Tree into two won't go? by [email protected]
It seems Hutchinson Whampoa (aka 3 in the UK) is seeking to buy O2. Unlikely to get past the competition commission, unlike BT's attempt to repurchase O2, but the message is that O2 is for sale.

Samsung Galaxy 3 Mini: Mystery icon in top panel by Maurice
At the top left-hand end of the status bar there is what looks like a tall thin loudspeaker (with a single knob at the base) with a large green arrow pointing upwards on the right-hand edge. Does not appear in the list of symbols in the user manual. Anyone know what it's trying to say, please?! -- /\/\aurice

Three UK mobile internet on phones Reading area. USELESS. by Brian Gregory
Is anyone else finding that internet connectivity from mobile phones in the Reading area is intermittent, sometimes absent for many hours at a time?? I'm talking about internet access from mobile phones using the three.co.uk APN. Internet access from dongles using the 3Internet APN seems to be fine. --

O2 possibly to merge with Three by Chris Blunt[_2_]
It looks like O2 might be about to become part of the Three network, so there could be some big changes happening soon as far as UK networks are concerned. http://www.bbc.com/news/business-30946005 Chris

Call logs on Android 4.1.1 by Murmansk[_2_]
A colleague of mine showed me her Huawai smartphone that runs Android 4.1.1 - we were looking for the list of missed calls, dialled calls etc and I couldn't find it. I'm used to a Samsung Galaxy S4 but presumably that is not pure Android but has extra bits. Does basic Android not give you info on missed calls etc?

Unlock Motorola V600? by J B
Just been given a Motorola V600 which is locked by AT&T in the usa. (sister in law's old phone) Is there a 'remote' site that will give me the 'subsidy code' that it asks for when I put my Orange sim into it? I don't have a data cable. --

Answerphone App. by Martin Nicholas[_9_]
Sort of apropos to "Selective Forwarding" thread I've looked for a local (on the phone) answerphone which can give number specific messages such as: "Hello number withheld caller. You'll never get an answer from this phone so please leave a massage after the tone..." and then record the result. The blocked numbers list will bump callers over to the network answerphone, but that's not quite...

Best phablet that can be rooted and get LTE on O2? by Philip[_2_]
I love my Sony Xperia Z Ultra when I'm using it, but it's just a little bit too big for comfortable carrying (in my pocket or in the car), so I'm looking for something that's physically a little bit smaller. I'd also like better speakers (I use my Ultra on speakerphone a lot and it's not the loudest or clearest of phones). My criteria a 1) Large screen (say 5.5 inches plus), but...

New phones known to get Lollipop? by chris
I'm in the market for a new mobile on PAYG so looking at £100-150 outlay. Given that Google has admitted they aren't supporting anything older than Kitkat what's the collective knowledge on which phones either come with Lollipop or are known to be able to upgrade to it? Top of my list currently is the Moto G (either 4G or 2nd gen). Are there any other phones that are Lollipopable that I...

Electricity tanks by Optimist
I'm sure I'm not alone in finding my phone, charged up during the night, beeps me in the middle of the day demanding to be recharged. This is such a PITA that I tend to keep it switched off and only switch it back on to make calls, even though I replaced the battery recently. Are there phones on the market with a higher capacity battery, even if the phone is fatter? Many thanks.

Do I believe the list of available networks ? by Andrew Benham
The other day I checked the list of available networks on my phone (by going to Manual selection rather than Automatic). It showed (and indeed still does): O2 3G Vodafone 2G/3G T-Mobile 2G/3G 3 3G Which I took to mean that my mother's Nokia 1101 (2G phone) wouldn't work with a giffgaff (MVNO on O2) SIM in it. When I tried, the

Looking for spares for old ZTE Blade / Orange San Francisco by Harold Finch[_2_]
I foolishly tried to use a nano SIM in an adapter on my old standby Orange San Francisco. As a result I damaged a couple of the copper contacts in the SIM tray assembly. Tried bending them back into shape but of course one has now broken off. Does anyone on here know of a likely source of spares for such an old model? AliExpress in China has the tray assembly but also has a very bad...

Samsung Galaxy III Mini will not stay powered off! by Maurice
If I hold the Power button down, then hit "Power Off" and 'OK' in the resultant menu, it does appear to power off. But a few seconds later it comes back on again! :-( Anyone know how to persuade it to STAY powered off, please? Many thanks... -- /\/\aurice (Retired in Surrey, UK) Registered Linux User #487649
