Vowney / Verne V5

Recommended Posts

I have found my vowney to be very tough. I have dropped it once onto the co-op floor and on a hard wood floor at home without a scratch !!

But don't drop it on the street! The glass covering the camera is shattered, but I've replaced it with some transparant tape :). Also a lot of dents on the back cover. My own fault of course.

Dropped mine face down on a tiled kitchen floor and smash! - Still usable, even with half the glass hanging off!

ive had my vowney fall of its car magnet onto the floor in the car a few times and only thing ive noticed it front black bezel as a slight chip, im still over the moon with my v5 , ive noticed you can now buy it for £106 , which is wow a lot of phone for so little money. but like everything in life if only , like if only the compass worked , if only the gps was a little better, still love the phone and hope some more custom roms come out.

The silicon case from i9080/i9082 fits very good at verne v5 and on ebay it cost 0.99£!!!. The camera hole is a little down but its possible to take a picture, it doesn't affect the photo.

The case that i bought doesn't have a hole in the vol and the power button, so i crop it.. The holes in other case i think are a little up related to verne v5 but you can fix it

I emailed vowney about 3 months ago regarding when they would release a gel case , and was told they would not because it spoils the slim looks of the phone and replacement back shells were so cheap, I have just ordered one of these as its a uk seller so should have next week price £1.99 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=400546486511&var=670124447509

Hello everyone!

 

I have a huge problem and I don't know how to fix it!

 

I can't get no 3G data connection in my V5. I put the micro-SIM and when I connect "Data Connection" it seems to be connected to the default APN but no Internet, no signal what so ever. Can anyone knows what is going on? Did I get an deffective V5?

I've also tryed my Vodafone micro-SIM on my girlfriend's Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini and it works fine so the problem is from my phone.

 

I'm running Tillaz custom ROM (R2) with the settings patch from the other post. I've also try to install the original ROM but with no success.

 

If anyone has any clue of what's going on please help me.

Seems like I'm the only one with no 3G connection at all! :/

Have you visited the website of your company? In the FAQ section usually appears the explanation...

I'm in Portugal and I'm from Vodafone and my 3G Internet connection doesn't work.

I've tried the TMN Operator micro-SIM of a friend and it worked!

These are the frequences of the operators that i talked about:

 

TMN - GSM 900/1800 3G 2100mhz
Vodafone - GSM 900/1800 3G 2100mhz

 

Mine is the one with the lined below. They seem to have the same frequences so why mine doens't work and the other does?
