    This maybe another stupid question....and I know, I could always phone 191,
    but don't want to talk to some twat who knows nothing......

    Can I choose to use the traditional gsm instead 3G with my phone. I live in
    area that has network (just) for 3G but phone keeps changing between
    networks (old fashion gsm and 3G) and sometimes phonecalls do not get
    through. I'd rather have reliable connection but don't want to go back to
    N6600.....

    Hope this make sense....

    Why would a Vodafone phone (sic) lock onto O2?

    As I was trying to post before the system logged me out, check tools->
    settings->network settings-> network mode. That should be dual mode,
    change it to GSM only.

    As far as I've heard, some of the earlier vodafone branded 6630s had
    this menu function disabled so you need to get the phone updated with
    newer (hopefully non-vodafone branded) software. Just go into your
    local Nokia service centre and ask them to do it. In the UK you can
    fine it here:
    'Nokia Shops UK' (http://www.nokia.co.uk/nokia/0,,33684,00.html)

    Mate was well cheesed with his NEC and 3G, dropping calls etc. I got him the
    address of someone who could unlock it off the Net but he just tried a
    friends Vodaphone sim in for gsm and it wasn't locked anyway. Give it a try.
    Might not be locked.
