I'm up and running, Thanks for the help. 2100mhz band was selected but had to ring exetel to activate service again. 15 ninutes later up came optus network......

I have an C3 HSPA service.

There is an allowance of 100 free calls to landlines in Oz beginning 1 April (great!).

So I have now subscribed to a "HSPA" voip number to use this allowance..... (as both my other broadband accounts apparently do not qualify for it)

This new voip service shows up in my normal ADSL1 web pages as well.

Can you confirm that it will in fact attract the 100 free call allowance?

Regards,

Harry.

Harry I hope you are right, suggesting that HSPA users are eligible for the 100 free voip calls, if true I must have blinked because I didn't notice that announcement, lets hope you are right.
Can someone clarify please :)

Hi Munka

See the first dot point under "HSPA Plan Inclusions", here
http://www.exetel.com.au/residential-hspa-pricing.php
(provided you are on one of the listed plans, of course).

Hi Harry

My HSPA VOIP service also shows up in my ADSL User Facilities. As long as you applied for the VOIP service when logged into your HSPA User Facilities rather than when logged into your ADSL User Facilities you should be right. Hopefully someone from Exetel will give the definitive answer.

Hi Gidget,
That is incredible, I am on the HSPA M1 - HA, and as an inclusion I get 100 free local/national calls.
I finally got voip working on my mobile and signed up for exetel voip, looks like my timing is spot on :D

can the part for mobile phone compatibility be updated?

I am looking at buying the wife a new phone and using the hspa for mobile plan so she can use the voip and in particular the sms part

I think there should be some recommendation of what phones to get and in particular what specs are essential to get good quality voip

I assume the best set up (from reading the forums) is:
*hdspa 900/2100mhz to take advantage of optus 3G
*is it worth getting wi-fi enabled phone so you can use your home adsl connection (with a wi-fi router) as the data component of the phone rather than the 3g rates from the hspa mobile plan?
*I take it the majority of development is being done in Symbian 60 (the colby sms application, exesms, nimbuzz, fring and the exetel voip alternate application) so this should be a major decision factor (I see a lot of requests for winmobile versions of these programs with no delivery!) - or is this not really necessary?
* is having nokia voip setting inbuilt to the phone a big point? http://www.forum.nokia.com/Resources_an ... ices.xhtml lists what phones have inbuilt voip (I take it this means no need for fring / nimbuzz / exetel voip alternate) - and would this mean that there is the possibility of better voip call quality?

If I plug all that info into http://www.gsmarena.com/ and then click on advanced search up the top right, I get 16 results. Nice selection to choose from in terms of price range.

If I then want ones that only have the native nokia voip support (if this is crucial, or really just a waste) - it leaves the E66,E71, N79, N85.

(I know others are using other phones without all these settings and I am by no means saying nokia or nothing, but my point is should there be a recommendation for people who are starting from scratch and what an "ultimate" setup would be based on all the criteria needed to get a good quality voip going?)

Strangely that dot point has vanished, can someone confirm (or otherwise) that HSPA plans are no longer eligible for the 100 free voip calls, all though they were a few days ago.
Clarification please.

It's news to me as well, Munka.

I'll see what I can find out.

Hiya
Can someone please help me. I would like to get the HSPA M1 service originally to use in a E169, will this sim work ok? Then in 2mths time I will probably upgrade to a new iPhone (when they're released if the rumours are true), so I'm wondering can I port my mobile # to this service then at that later date?

Many Thanks

I have used an M1 sim in an E169 with no dramas, so I don't see any problem. The confusing bit seems to be about porting your number, I think you have to do the port initially... if you want to port again later, you'd probably have to get another SIM
