    Re: Android phone with Xtramail setup

    You're better off using IMAP on your devices, so the mail stays in sync.

    Re: Question RE Dick Smith

    How is it "lots of shagging around" to ring their 0800 number, do some diagnostics over the phone and take it/send it in for repair? You will get the laptop back faster than if you had taken it to...

    Re: Question RE Dick Smith

    Yes, it's usually quicker to take goods direct to HP for repair rather than going through the retailer anyway.

    Re: New house - ADSL only - what/who to go with?

    SPA112 are pretty solid. My folks use VFX, you plug it in, put in a configuration URL, tell VFX the MAC and that's it. I assume similar with 2talk.

    Re: Huawei HG 695

    We are talking about a router that retails for sub $200 and is often given away here. Would I use one in a business critical situation or if hosting services? Hell no. For most consumers as an all in...

    VOIP doesn't always play nice with CG-NAT. So if you go with BigPipe, make sure you pay the $45 one off cost for a static IP.

    Re: Huawei HG 695

    The only router I can think of that doesn't work with other ISPs is the old Telecom 2Wire. I've used a Spark HG659 on Spark, 2Degrees, BigPipe, Vodafone & Slingshot with no issues. They are IMO one...

    Re: Huawei HG 695

    Spark connections don't care about username/passwords. It should in theory work. You could flash the Spark firmware, but I don't think it will make a difference.

    What device are you testing with, if it's a PC how old is it, what are the specs, and what is the OS.

    The Fassbender one. Saw it in the states. Not that the earlier one was very good either.

    I'm not sure Apple fans care??

    Not exactly news that he wasn't the nicest guy in the world. I saw it last year and it was pretty average.

    Re: Petrol

    Because there is a lot of tax on fuel in the UK. Something like 60p a litre is tax, then 20% VAT on the rest. It's just over 1 a litre here at the moment.

    Re: Spark Fibre questions, my turn

    Ring Spark and ask to upgrade to the HG659b, there will be a cost but it's a much better router/wifi AP than the HG630b they will otherwise supply.

    Re: Spark Mobile Srvice quality

    In areas where there is no 2Degrees service then you will roam onto Vodafone. I've not seen reports that you roam on to Voda if there is a network fault with 2D.
