still didn't work, kaka frustrate haha! :/ whenever i tried opening or activating the data connection the sun signal switches itself off, no gprs or 3g icons comes out too, as i suppose there should be an E or an H icon over the signal bar.. the sim card has a menu wherein you can get gprs settings, i tried requesting for the settings but never came, tried the SETTINGS & ACTIVATE to 2300 but the msg i recieved said that my internet settings couldnt be sent to my phone right now..
