Re: Virgin Prepaid Mobile Broadband starter kit and Exetel SIM

It just works in most non-Windows systems. With Windows drivers (as supplied in the modem) it usually works if you start a new profile rather than alter one. Ahh yes, thanks, I should have said am trying to get it running using WIndows (Vista). My other friend who I talked into this setup has Mac s...

Re: Virgin Prepaid Mobile Broadband starter kit and Exetel SIM

Have entered APN, username, password in the Virgin modem utility, however, a popup that says "Unlock the data card" and "Please enter unlock code". I cancel the popup and try to connect to exetel anyhow but am told (in bad English) "you can't connect before register an available network" CoreyPlover...

In my case I know definitely didn't ring because the other person was in the room with me.

Re: HSPA VoIP Performance

I can't even make calls to an actual full Optus mobile user! No ringing tone whatsoever. Exetel said they would call Optus about it but I never heard back from Exetel (probably because Exetel never heard back from Optus). Another Exetel user JasonM kindly tested this number with his own HSPA service...

Re: HSPA VoIP Performance

seem to be saying that he has an Exetel HSPA service but that he doesn't have an Exetel VOIP service (rather, he uses p****tel). He said he is using p****tel for VOIP via his exetel HSPA sim. Unless he has another SIP server (unlikely) it means he is using exetel SIP server (but I will confirm with...

Re: HSPA VoIP Performance

Yeah, nice to be able to use the native client. Not that I have(?) one on my Nokia 6120 classic. I was selling the concept to a mail-list of friends then got an email reply saying the same as you: >> I have the same Exetel HSPA account. My Nokia E71 has a VoIP client >> built in. I use it with a p*...

Re: HSPA VoIP on Nokia E75

I find that it doesn’t quite get to the point where my phone actually calls the number. Same happens to me now with Nimbuzz. I don't have this problem with Fring. Fixed it. Needed to remove the +61 prefix on the outgoing call. Today was not working. Just said "Setting up call to 02912345678"... unt...

I looked up fring on exetel wiki pages and used those settings for nimbuzz. Didn't touch the proxy settings (maybe I set them last month for fring, I can't recall).

Re: HSPA VoIP on Nokia E75

Fixed it. I found the lag (delay) using Nimbuzz to be less than when using Fring - you might like to post your experience once you've tested Nimbuzz a bit. I did post, but as an "edit" rather than a repost. I don't spoze an "edit" notifies those who are subbed to this thread. So far so good. I will...

Re: HSPA VoIP Performance

Vphone will be my next stop if the native sip voip app doesn’t work. Huh? I thought we had to use fring if we wanted VOIP+SIP on mobile phone using an exetel HSPA plan. The Vphone site was not clear on this. But it did point me to another interesting site that give you *free* two minute phone calls...

Re: HSPA VoIP Performance

thanks for the response. I have the sip voip app installed and settings added. I havent checked to see if I have the latest firmware though. The other problem that developed (which forced me to delete the settings ) was that my phone then started freezing and acting erratically. Mark I bought nokia...
