taxtwit I'll try not to gloat As it turns out, I haven't been able to explore the new capabilities yet anyway.

North_of_Calgary Me neither. And I've done a bunch of those *#*#CHECKIN#*#* but still nothing. I'm not going to do the manual download/upgrade - I'll wait.

JamesK I haven't received it yet either.

Not sure what you mean. I'm on Virgin Mobile, but all the N1 settings should be independent of any carrier. I'm running stock Android 2.1 btw.

Actually, I wasn't sure if it would work initially. I went into the Call Settings and changed the Voicemail service to Google Voice. I went through some steps and it stopped me short of setting up some other things (since it's only in the U.S. currently). Google voicemail surprisingly worked after that. I don't think it's the full Google Voice thing...just voicemail. I even got a Google voicemail access number.

I tried calling from a landline and leaving a few voicemails on my cell - works very well. I can also check messages on my phone from the Voice app. Perhaps someone else should give it a try. The default greeting is pretty bad, though, so you may want to change that.

jvincent I was thinking the same thing.

PS: love this phone!
Agreed. Some quirks aside, this phone - and Google - is amazing.

Something I just found out: my current plan doesn't have voicemail, but I just enabled Google voicemail - which is a million times better than any other voicemail I've had before. It transcribes and records it for easy viewing/listening online. All for free! Like any other Google service, it is easily customizable.

Ouser Figured it out! Thanks for all the help folks...

Ouser Thank you! I did find that I needed to add the apn settings... I am now online!

My next issue is 'sending' email! In the mail settings I copied all the info from my old Nokia E71, but I still cant connect to the server.

The smtp data that I have is , but different sites suggest turning on or off identification. Neither seems to work. Anyone out there have an N1 on rogers?

Cheers folks!

BGY11 Sounds like an APN configuration issue. I'm not exactly sure how to change the settings as I've never used an Android handset, but here's what I found after a quick Google search:

Name: Rogers
APN: rogers-core-appl1.apn
Proxy: <leave blank>
Port: 80
Username & Password: <leave blank>
Server: <leave blank>

You may have to reboot afterwards, but otherwise it should work.

jvincent Have you checked your APN settings?
