Tethering by Woody[_4_]
Does anyone know where I might find a list of SPs that permit tethering on PAYG? I am currently on GG which for 10pm gives me 500 minutes, unlimited texts, and 1GB data. VM currently have an offer of 2500 minutes and the rest the same for the same price. The absolutes are unimportant. The particular place where it would be useful has good 3G/4G coverage

Mi-Fi SIM by Woody[_4_]
Question: if I buy a SIM for my mi-fi unit and that SIM comes with a 30-day bundle, when does that 30 day period start? Is it the first time the SIM registers with the SP, or is it the first time a data transaction takes place? I have several such SIMs but haven't used any yet. I suppose it could be that the first time I go on line I have to give ersonal info so as such that could/would be...

Three and disconnected service. by brightside S9
Anyone had three disconnecting payg because they say " no top-ups have been made in 6 months"? I know that if the phone is not used for a chargeable action within 6 months then the service will be discontinued. T & Cs Suspension of Services 9.1(h). Three service desk are still adamant that a top-up has to be made at least every 6 months but seem incapable of pointing me to chapter and verse...

Cannot dial number - odd tones by Tough Guy no. 1265
Is there a website with samples of all the tones you can get when failing to make a mobile call? I'm calling from a mobile to a mobile and get all sorts of odd noises. I've tried every day for the last week and get a different noise each time. I can't remember what the others were, but today's is an almost continuous tone, with tiny gaps every half a second. The note is similar to what I...

Huawei E5330 by Dex
If using the Huawei E5330 as a hotspot and later connect it to a USB port to charge it it will connect to the internet through the cable as well, so I'll get both a wired and wireless connection. If I'm downloading or gaming the connection will be lost as it switches over. Any way to stop it connecting through the cable while charging?

A mobile that works like a landline phone? by Roy Brown
We are paying BT about 80 a quarter for a very underused service for my aged mother - maybe 14 calls out in a quarter, mostly pretty short. But she must *have* a phone. So what I thought would be good is a mobile, PAYG with auto topup, but in a cradle so it stays charged, preferably easy to use with big buttons, that she would use like her landline, but not get hit for that line rental.

Vodafone customer services call-back by Andrew Gabriel
Had reason recently to use Vodafone customer services, and wow, it's really crashed in quality since I last needed to talk with them ~18 months ago. 20+ mins on hold before I give up. Try registering for call-backs - they never happen? How on earth do you talk with Vodafone customer services? --

Mobile to landline forwarding - is there such a service? by [email protected]
We have poor to non-existent mobile reception at home. I keep trying to persuade banks and others that they *can* send text messages to our landline as the Gigaset DECT phones quite happily accept and display SMS. However my complaints fall on deaf ears. So, is it possible to set up a 'mobile' number (e.g. 07xxx xxxxxx) that will forward to our landline number? Do any of the VOIP providers...

Phones need 'bed mode' to protect sleep by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-34744859 On my phone and tablet you can either adjust the brightness manually or set it to reduce automatically in low ambient light (my TV and the dash on my car do this too). Perhaps Prof. Gringas should follow the adage "if all else fails read the instructions" or RTFM for short!

Transferring number from SIM not registered to me by Tux
So my mobile phone, and a bunch of other stuff, got stolen a few days ago. I'm wondering how I can get the old number transferred to a new SIM, given that the original SIM is not registered to me. I just inherited the SIM from a friend when I first arrived in London about a year ago, and he'd inherited it from somewone else and so on and so forth to the point where noone knows who it was...

4G on a houseboat by marine4G
I'm trying to help a local who wants 4G internet on his boat (narrow/long boat, ie a floating submarine with windows). He has a reasonable O2 4G signal on his smartphone outside his boat. I'm reasonably tech savvy. The Ultra-Cheap solution: The Passive Repeater: Probably a directional 800/900/1900MHz antenna outside. This connects to a very simple antenna inside the boat.

Recommendation required by Woody[_4_]
Can anyone suggest a fairly simple NON-smartphone that has 3G capability. My management just cannot get on with smartphones (maybe doesn't want to?) but she is getting fed up with her Nokia C1-01 apparently switching itself on and draining the battery. I have seen the Samsung 5611 Utopia, and I know Doro do a clamshell phone that does 3G, but what else? When she finds out she is paying...

Voice calls via WiFi by Maurice
Here near Hindhead the SO is having difficulty with the Vodaphone signal strength, and we're wondering if voice calls via our domestic WiFi would be the answer. I'm on Three, whose signal (2G, as no 3G) here is good, appear to have provided a free app to facilitate voice over WiFi: http://tinyurl.com/lawtgec Anyone know if Vodaphone have anything similar?

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...

Best deal for calls to Scandinavian mobiles by Fredxxx
Ideally with a cap on costs. Are there any out there? 3 say they do, but in reality their deals are only to Scandinavian landlines, not mobiles. Any ideas, or a better group to ask this question?

Sainsburys mobile to close by tim.....
Bugger what do I do now? Apart from the matter of the twenty quid that they owe me that I'm certainly not going to spend in the next three months, I need an alternative It has to be a genuine Pay as you go, not one that operates "bundles that expire in 30 days cos I simply don't make enough calls. Looking not to be ripped off to pay back the theoretical subsidy on a phone which I didn't

Mail server slow? by Daniel James[_2_]
I've been noticing, increasingly, recently that connecting mail from my mailbox on A&A's mail server is taking significantly longer than one might hope -- both from Thunderbird under Debian on my A&A ADSL connection and over Vodafone's network from my Android phone. I've also had a few messages not send on the first attempt, apparently because the SMTP server has timed out. Apart from being...
