Its android based so apps run in the background. I downloaded APN ON/OFF widget frm the market and problem solved. Switch it on when u goin on web if your not using WIFI, otherwise leave it off. U can still make calls, recieve/send MMS, and use wifi etc.
In Kenya, safaricom just re-branded it, but it is still a Vodafone- Huawei deal. Does this phone support corporate push email like the Nokia E Series?

Zakmwash, 30 Dec 2010Hi guys, i just wanted to know the connection between huawei and vodafone because in kenya thi... moreHuawei is a chinese company that manufactures various phone models including vodafone VF845 which is also called Huawei VF845 and it is also called "Joy" in some countries.
The relationship between Huawei and Vodafone is that, Vodafone UK contracted Huawei to manufacture the phone model specifically for them and hence the vodafone logo.
Vodafone UK has significant shareholding with Safaricom(K) and therefore Safaricom can sell the phone in Kenya using the same brand name.
At least that is what i think.
Zakmwash, 30 Dec 2010Hi guys, i just wanted to know the connection between huawei and vodafone because in kenya thi... moreHi Zakmwash, I bought the Vodafone 845 from Safaricom in Nairobi, unlocked it ($19.95) and rooted it. The Safaricom version does NOT include the Market app which opens the doors up to all of the cool Android apps, thus the need to root it and install custom ROM. (Not hard at all)I had a completely open phone with Mr Edition Rom running 30 min after I got the unlock code. It is a very good phone with great capabilities. Just for the record, the reason for unlocking and custom ROM is that I travel between Kenya and the U.S.A. regularly and needed the ability to use it here in the U.S. too.
i am slowly getting used to this phone..its a good play toy for me and saved me buying a more expensive phone..i use it for 2 degrees and vodafone sim cards..i might sell it once the new years is past as i have gone back to the physical keyboard..i still cant get used to typing on a screen..
Hi guys, i just wanted to know the connection between huawei and vodafone because in kenya this phone is called "Huawei VF845" yet it has a vodafone logo?
