What's With V-mobile GPRS, Yahoo Mail and Hotmail?

I use Vmobile. Though I browse other sites, I can't access my e-mails via Vmobile as Yahoo & MSN don't open. But they do on Glo. Why?

Not to offend you guys. I am new to the site. Discovered it while trying to find out how to use my Nokia 6230i to browse on my V-mobile line. Can anyone please guide me on the step to take. Thanks

Its a surprise that u guys r enjoying VMOBILE GPRS. It sounds quite strange to me. My brother in Lagos says he can't get the service, even with his state-of-d-art Nokia N92 phone, proper settings and all. He recieves a message that the GPRS service isn't available. Here in Calabar, I have the settings on my N6630 yet, I can't use the service. This posting is done with MTN and its so much crab. Who can help pls?

Vmobile hasn't blocked the yahoo wapsite cos I've tried with my phone and it's working fine..

Could be a temporary prob with Vmobile config and some handset models.

Aparently they are trying to force people to use their own e-mail service instead of the free Yahoo Mail or Hotmail; a misguided attempt to make some extra revenue. Obviously, Vmobile Nigeria is not as customer-friendly as we thought (see also this survey).

Once they discover that subscribers are bypassing their filters by using the regional yahoo-mail/hotmail domains, they will block those ones too. Other names for this phenomenom: (1) slapping your customers (2) Shooting yourself in the foot.

Exactly... I've came accross such a problem before, I was not abble to access my yahoo account via WAP

But later got the solution... try using a regional domain address instead the commercial... hope you've got me... dont use http://wap.yahoo.com but try http://wap.yahoo.co.uk, http://wap.yahoo.co.in, http://wap.yahoo.co.jp or any other....

Wish you best surfing via Wap
