Retrieve Number by jTemplar
I have been using the same mobile number for the last 18 years. The number was first issued by Vodafone but has been ported a couple of times used most recently with KontaKt Mobile, an MVNO using the Vodafone network. As you may know KontaKt ceased trading last month and users who wanted to keep their numbers had to ask for a PAC by 15 December 2016. I received no notification about the...

Dialing 111 from abroad by Mark Carver
Recently I've had to dial 111 on someone's advice, to arrange assistance. Is such a feat possible from abroad ? Googling suggested that +44 300 020 0155 works, but it doesn't anymore, and you get a message (at least dialing it from the UK) to dial 111. Any other possible methods ?

Dual SIM problem with Moto G (2nd generation) in UK by Roger Mills[_2_]
I have had a '3' PAYG SIM in one slot of my Moto G2 from the outset and various other SIMS in the other slot from time to time. Hitherto, I have had "Preferred SIM for mobile data" set to '3'. I have just acquired a PlusNet SIM which uses the EE network and have signed up for a monthly deal with inclusive minutes, texts and data - so now need to use that as the preferred SIM for mobile...

Whatsapp message thread disappeared! by Maurice
The SO, whilst scanning back through her 'family' WhatsApp thread, somehow caused a menu to appear, of which she hit the wrong option, whereupon the whole thread disappeared (though the photo's are still there in Photos/WhatsApp). This was on a Moto G4 Plus 16GB (Android 6.0.1) I have never seen such a menu. Anyone know how to get it to appear? (Or how to restore the thread)

Can't seem to access mobile data by Murmansk[_2_]
A friend has a Samsung Galaxy A3 mobile phone with a TalkTalk SIM in it. She can't access the Internet via mobile data, the SIM works OK with my phone so it's something wrong with the phone or its settings. I've looked everywhere I can think of in the settings but no joy: Mobile data is switched on It's not in airplane mode Wi-Fi is off It can make calls

Help decoding phone symbol by Roland Perry
I've got an Aldi "Workzone" phone, and it's been showing an icon that's not in the manual. It looks like the yellow "New Txt" icon, but with a small blue half-moon symbol over the bottom right-hand corner. I've checked all the txt menus and can't see any anomalies, and txts are arriving OK. -- Roland Perry

Cannot register for 112 on Phone Coop phone by Maurice
Trying to send 'register' to 112 failed. (Using Phone Coop SIM) (Failure msg said "Make voice call".) Might this be because Phone Coop isn't geared up for that yet? -- /\/\aurice (Replace "nomail.afraid" by "bcs" to reply by email)

Declaring independence from Samsung by Scott[_3_]
My Samsung S5 mini is still awaiting Android Marshmallow. I am contemplating the idea of rooting the phone and installing generic Android. Having looked at numerous sites, I am still confused about the distinction between 'pure' Android and Cyanogenmod 13. It seems to me that Cyanogenmod just means substituting one person's customisation for another. However, there seems to be very...

iPhone on o2 and problems with data roaming when abroad. by David Wade[_2_]
My wife has an iPhone on o2 and it refused to use data services when roaming. I have a Sony Experia on o2. It roams just fine. I have now fixed my wifes iPhone by setting the APN from idata.o2.co.uk to mobile.o2.co.uk. The help http://service.o2.co.uk/IQ/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE?New,Kb=Companion,question=ref(User):str(Mobile),CASE=19041 says to only use the "idata.o2.co.uk" APN if you are on...

Number re-use by Martin Nicholas[_10_]
How long is a number left dormant after it ceases to be in use? I ask this as I got a data SIM from EE and now the number is being bombarded with texts from an employment agency: Bricklayers required to start on Monday in Basingstoke. Please call Lee at PCR on 01252 XXXXX and rather more worryingly for the security of the financial services industry: Lloyds Bank has noticed your Debit card...

Sim only contracts by Dex
Are SIM only contracts covered by the distance selling regulation? Thinking of taking out a 12 month contract with Three, but the last time I had a contract with them (30 day rolling, over a year ago) the data speeds were awful, sometimes as low as 200kb/s at busy times. Their returns page goes on about returning devices and accessories within 14 days, but nothing about contracts. If there...

Bad mobile signal by Alexmgero
Hi everyone! This is almost my first experience of writing on forums, so probably I will ask a question that was already asked, maybe, hundred times. My situation is the following: I ‘ve got a cabin out of the sity, but mobile coverage there is really poor. I can make calls, but very often we can’t hear each other. I would like to have at least mobile Internet. So I would like to know if there is...

Totally free international calls by DrTeeth
Yep, that is right. Virgin mobile has a tariff that includes all 08 numbers, like 0844, 8071 etc. If you use a service that requires you to dial an 0844 (for example) before you dial your international number, the whole deal is included in the 08 part of your tariff. It is only £3 extra to get all 08 numbers included for 1,000 mins per month. Here's the proof https://db.tt/QhxpcuUN. Sorry if you...

Looking for (semi) genuine battery for Motorola G XT1068 by Harold Finch[_2_]
My wife and I both have twin SIM Moto G's XT1068. After about two years heavy use both batteries are starting to show signs of degrading. Usual symptoms such as quicker to discharge and quicker to charge to an apparent 100% capacity. I've looked at lots of replacements on Amazon and Ebay but doubt if all of them are genuine Motorola or OEM products. Can anyone suggest a reputable source that...

Samsung S7 or what? by T i m
Hi All, My Samsung S4 is due for upgrade and I'm looking at the S7 (I took the S4 over an S5 at the time because I think it was cheaper and there were things on the S5 that I may not have liked, like non-user replaceable battery or some such) but what would the S7 offer me that I would actually use / need, other than being waterproof for example (assuming it was and because I do go boating now...
