I have an iPhone 5 which this is happening to. Luckily this is part of an Apple battery recall programme (https://www.apple.com/uk/support/iphone5-battery/) so it is going in for investigation soon!

Vodafone are (or were earlier this year!) ONLY good for calls!

I left them as their 3G coverage was just appalling - which made using a smartphone somewhat difficult!

When it happened to me I was just about to phone them - and then thought I would try a reboot of the router first so it might reinitialise the ISP connection.

This cleared the issue for me.:D

Almost certainly not!:cry:

iDevices use encrypted memory and most sorts of "full restore" reinitialise the memory access key value - thus effectively securely erasing all previous content!

You have no control over the DNS settings on the HH5 (and quite a number of other makes of ISP-supplied routers) so you cannot set up UnBlockUS globally for all devices at once.

HOWEVER you can set...

For the US it was always a green Visa Waiver Form - combined with a Customs one on the same form - which needed to be completed on the plane. Not been for some time to check this is still the case.

Ok - I had seen a report they were not taking anything - but as the banks take 1-3% anyway a small processing cut seems reasonable.
