Receiving error "Subscribe to packet data first"

Greetings!

I am using Nokia 7500 Prism and getting this above said error while accessing GPRS applications like "Yahoo! Go", "Gmail on mobile" etc.
I have GPRS activated on my vodafone connection and have verified that same applications are working on my other handset.
Moreover I got the software updated for my mobile but nothing worked.

Any help??

Regards

Re: Receiving error "Subscribe to packet data first"

This is a simple solution, call your network provider and ask for internet access, somehow or someone canceled your internet on your phone, this is what i get when I try because I asked my provider to black internet access.

cheers

Re: Receiving error "Subscribe to packet data first"

I finally solved my problem not long after that. Sorry for taking sometimes to post it over here.Theres some tips that I like to share.Hopefully these will help.

Switch off your phone for 10 minutes immediately after installation is done. Switch it back on ...and there you GO !
Its just like any installation done on your computer , it need to be restart.

With my upgrade Yahoo GO 3.0 Version , world is in my hand now !

Re: Receiving error "Subscribe to packet data first"

Check your web connection by press/hold down '0' for a few seconds.It will connect you to your own home page.

After installation is done , you should exit the web and turn off the phone for 10 minutes.

p/s
what did you mean by 'to connect ebuddy mobile'?
did u mean to open the application ?

Re: I cannot get access to PREFERRED ACCESS POINT.

In order to get access in Internet through Nokia 3110 Classic handset's built in browser "Yahoo ! Go" I started to put settings in the handset with the help of direction given in the Manual.

 

By following the path : Menu>Settings>Configuration, I opened the 'Preferred Access Point'. The box simply returns information "(empty)" with further instruction to "Back".

 

As per Manual the information would be available :...to view the save access points. Scroll to an access point, and select Options>Details to view the name of the Service Provider, data Bearer, and packet data access point or GSM dial-up Number...  But all these functions on my part cannot be done.

 

May be this is the reason I am not getting support from the Yahoo! Go Browser. I will be much favoured with if any learned person can advice me to get positive result.

 

Basab Roy.
