Unlocked Bold on Vodafone Italia
I have a BlackBerry Bold that I purchased and use with AT&T in the US. I called AT&T and asked for and received my unlock code which I entered and it works fine (tested with a TMobile SIM). I am in Rome, Italy studying abroad for a year and would like to use my Bold on Vodafone's network here in Rome. I purchased a prepaid SIM card and put it in and the phone makes outgoing calls fine. However, I would like to use Data such as sending/receiving emails, BBM, web applications (google maps, facebook app, appworld, etc.), MMS, and just search the web in general. At first when I tried to go on the BlackBerry browser it didn't work (just loaded and nothing came up). Then a day later I tried again and it worked and brought me to a vodafone live page. I can use the google search that (italian results only) is on that page but nothing else. If I try to manually navigate to a website, it will give me a message telling me that it can't connect.
How can I correct this to make my phone work like it did on AT&T only with Vodafone's network? Do I need to change my plan? Do something with the phone's settings? Is there another network that would work better here in Italy?
Any help would be appreciated.
