Re: Cap plans or HSPA plans ? Help

You could look at it this way: The mobile plans are for people who mainly want a phone but may use a bit of data on the side. The HSPA plans are for those who mainly want data, although some of those come with a phone plan on the side. :D If 100MB is all you need the mobile plans will suit you well....

Re: Mobile Per Min Plans - Included Calls in Access

Does this indicate that there is a $5 call credit per month, ie, if one spent $20 that month on call charges, only $15 is payable? In a sense. You could say that it would be $15 of call charges + the $5 access charge making a total of $20. Or you could say that you're paying $20 for $20 worth of ca...

Re: Exetel MoIP

Similar results here (6121c). Installation and setup all went well, but then in the call screen, Options -> Search contact does nothing. Options -> Main menu does nothing. Entering a number does work - it calls out and the phone at the other end rings - but on pickup it's just silence at both ends. ...

Re: Questions regarding WM A plan

AFAIK the WM plans include outbound GSM phone service - that's what makes them different to the WI plans. It looks like the order form is just wrong here. If you're concerned about it email residentialsales and get confirmation in writing.

Re: 3102 issues

3. I am using direct IP address 58.96.1.2 for the proxy settings. And I can ping this IP address without problem. You can, but the evidence suggests that the 3102 can't (presumably because it fails the first time it tries, with the rest of the network unavailable). Have you tried using sip1.exetel....

Re: International Rates billed per Min or Sec for mobile?

And prices are per-minute, of course. The page does seem to be missing that vital bit of information though. Perhaps it should say (as the VoIP international page does): "All rates are shown as price per minute but are billed per second."

Re: Open 824RL VoIP connection

It sounds like your modem is faulty - assuming your handset is connected directly to the Phone 1 socket on the back and it has a VoIP registration; then there should be a fairly distinct loud dial tone. The Line 1 light should also come on when you pick up the phone. Right. In fact, even with the l...

Re: Google Public DNS

Interesting. I've used OpenDNS and Level3's public dns in the past when I had problems with Exetel's Akamai servers, but Google's using anycast so these should give better latency. (And they do, a bit - 150ms here, so still not ideal. Singtel Singapore?) What's Exetel's policy / preference on this? ...

Re: Open 824RL VoIP connection

There's one little setup problem that can cause exactly those symptoms: if you set up line 1 to connect to Exetel but plug your phone into line 2 (or vice versa). Sounds silly but it's easy to do (er, not that I'd ever admit to doing it... no, never! ;))

Re: ABC iView unmetered and fast this evening

Hi Dazzled,

rtmpdump download is back on its official European site - I compiled v1.9 from source. Getting lots of disconnects with that and the latest bash script but it does resume and works eventually.

Re: ABC iView unmetered and fast this evening

Just to throw in another option, have you seen the iView downloader scripts that some of the Whirlpool regulars are developing? They're a bit hit-and-miss because of frequent changes to the faux-encryption used - attempts by the broadcasters to prevent naughty people downloading iView shows overnigh...

Re: what is the data type

You can use data on the mobile plans in exactly the same way as the HSPA plans. Coverage and speeds will be different (can be better or worse) as the mobile plans use Vodafone (possibly changing in the near future??) while HSPA is on Optus. Hardware requirements are all the same, unless you have a d...

Re: Optus blocks Android App Store -- Does Exetel's HSPA?

Just based on reading the article, it appears to be a limitation introduced in the Optus firmware. If so, to avoid the problem you could either choose not to buy your phone from Optus or (since Android is open-source) you should always be free to install your own clean version of the operating system.

No problems here Dazzled, using Firefox on Linux (currently Ubuntu and SUSE) for Commbank, Greater and HSBC.
