"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

Month two of the Xmas EE SIM by Roland Perry
Having ordered four (or possibly five, it's not clear whether EE's different forum peeps talk to each other and dedupe complaints) and received just one, I had my 100G of data during January, and topped up again for the second (and final) month of the offer. Got a fairly content-free text about that, and a week later another attempting to give the impression that they were awarding me a...

Dealing with SMS spam by Tim+[_3_]
I installed an app for streamline taxis once upon a time. Deleted it not long after but ever since I've been getting the occasional SMS spam from them about once every three months. No big deal but I HATE SMS spam and always respond with STOP. Despite this, they keep coming but from a different number every time. Is there anything I can do other than threaten to charge them a handling fee for...

Which phone? Moto E 2015 or HTC Desire 320 by Dick
So, a new budget phone beckons and I've read lots of reviews but would appreciate any opinions on the Moto E 2015 as compared witht eh HTC Desire 320. Specs and sizes are broadly similar but Moto doesn't have a LED that can be used as a torch and the HTC runs KitKat rather than Loliipop (but maybe this is an advantage?). TIA

Phones that allow fingernail touch? by Mr Macaw
Has the world gone completely over to capacitive touchscreens? My old satnav lets me tap with my fingernail (it's a resistive screen), but I've not seen a mobile in quite some time that allows this. You have to use the end of your finger, which is less precise, leaves fingerprints, and to me doesn't feel very comfortable to do repeatedly, especially dragging - it's like running your nails down...

Proprietary Apple connectors are more reliable by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Aren't they? http://9to5mac.com/2016/01/28/apple-wall-adapter-recall/ https://www.apple.com/support/ac-wallplug-adapter/ Their latest stunt is to ditch the 3.5mm jack because it is 'too thick' for their latest thin phone. I have three old Motorola phones and several Siemens DECT phones with 2.5mm jacks - all over ten years' old.

How to have a phone for two users, or manage someone else's phone? by [email protected]
My wife is a very busy sort of person (a college principal) so I try to do all of the spadework of managing her mobile phone accounts (phone and tablet). If I register the account in my name then I can do all the management but occasionally things go awry when she needs to do something. On the other hand if I use her name then I can't do anything with the account. Customer services at Three...
