i confirm that the speed was very fast.

just curious - what were the APN settings they told you to use?

how did you use your TP to reach the internet - tethered USB or tethered WiFi? i could not get tethered WiFi to work.

Yeah, Lacul Balea is beautiful and the Transfagarasan road is incredible.

See here.
Note that there is a difference in the settings for prepaid and for contract subscribers. Contract subscribers use live.vodafone.com instead of live.pre.vodafone.com.

I actually tethered the phone's 3G connection over bluetooth mainly. I never use WiFi, it's too power hungry.
