Re: HSPA WM-A mobile voicemail expensive!

Personally I haven't seen it. In early testing I thought I was getting that effect but then after getting some dire results with all available options (Fring / Nimbuzz / Nokia+Voip settings+g.729 / Uniphone g.711) I came to the conclusion that for me, voice quality was only really dependent on the c...

Re: HSPA WM-A mobile voicemail expensive!

That's an unusual result. Did you install the Nokia VOIP Settings Tool and set G729 as preferred codec?

Re: HSPA WM-A mobile voicemail expensive!

Have you tried using the E71's native VoIP client instead of Fring? By most accounts it should give you better quality (less lag) as well as DTMF.

Re: Ever heard of the Huawei E5830?

You can do the same with a wifi-enabled smartphone and Joikuspot, but the price of that looks good, in comparison. I wonder how much it will cost when it arrives here...

(Also a quick Google seems to suggest it's HSPA 2100MHz only, which would be a bit of a disadvantage).

Re: iPhone Tethering with iPhone OS 3.1

Apple sold you a phone that doesn't work on standard networks. Instead, the network operator is required to make special arrangements for it - unique to this one device. By all means request that Exetel makes those arrangements for you - hopefully in time they'll succeed in sorting it out with Optus...

Take it up with Apple. They're the ones who've sold you crippleware.

Re: Can't acess, need help please.

No WAN connection then. Try to browse on the phone first, to eliminate any issues with the connection to computer. IDK about WM6 settings but in general the only thing that really matters is the APN (exetel1).

Re: Can't acess, need help please.

Resolver issue perhaps? (like the thread above). Can you ping 220.233.0.3 and 220.233.0.4? If so, set those as your resolvers, somewhere under network settings.

If you just want a data connection and can live with dialup speed for a while, try to lock your connections to 2G / GPRS only.

Re: New customer info

900/2100 3G phones are also ideal for data use on the growing Vodafone HSPA network if the Optus plans don't suit you. (But if this is the case, get in quick because Exetel's Vodafone plans won't be available for much longer).

Re: Internet drops out but still connected?

Could be a local tower problem but I think the 619 error usually indicates a misconfiguration. Have you checked the settings after this happens, and before you reboot? Did you create a new connection with the exetel1 AP or edit the existing connection?

Re: DynalinkRTA1046VW

Anything special about the room that could provide shielding or interference? (large metal objects, microwave ovens etc.) If not it could just be a hardware problem with the router itself - perhaps try adjusting the antenna in case there's a loose connection there. (Should this thread be in a differ...

Re: Using data for the first time

You need to create an access point with the APN (Access Point Name) set to vfinternet.au, and make sure your web browser is set to use that access point (or "Always Ask" is a safe bet).
