Now comes the true test on whether I can remotely (via your 3G network) connect from the Oricam android phone app back to the Orion Security camera at home.
Will let you know how that goes when I get home later today.

thank you for the confirmation. however i assume you have done the necessary port forwarding for your security camera? since you have security camera, personally recommend you having static IP (unless your current IP never changed)

No this doesn't need port forwarding as the application according to suppliers Oron uses dynamic ports.
They also insist that there is no special config required on the router for the app to coonect.
Has me confused and I don't want to pay extra each month for a dedicated IP address with Vodafone.

Is the resolution Internet Services DDNS and setting up the remote domain server for this application?

Problem solved...the APN settings needed to be configured on the Mobile device - Samsung S3 in our case.
The need for all the changes and upgrades on the routers was NOT required.
The solution to accessing our home based WIFI Security camera from the remote APP on the phone was just defining the correct APN settings.
This was picked up as being the issue and resolved bu the helpful staff at Vodafone Sylvia Park.

Good to hear that's sorted. Very rare to have an issue updating the firmware on the HG659 but it can happen as with any firmware upgrade. The APN settings in the phone will need to be there for the phone to access the internet using the sim card, it's the sort of thing that you only need to set up once and it will keep working.
You may want to grab our smartphone app called My Vodafone so you can keep track of your data usage on the phone. Details on our site here - http://www.vodafone.co.nz/using-myvodafone/
