I tried to reset the phone to factory settings, and then power off, power on, then enter PIN, then? it should work, no? Why does it say's "the page cannot be displayed"? why isn't working?:O

Check that the following setting is ticked:

Settings->Wireless & networks->Mobile networks->Data enabled

Also verify that the access point name settings are correct and the correct access point is chosen. You should be able to find the details of what it should be on the Vodafone website. The settings are at:

Settings->Wireless & networks->Mobile networks->Access Point Names
