I own a gta02v5.

I'm on Vodafone too, newer card, Vodafone logo with 'if found call' blah blah.

Never had a problem.

I triboot qtopia (updated against testing), om2008 (updated against testing) 
and FSO milestone 3 (not sure where to update - tried testing :) and all do 
what I'd expect.

I have a pin set.

Sorry, not much I can offer. One thought comes to mind though, out of all the 
providers I've had, Vodafone seems to have the lowest signal strength. I used 
to think it was my ipaq but it is the same with the FR. Maybe 2007 is driving 
it harder? That's about all I can think of.
