Re: webpage security issues Albany?

This doesn't happen in Perth. So they've been back to Perth and the problem went away? Or did this just start at a time that seemed to correspond with the move to Albany? Security warnings on the ssl certs for bank websites would make me think bad things are happening - man-in-the-middle, dns poiso...

Re: Third party VOIP with Exetel HSPDA on mobile phone?

I have a fancy state of the art LG C3310 mobile phone which I purchased for about $200 about 4 years ago now. I suspect it is GSM (900/1800) and not G3. http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_c3310-1108.php Which is ok as I don't plan to stream youtube videos or anything fancy. I just want to make phone calls....

Re: local call cost number like 1300 possible?

I don't think so. You could suggest it to them tho.

Alternatives to consider: call-connect service (you pay all the caller's costs) or conference calls (caller pays, but has a choice of numbers in the capitals so one may be local).

Re: no nextG Signal

You're missing the essential difference between Telstra's 3G (called nextG) and other providers 3G. Telstra NextG is 850MHz - it's the only 3G in Australia using that frequency (Optus and Vodafone use mainly 2100 with some 900 in country regions). It looks like your phone is only capable of connecti...

Re: no nextG Signal

According to this, the TU500 is UMTS 850 only. If that's the case it won't be able to get 3G at all on Exetel (or Optus, Vodafone or any other supplier using their networks) - you'll be limited to GSM / GPRS.

According to Wikipedia, no.
DTMF tones, Fax transmissions, and high-quality audio cannot be transported reliably with this codec
IIRC I had to enable g.711 to access voicemail - perhaps this is why.

Re: Signal strength.

I believe the N95 is 3G / HSPA 2100 only. If you're not seeing 3G at all, my guess is you're sitting under one of the 900MHz Optus towers.

Re: wireless voip call failed

For either Skype or Voip on HSPA I've certainly found a USB phone works much better than the laptop speaker and mic - those always gave me echoes, to some degree. But even then you're still using a softphone. To connect using an ATA instead you'll need a network connection - either use connection sh...

Re: wireless voip call failed

When you say "wireless" do you mean WiFi or HSPA? Usb dongle suggests HSPA, in which case you're adding another variable (the mobile network) to the mix. On HSPA, make sure you've got a strong signal and good download speed before you attempt to test VoIP.

Re: Settings for internet access - mobile phone

A few other things you might do: try the Exetel sim in another phone (confirm it's activated and works) try a different (non-T$) sim in the phone (confirm the phone is really unlocked) try setting up an internet connection on a computer connected to the phone (you might need some manual setup or pos...

Re: Settings for internet access - mobile phone

Try setting up a new access point (so you don't get all the Telstra defaults) with no proxy, no user / pass, APN exetel1, Authentication CHAP.

(Edit: and hopefully you're in a 2100 MHz region because it won't get you YesG 900 MHz)

Re: HSPA/VOIP/Voicemail

On that page there are two sections headed "Free features" and "Chargeable features"... :wink: Voip voicemail is free, and it's also free to get your messages forwarded to email if you want.

Re: Pro Rata Usage.. Crazy!!

In round numbers there's a quarter of the month left and you have a quarter of your monthly usage available. Seems completely fair to me.

Re: iPhone Tethering with iPhone OS 3.1

Agreed. The compatibility page should be changed to either remove the iPhone or make note of its reduced capabilities [ from 3.1 on] . Edit: Sorry - I misunderstood the previous capabilities of the iPhone. Apparently as jokiin points out all previous versions were also incapable of tethering (unless...
