Huge price increases on Giffgaff by Clive Page[_4_]
Since nothing's been posted here (unless I missed it) and the details are only provided in a very obscure part of their website, I thought I should point out that Giffgaff are putting up most prices rather a lot on 23rd March. UK calls are going up from 10p/minute to 15p/min. The current reasonable data rate of 20p for up to 20MB/day is being abolished, and replaced by a flat rate of 5p/MB....

Making calls over wi-fi by Scott[_3_]
Friend has an iPhone running on EE with an option to make calls over wi-fi. I'm Vodafone using Samsung Galaxy S5 mini. There seems to be no such option. I have looked at the Vodafone site and am now confused. It seems they offer fhe facility with certain tariffs (with an ambiguous footnote which may or may not mean the facility is limited to business users) and only on a small number of...

Non-replaceable batteries? by AnthonyL
So is Li-Ion technology so good now that the batteries really have a good lifetime or are we simply expected to replace the battery with a new phone every 2-3 yrs? Still running a Win CE 2007 phone which has got a bit outdated. -- AnthonyL

O2 3 Merger by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
After over ten months the CMA has come to the same conclusion that took me less than ten seconds after I first heard about it: - http://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/apr/11/uk-regulator-wants-european-commission-to-block-three-o2-deal no doubt they all got paid , to conclude the bl***ing obvious! Here is hoping it does not go ahead. O2 customer service has gradually improved since...

Another reason NOT to buy a Lunia. by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Back in December 2014, despite owning both Nokia and Skype, Microsoft quietly disabled it on non windows Nokia phones. Now they have unilaterally cut the cloud allocation that came 'included' in the price from 15Gb to 5Gb. Can Microsoft still be trusted? Will I buy a Lumia phone? Does the Pope live in Tehran?

I see there is a new version of Samsung Kies 3. I upgraded on my 'Admistrator' account (successfully) by when I tried to open the program on my 'User' (non-administrator) account it said there was an update available. I updated but again received the message there was an update. I uninstalled Kies 3 then reinstalled on my Administrator account but when I returned to my User account it still...

Three Tethering Scam by CJB[_2_]
Three Tethering Scam I have a Three dongle and a '15 for 5GB per month' mobile dongle account.. All is fine except when I run out of data allowance when I have to resort to a fall back. (Top up isn't allowed). This fall back is a Three S2 Skyphone PAYG tethered to my lap top. However Three has now reduced the PAYG options. I usually do a 10 top up. This give me free 3-3 minutes and texts -...

Phone advice by John Smith[_4_]
I've come to the end of an O2 contract with a Samsung Galaxy S4 and put the contract on monthly SIM only. I'd like like to get another phone as the S4 is rather slow and I've cracked the screen but didn't fancy another 24 month deal. I can get the Galaxy S6 for about 290 - is this a good deal or are there other phones I should look at - mostly interested in good screen and performance in...

Galaxy S3 storage by Woody[_4_]
I have just been given a Galaxy S3. Can anyone tell me how to make it store photogrpahs received by MMS directly onto the SD card as my previous phone (Huawei) did? Or am I faced with having to manually move the pictures? --

"MiFi" for overseas and vice-versa by AnthonyL
Travelling to Asian country about 1 month and looking at internet options. There will be some WiFi at various places but local sims with data are cheap and so are a couple of MiFi devices - well unlocked at around 30 plus 50p/Gb data. I am not sure how versatile these devices are in terms of their spectrum usage - I've been told 1.3 & 2.4GHz. Surely if a mobile phone handles data then they...

Phone still showing old SIM number following PAC by Chris
My FIL has recently moved from O2 to Three and although the transfer went smoothly, the phone is still reporting the number which came with the Three SIM. This is both on the handset itself and when making outgoing calls. He receives calls fine on his old number and dialing the Three number doesn't connect. The phone is a Galaxy fame on gingerbread, I think. How can it be persuaded to...

Could lighthouses provide the solution to poor mobile phone coverage? by MB[_5_]
There is a report in the Oban Times that there have been talks between the NLB and a couple of mobile phone companies about the use of lighthouses as mobile phone base stations. It was in several other papers earlier in the month. Could lighthouses provide the solution to poor mobile phone coverage?

SMS to E-Mail before it gets to the phone? by [email protected]
Is there any mobile provider who does this? An SMS - E-Mail service that forwards a message when it arrives on my mobile is useless, the whole problem is that it won't arrive on my mobile because we have no coverage at home. I regularly get SMS messages which are days old when I go somewhere away form home with my phone. If there was a mobile provider who would copy the SMS to an...

Samsung S5 Mini by Scott[_3_]
Ever since I bought this phone there has been talk of the new version of Android (5.1 - Lollipop) becoming available but still no sign of it. Does anyone know if it will be available in the UK and indeed whether is is a good idea?

Three's "Three in Touch", how transparent is it? by [email protected]
Has anyone here used "Three in Touch"? If so can you tell me how transparent it is? I.e. if we set it up to work with our home Wifi (home has very marginal Three coverage, especially indoors) will it 'just work'? In particular I'm interested in making it possible to receive texts here at home without hassle. -- Chris Green
