I have had a couple of people emailing me asking how to activate the internet connection on the iPhone on Vodacom.
Vodacom uses a specific APN (Access Name Point) for the iPhones, which come pre-configured on the iPhone. The APN they use is “iPhone.Vodacom.ZA“. If you have a standard Vodacom Contract, and recently bought an iPhone, or have recentley had an upgrade, you will need to activate this APN.
There are 2 ways of doing this. You can can call the Vodacom Data Service Helpdesk on 082 155 (Free call from your phone), or log onto Vodacom4me.co.za. On the Vodacom4me website, log in, and go to My Account-> Services -> Modify Services and select the iPhone APN.
To check what APN is currentley set on your iPhone, go to Settings -> General -> Network -> Cellular Data Network, and you should have iphone.vodacom.za set under your Cellular Data APN.
