Porting foreign mobile numbers to a UK account by Maurice
Anyone know if it's possible to port a mobile number to a UK provider account from a foreign provider? (Or is it limited to UK--UK?) (Granddaughter from Singapore starting at UK university next month.) -- /\/\aurice (Replace "nomail.afraid" by "bcs" to reply by email)

Vodafone tethering by Dex
Just bought a Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 and for being a new customer they're giving me 50GB of data. Is tethering allowed? Sales person at the shop said I could tether but I received a text saying I've reached my monthly limit for using the internet abroad! Haven't left my town since buying it, let alone the country. Is it their way of saying not to tether?

A question (OT because it's France) about Orange.fr pay as you go by [email protected]
Can anyone suggest where I can find what UK mobile provider accounts will give me access to the Orange France WiFi network? I was recently in France and in one place in particular the Orange WiFi hotspot signal was very good. It's a place I will be returning to so it would be good if I could use it. When I browsed through what it offered there was quite a long list of providers (i.e. non...

Can I get a non-expiring PAYG account? by liz
I have got my mum a super simple phone to take with her when she goes out for use in an emergency. On someone's recommendation, I was going to put a GiffGaff PAYG SIM in the phone but a prepayment expires in a month. I don't expect her to make a call more than once every month or two. Which alternative plans should I consider using?

Sainsbury offer by Woody[_4_]
For anyone interested Sainsburys are doing a phone charges offer that is probably as good as it gets. If you are a PAYG customer (8p/m calls, 4p texts and 5p/MB data) you can use your phone in 30 countries across Europe for the same prices and no charges to receive. There is no need to convert credit to an add-on like 3 and no 30 day expiry, just use it. Someone trying to beat 3 at their...

Disappointed with Three - can't transfer from 3Pay to PAYG by David Rance[_3_]
I've noticed that Three gets mostly good reviews. I've been on 3Pay ever since I acquired a dongle for mobile Internet some five years ago. Actually I may have been originally on an earlier tariff still and was automatically transferred to 3Pay when that came in. I've noticed that Three now operate a newer tariff called Pay As You Go on Three which, for my purposes would be much cheaper...

Very impressed with Motorola Support by Roy Brown
My wife's Moto G 2nd Gen shut down for no obvious reason. I could reboot it, but then it would only run for 30 seconds, shutting down again in a shower of 'Unfortunately, xxx has stopped running' messages. Tried the long reboot, the super long reboot, the reboot holding two buttons at once.... nothing improved it. Even went for the cache clear, but I could not get past the 'Android in

Self-destroying text msg? by Maurice
This morning I received a text msg on my Samsung Galaxy 3 Mini, from my niece, thanking me for a birthday gift. As I had lost her mobile number I asked the phone to add the number into Contacts. The next thing I knew was that the text msg had completely disappeared - no trace even in the call log - nor in Contacts. Could this have been a so-called self-destroying message?

Orange - cheaper to text from abroad? by David Rance[_3_]
I've just been looking at my latest monthly invoice from Orange and notice that text messages that I've sent while in the UK are billed at 12.5p., whereas when I text from France they are billed at 4.4p. I'm still on the Orange EQ Virgin tariff which I've had for thirteen years. Have Orange/EE lost track of it, I wonder? David --

Transfer number by Malcolm Loades[_3_]
I've tried asking Three this question but have got nowhere. The Indian call centre will not stop trying to upgrade the 'phone with a new contract and simply avoid answering. I then asked by e-mail but the automated acknowledgement says it will take 5 days to answer! I simply want to know if I can transfer an existing Three number on a contract which has expired (I can give one month's...

EE calls over wifi by Roland Perry
After grappling with their online help, for far too long, I think I may have extracted a deal at 12.99 a month, one month cancellation, no handset, to be given the extraordinary privilege to use the SIM for this in an already-owned unlocked iPhone 5s. I'll report back what happens after the SIM has arrived. I note they didn't appear to have an option to upgrade a SIM I already have, but as...

3 PAYG SIM on data by chris

E-mail on iPhone5 ios8 by Woody[_4_]
My daughter has upgraded to iPhone6 so has given me her old 5. I have gone through the SettingsMail route and set up a POP3 mail account, however when I launch the Mail app it offers me to start up a new account and the account details I have already entered are nowhere to be found. Anyone give me guidance?

Nokia 820 by Scott[_3_]
Hi Folks. I'm looking for ideas. My Nokia 820 - just over two years old - seems to be on its way out. The battery is draining very fast: 70% to flat through the night when it was on stand-by. I have tried (1) new battery, (2) factory reset, (3) changing to battery saver mode, (4) diagnostic test at authorised Nokia repairer. If I buy a new phone, is this likely to lead to improvement or is...

Expired Voda PAYG SIM cards.. by tony sayer
We've just found an old phone we thought was lost . However the SIM card hasn't been used for ages and I've been told that the SIM card and number are no longer usable, but it did let us top it up online!. However the service rep told me that if I go to a Vodafone store they might be able to help? Seems that they have better access to their companies systems?. All seems rather bizarre anyone...

Virgin wifi on EE iPhone by Roland Perry
When I tried setting up the Virgin "Wifi buddy" on an iPhone with an EE SIM in it, I got an error that I could only do this on a phone with a Virgon SIM. That's despite having a Virgin login as a result of several other Virgin accounts - and never having had an issue with multiple such wifi carriers on an Android phone. Meanwhile, the similar Sky wifi login (again as a result of having...
