Sorry Pete, can't help with this one. I've not come across Vendor ID 608 before.

Just on the subject of 3G bands, I noticed something strange when I got my Voda UK 9900. Their previous BB models always had 3G bands 1, 2, 5 & 6 prior to the 9900, but this one had bands 1, 4 & 8. Obviously the UK and most of Europe use 3G band 1 (2100MHz) so that didn't really matter, but I was curious and after a bit of research I think I found the reason for the change. Ofcom at that time had freed up and released band 8 (900MHz) for additional 3G usage in the UK. I believe O2 are now utilising this frequency, and Vodafone were probably trying to future-proof their 9900's with that in mind. This is even more poignant with the recent announcement that O2 and Vodafone are soon to be sharing cell towers. Could just be a coincidence... but it kept me busy for a few minutes
