Re: Sierra 8775 in Lenovo X300

(using the mobile broadband connection manager[lenovo) and whilst the modem is being detected and a signal of 72% it still failed to connect. So you have software that detects the built-in modem, the modem is working with the Exetel simcard (since you have a signal) but it's not connecting. What er...

What OS is it? Unless it's Symbian S60 or Windows Mobile I seriously doubt it will worth Exetel's while making an app to support it.

Try Phone Settings -> Applications -> App manager and turn off the certificate check.

Re: Exetel MoIP

(Personally I think the phone is underpowered computational-wise rather than any issue with the MOIP application.) I don't think so - its CPU is identical to the N78's, and it works ok with other VoIP software, given an adequate connection. But the OS is Series 60 3rd Ed. FP1, like the N82 and N95,...

Re: Billed per 10kb block?

Assuming you're correct, a rounding error like that might cost you on average 5kB of data on each connection, so if you're paying 1.5c / MB, I reckon you'll need to make about 133 connections before this costs you a cent. Does it really matter either way? :wink:

Re: Remote Access through E169/Netgear MBR624GU

Dazzled, I agree there are known issues here but IDK that it's so clear cut - it could still be firmware or even driver (linux kernel) related. I just thought of a much better example: I have remote access to my sister's PC, running Ubuntu 9.04 with an E169 with Exetel. Remote ssh login hasn't ever ...

Re: Remote Access through E169/Netgear MBR624GU

I normally work the other way (connecting from the remote 3G system to my ADSL at home) but just for interest, I tried it the other way around. Result: no problem with ping or ssh login via a UMTS-only phone (my E169 isn't available right now). (To clarify: ADSL -> My HSPA IP address -> Nokia N80 us...

GPRS is charged at the same rate as 3G data - 1.5c/MB on WM-A.

Re: LG KU990 setup for Exetel Optus data & mobile services

I've tried to use settings from Optus site sent to the phone but still the data connection mostly fails or very occasionally works for awhile at a snails pace. Another friend's same phone on the vodaphone network works quite acceptably for internet and downloads. Any advice appreciated... I think i...

Re: Mobile HSPA ordering question

What it should say: To be able to make mobile calls and send SMS via the Optus mobile network you must order A PLAN THAT INCLUDES an Exetel mobile telephone service at the time of ordering your HSPA service otherwise the ability to make mobile calls will be blocked [...] ie. You need to order a WM p...

Re: What kind of mobile phone do I need for VOIP?

something that can support a proper SIP app would be a better choice I would think Ideally yes, but in practice it's the connection quality that really seems to determine whether VoIP over HSPA works or not. I've had good results from Fring on some tests and native SIP client completely unusable on...

Re: What kind of mobile phone do I need for VOIP?

Of those, the C903 looks best as it supports HSPA at both 2100 and 900, although again you may not care so much about 900, depending on where you're planning to use the phone. But as Dazzled said, look for whether VoIP software is available for these models too - Fring / Nimbuzz / Uniphone? IDK Sony...

Re: What kind of mobile phone do I need for VOIP?

I'll run down to the local dick smith tomorrow and find out what their cheapest mobile phone that works at that frequency is (hopefully <$200). You also need to really understand the phone specs, because the shop assistants may not. You're looking for 900 and 2100 3G / UMTS (and ideally HSPA). Lots...

Re: voicemail, dtmf tones and codecs

When I first set up VoIP (on Open 824RLW) I also tried forcing G.729 only and found the voicemail menus didn't work, but with 729 preferred and 711 as second priority, no problems (and I guess in any case it's better to be willing to accept as many relevant codecs as possible). But trying it again n...
