Turning off 2G GSM/EDGE? And its quad-frequency modem and yet making calls/text exchanges? Hugh? Whatever. Sorry, no offence intended to your personna, but we will have to agree to disagree.

Yeah, weird, right? I have no idea why. All I know was that my brother and mine's iPhones both get 1 bar at least on 3G while my mom's Motorola V191 and dad's V197 on GSM don't. Had to turn off 3G to conserve battery on the iPhone and presto, no signal, too. But neither the iPhones or the Motos could make or receive a phone call or, equivalently, send/receive texts, righ...

ilikewireless (Hello!) is absolutely right. The web UI for activation appears to have issues. And setting/changing the input encoding (in this case unicode) appears to fix things. As an aside, some foreign users, with foreign localizations, have had problem even when mapping their keyboards and using the "@" on email addresses. Even ALT+64 (the equivalent of "@") did not ...

And this is probably also correct (although I have not tested this, personally). I was wondering since i got the $25 plan a month. If I put $25 with instant refill. Doesn't that mean I can't get charged for anything else. Because the only money they will have at their disposal is the $25. The pay-as-you-go charges (auto-deductions) apply mostly to those that must maintai...

hme83 is correct. Clearing the APN (Access Point Name) of your instrument and making it the default APN, if your insturment allows, will deny data service regardless of the network-side settings, as the instrument will not be able to issue the cellular data packet as it is purposely mis-configured (it does not know the proxy gateway, the protocol and/or the service port)....

And that is pretty standard over-the-air provisioning for all cellphones. Texting also uses the GSM bands as it is short messaging over "talk bands". And that is working, meaning that the number for the T-Mobil...

Hello hnzw_rui, "*sigh* 3G data uses up battery quick. Unfortunately, I can't downgrade it to 2G as there are some locations that don't get 2G signal but still get 3G. Never thought that was possible. No 2G EDGE signal? But 3G UMTS signal? Huh? You may have to "root" (jailbreak) the device to delete the built-in apps. But I do not use Android 2.x, or any Android, so I am...

I also saw the "5Kbyte" increments on the terms and conditions. But after experimentation the counters seemed to follow 1KByte increments instead, reported incorrectly as seconds by the Ericsson system. Just verifying/correcting this would be of great assistance (at least to me).

Hello hnzw_rui, Exactly as I predicted with "always-on" processes. You will probably find that there are processes that cannot be disabled and consume cellular-data bandwidth -- unless you can eliminate them from the startup list at boot time. SUGGESTION: Also, add an accounting of your account history in 1Kbyte units -- the Ericsson system marks cellular-data in seconds...

You need to take this into account when you select your GoPhone plan. As ...
