Has GiffGaff been hacked by Woody[_4_]
I have received a mail from GG this morning to say that my change to my recurring Goodybag purchase has be enacted - set to not recur - at 02:21 this morning. Except that at that time I was asleep in bed. To me this says either an error on their behalf or they have been hacked as (a) I haven't made any change in nearly six months and (b) only ever connect via my line connected desktop.

Blackberry Storm don't work with O2 SIM card?? by phuile
I live in Canada. Last year, I brought my Blackberry 8830 World Edition when visitng the UK - I bought a SIM from O2 and stick it in the 8830 and it worked fine. This year, I got the Blackberry Storm and I bought a SIM again from O2 but it doesn't work. The Storm has more network support than the 8830, so i am very puzzled. Can someone tell me what I need to do to make it work? BTW, I was told...

Hi all, My Samsung Ace 2 has suddenly popped it's clogs. All working fine yesterday, put it in to charge over-night (as per usual) and this morning - nothing.

Finding out what network a handset is locked to? by [email protected]
I'd like to resuscitate a couple of older but perfectly serviceable basic Nokia handsets for use by some friends who are visiting the UK, the problem is they are network locked. No problem, I'll get them unlocked... the problem is, in order to obtain an unlocking code, I need to know which network they are locked to, and I don't have a clue (they were't originally mine). Is there any smarter...

Three not able to receive SMSes from some countries? by CK
I'm a recently ported customer from EE to Three (having been with EE since early Orange days) and recently noticed that I don't seem to be able to receive text messages from some countries (such as South Africa). After some very frustrating hours on the phone with their customer services centre, the main message I have got from them now is "sorry, we don't have agreements with providers in those...

SIM expiry if never activated by Windmill[_3_]
Does a SIM eventually expire if (a) never plugged in, or (b) plugged in but never activated (by perhaps the first topup) ? I suppose it might depend on the network. Can anyone recommend a good on-line primer which covers all the minor technical details of mobile phone use? I wasn't planning on learning how to build and program a mobile phone, just how to use one more intelligently. I'm still...

Trip to Portugal - Data SIM? by CD[_2_]
Off to Portugal for a week on Monday & am after a SIM, mainly for Data, Google maps when out & about etc. Not too fussed on calls. I've used 3 feel at home in other countries, but Portugal isn't one. I can't see me using more than a couple of GB in the week. I was looking at the cheapest O2 contract for 9 for 30 days & then using the O2 travel service, but reading the small print their version...

SPV-E200 SIM Unlock by i-ball
How can I unlock the SPV-E200 so I can use other SIM other than going to Orange. I recently went for an upgrade and went for this phone so it will be a long while before I can get it unlock from Orange. Thanks for any replay.

Vodafone blocking VOIP by Peter[_2_]
The standard UDP port 5060 is totally blocked. Another similar port # which the SIP provider gave me almost works but the voice is so broken up it is useless. I can't tell whether this is due to the link too slow / not the right codec / Voda detecting VOIP and buggering it up. This is on HSPA, 3mbits/sec. It worked fine Dec 2013...

4 row/4 column DTMF chip. by Ian Field
While searching for a HM9187 DTMF chip datasheet, I found an American trade department document outlining various chips that are banned from import into the US. DTMF chips of this type have not been listed in mainstream catalogues for years. So what's the big deal with DTMF chips that can do all 16 buttons?! Thanks.

No more Skype on my S2 Skypephone! by Roger Mills[_2_]
I bought an S2 Skypephone on '3' some years ago, with a promise of 'free Skype for life'. But, towards the end of September, I received a text from '3' saying that Skype would no longer be supported as of 1st October. Now, if I try to use it for Skype it says "Sorry, we can't connect you right now. Please try later." It's no big deal as far as I'm concerned - I hardly ever used it for...

How to ID Genuine Samsung S3 battery? by Jake[_2_]
I put a bid in on an auction style listing that advertised a genuine Samsung S3 battery. However the final end price of the auction was much lower than expected, at a little less than 1/2 my final bid amount, and at around the same price that 'compatible' batteries are finishing at. The battery looks exactly the same as the original but I am suspicious nonetheless based on the final bid...
