Re: some questions please

I use the pre-installed "Optus Internet" APN setting with no issue. In Android's APN list, the actual APN value is below the APN name. Here's mine: Optus Internet internet If it's "internet", "Internet" or "INTERNET" then you should be good to go. Yes, I tried all three. :) thank you. my brain is b...

Re: some questions please

You should be able to create a new connection profile. I did this, calling it Exetel, and set the APN to yesINTERNET. You may need to be unlocked to do this. You need to be careful on the CAP plans because only a few APNs are allowed (https://forum.exetel.com.au/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=37682&start=0) ...

Re: some questions please

My solution is: 1. Configure apps that are likely to chew large amounts of data to only operate on Wifi, not 3G, ie google listen 1a. Turn off data access if you are getting too close to the CAP. 2. Monitor usage using some apps. 2a. I use Netcounter to alert me to excessive mobile data usage for d...

Re: MOIP data usage

Total packet size (bits) = (28 bytes) * (8 bits per byte) = 224 bits Bandwidth per call = voice packet size (224 bits) * 50 pps = 11.2 kbps or around 40 MB per hour. By the same reasoning, G.711 produces 67.6 kbps Increasing the packet time reduces the header proportion, for a kbps improvement when...

Re: loosing the plot.......what to do

I can't speak officially of course, but I suspect After Jan31, OCV options will disappear. However, the OF and OT plans would most likely still be around in March/April. If I were you, I would base my decisions around the value of the OF* plans. ok that is logical will look into that many thanks :)
