Flashed it with an Alcatel 4018A (pop D1) after learning that they are of the same hardware - what could have caused this issue exactly. It will only connect on Edge [E] now :(

Hey Kulani, This proves to be a baseband version issue. Because different regions uses different bands,  ROMs are molded with the destination region in mind. It must then be that you have flashed a ROM that has a differing baseband that does note support your regions' band. A quick fix would be to find a friend locally with a VF685 running the original stock ROM/firmware and take a backup and install in the place of the currently installed firmware. In short, what is needed is a stock ROM for/from your region. Not very easy task normally.

If you can obtain and flash the original stock ROM/firmware, the phone should come with 3G and a working earpiece (with no need for hand free). It is just that taking a backup from another VF685 may involve installing a Custom Recovery onto it first and the owner may be reluctant.

You need to find a friend who owns the same Vodafone model - then use a PC software called 'MTK Droid Tools' to take it backup.
