Re: Optus (CAP35) + HTC Desire - MMS Generic Network Failure

FYI in my case; after several months of bouncing between Exetel/Optus in checking and rechecking the APN settings the foregone conclusion was a handset fault. Similarly I spent an equal amount of time of back'n'forth e-mails with HTC who believed the issue lies at the network provider's end. Given t...

Optus (CAP35) + HTC Desire - MMS Generic Network Failure

Hi guys, I have a HTC Desire (bought from Hong Kong) running Froyo (un-rooted per factory) on the Optus Cap 35 plan. Previously I was with Three and sporadically had an issue sending and receiving MMS, specifically when sending messages I would get a variety of error messages but the main one was "G...

Re: Changing between the new optus cap plans...

I have a similar question I hope someone can answer; I'm an existing customer with a grandfathered Naked DSL plan (Z/21NOTEL) and would like to get one of the new Optus Cap plans. Can I still get the discount on my ADSL bill and retain this plan or will I be forced to change to one of the current Na...

Re: Huawei E169 Connection Issues

Ah, forgot to post the tail on this one. For me I raised a helpdesk call after being unable to get the modem working. Ideally the sim should be tested independently in another hspa modem or enable device (smartphone) to see which is at fault but I didn't have access to any that were unlocked and wou...

Huawei E169 Connection Issues

Hi folks, I'm guessing this is a physical fault but thought I'd ask; I have a Huawei E169 USB modem that has been working fine for the last 10 months or so. In the last 2 weeks the device seemed to work sporadically but now doesn't seem to come up at all. In the Windows XP machine I have the removab...

Re: ADSL2 Unlimited Plans (For Exetel Users Only)

Forgive me if I repeat anyone's sentiment as I've only lazily skipped over admin's replies and stand-out posts. - There was an AUP within generous bounds to not spoil the business model. Cheers that just defeats the purpose of an "unlimited" plan. if it's not actually unlimited than don't call it "...

Re: ADSL2 Unlimited Plans (For Exetel Users Only)

Forgive me if I repeat anyone's sentiment as I've only lazily skipped over admin's replies and stand-out posts. As a current 'loyal' naked-DSL user I'm very happy with my plan; but.... If an unlimited naked plan was offered for what is currently $10 more p.m than my current I'd be elated, if; - Ther...

Vic - ADSL2 No connection

EDIT: That'd have to be the typical - I wait 45 mins, post, then 3 mins after that my connection comes back up again! Admins: Feel free to delete this thread as there's no problem at present. Hi folks, After a bit of help - was happily connected and surfing up to about 45 minutes ago and then with n...

Re: Peak/Off-peak Shaping exceeding 2GB & mixed messages

Cool, thanks for the clarification. Ultimately it would be better in my mind for the throttle to kick in faster i.e. be mindful of all traffic that contributes to usage irrespective or internal or otherwise but i'm sure, as you eluded, this is not possible / desirable due to how the network's been d...

Re: Peak/Off-peak Shaping exceeding 2GB & mixed messages

Thanks for the quick reply, just a few more then while I have you :-) 1. To this moment my off-peak via online account states I'm 55,026MB in i.e. 1.026GB over my 54GB limit, not >2GB. How do I know which is correct? The usage meter is more correct, though you should check its timestamp to see when ...

Peak/Off-peak Shaping exceeding 2GB & mixed messages

Hi folks, Overall I get what the process is trying to do but I just wanted to feedback what I found to be a somewhat confusing process; Account details: Naked-DSL NonphoneA Plan - 18GB Peak / 54GB Off-Peak Throttle settings: Peak - go nuts & pay more. Off-peak: Throttle Peak definition: 2am - 2pm In...

Re: Possible Change To Off Peak Period

I'm more than happy the way it is, also happy for it to change to the 2am-2pm proposal.

I wouldn't be happy with the 10pm-10am suggestion.

Re: Scheduled SMS send from web failed - NYE

But if the service is there, it needs to be reliable. I vaguely recall having a similar problem far enough ago that I can't recall the details, however I didn't chase it up. Yeah that's pretty much where I was coming from. I know around NYE naturally mobile networks get a massive spike in traffic w...
