/month).

    ^^ Airtel in Mumbai sucks. So does their EDGE coverage here. More than half the city isnt covered.

    So, Id gladly pay 500 instead of 125pm for Vodafone's EDGE.

    Ok people I am your Savior.
    There is no need to do all that complicated shit.
    Follow these steps:

    Remove/ Uninstall any other APN you may have previously installed.

    1. Enable your wifi
    2. Open Safari
    3. Go to unlockit.co.nz
    4. Click continue
    5. Click Custom APN
    6. Select IN-Vodafone from carrier
    7. Click Create Profile
    8. It will redirect you to your setting and just click Install

    You are now done and can recharge with Rs95/month 2gb

    EVERYTHING WILL WORK!

    You can get better details at Vodafone India: Set up internet / GPRS on iphone - it worked - Page 9
