Voda X1 - Messenger

12 posts in this topic

Hi

I have taken delivery of a Vodafone branded X1 and am using my t-mobile SIM in it. Normal browsing etc all working splendidly. One issue I am having is that I cannot use MSN. It came installed on the device but will not recognise that I have a data connection (Wi-Fi or T-Mobile 3g).

I am guessing that it is someway tied to only using a Vodafone connection but thats just a guess and probably not very well informed. Anyone have any ideas? I have ensured that the phone is set to use the T-Mobile APN when it wants to connect to the Web.

Help please?

I've got the same issue, it seems all the default windows apps (mail, messenger, live and ie) all try and use the vodafone connections.

In Start -> Settings -> Connections -> Connections, on your main connection, see if the proxy setting is ticked - if so, untick it.

Hi Paul

Thanks for the reply. I have looked at that and the Proxy was not ticked.

Strange...

I've tried unlocking the Vodafone connection settings (registry entry needed changing to 0 for readonly) and changed them to the tmobile settings. It looks like messenger (and the email app too) just flat out to refuse to connect to anything other than the vodafone connection with the default vodafone settings.

Did the registry change work?

The registry change unlocked the connections so they could be modified, but windows live now doesn't even try and connect.

You need to edit the registry HKLM\Comm\ConnMgr\Destinations\WEB and My ISP \Read Only set to 0. Then go into settings\connections\connections\my ISP and add your settings. You will also need to go into advanced\select networks and change it to WEB and edit and do the same.

Don't forget to remove the vodafone proxy information from the proxy tab.

That was the information I used from the XDA-developers forum to change the MyISP and WEB connections

I've tried 2 different registry editors and both come back with Access Denied when I try changing the values

as it turned out i didn't need to apply these registry changes, you can create a new connection and make it the default without needing to edit the predefined vodafone ones
