Q3, iirc......... i think!
i spoke to three today
i ont think the person i spoke to knew what they were saying but when i mentioned the roaming compatibility they said they would provide a firmware upgrade?
Is that correct?
firmware upgrade wont do anything. your handset needs to specifically support the 850mhz frequency, which is a hardware thing. if it doesn't, then you cannot roam on the next g network. simple as that.
i got a call from 3 the other day about my free upgrade options since i am out of contract. i asked him to call me back when the 5800 was released . He said he would so we'll see what happens lol
3G Roaming and what is this other "tweak" they are talking about?
also, any idea if the N85 will be able to 3G roam, AB?
Seems like an odd move offering this 3G roaming service, with the possibility of being bought out or merged with Vodafone on the horizon.
How is 3 providing this service, paying Telstra for their network, paying Vodafone, or have they extended their own towers?
Excuse me if this is a stupid question.
Just got back to Australia and I'm a bit out of touch with what the best plans are. I don't make many calls on my mobile but I do a fair bit of local and international text. I don't want to go on a 24 month contract. I have my own phone.
Is there anything like just a standard pay as you go plan? As in I just sign up for it, make whatever calls and SMS' I need to and then just get billed for it at the end of the month? I got used to this in Europe and I like the freedom it offers rather than paying $xx a month and sometimes not using it or running out of credit at inopportune times.
My understanding from reading the announcement of the merger was that all deals with Telstra were off, and considering it was NextG for 3g roaming (which I now have a useless 850/2100mhz phone for) this wasn't going to happen?
I didn't quite understand why telstra would allow them to now join when they are about to jump in bed with a rival...
but short term there is a cash injection to telstra and we all know they are all for that.
Take a look at ABs post here:
Looks like the roaming agreement will still go ahead, although for how long remains unknown.
Should have gone an iPhone I still think. 16c/MB on Vodafone for extra usage is a hell of a lot better then I can find for data usage elsewhere... Then again, 1/2 of my Three data usage is roaming, because I'm indoors....
