  1. It works for SOME of the N-series iirc. Probably those with pop-ports as opposed to mini-USB (no m/f-bus?) The unlock worked for a 6680 I had here, but the person who gave it to me forgot to mention it was on the blacklist so it wouldn't register to any network in the first place. Bah.
  2. The number has nothing to do with vintage. Series 60 is used on most "candybar" phones, the ones you'd most likely use. Like these: http://www.s60.com/life/s60phones/browseDevices.do Series 80 is used on the old/new Nokia communicators (9000, 9110, 9210, 9300, 9300i, 9500). As I said above, I believe future communicators will be S60 based. If anything, Series 60 is far more developed than Series 80, and orders of magnitude more popular. If you wanted a smartphone, Series-60 based phones are worth a look. (the only real differences between 60 and 80 is the user interface, the underlying OS is still symbian, but that doesn't mean applications are interchangeable)
  3. Series 80 = the communicators. I have one, it's really very good, doesn't have any real "omg this needs to be signed or i'm not running it gtfo" controls, but a bit big. I think the "new" communicators are going to be series 60, with a full series 60 phone on the front cover, but I might be wrong. I also have a stack of Series 60 phones, also very good but I can't speak for 3rd edition phones because I don't have one. UIQ = the sony ericsson bricks.
  4. If I had the money, yes. But I live in the UK so frequency issues are not an issue here
  5. Technically it isn't free - if you want more messages, you pay more. It is INCLUSIVE. And everyone knows that o2 online PAYG is the one to go for for genuinely free messages and minutes. (yes, free - you topup with £10, get x mins/msgs and £10 credit)
  6. If the PUK is blocked, the SIM card self-destructs. Wrong. If you attempt the PUK code and get it wrong (you have a limited amount of tries) *THEN* it self-destructs, messing up the SIM PIN does NOT cause the SIM to self-destruct. @kurd: DO what GIJoe said, you MUST call your carrier to fix this, don't F with the phone without the right PUK code. Did I say that messing up the SIM PIN makes the card self-destruct? No. I said that if the PUK "is blocked", then the sim card self destructs. Maybe the OP meant to say PIN instead of PUK, whatever.

  8. Entanet, as you can see from the speedtest result. And to reiterate the lack of shaping, you'll see that ubuntu downloads PDQ.
  9. Tiscali is not unlimited. they have a fair usage policy. A draconian one at that. Cheap ISP != good isp - if you want to download tons you will have to pay for it. BTW - BT's new option 3 is "unlimited" with FUP, but they aren't shaping (yet), but at least they actually let you use the internet. My ISP do not shape specific protocols, only everyone on a particular central pipe if the bandwidth demand exceeds supply - personally I think it is the best and fairest way of doing things. Whatever I do, I can do it at full line speed most of the time, and at a minimum of 2Mbps at the most congested times. (and i know how things are - I live in the UK, obviously) EDIT: speedtest, right now:
  10. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! sorry. I think the problem here is the ISP - pay a bit more and get a decent ISP, one that lets you use the internet is the solution. Even BT are far better. Ever wondered why Tiscali is so damn cheap (and trying to get cheaper)? because their network sucks, they oversell capacity. And on maxdsl, it's even worse Tiscali have 10Mbit VPs (virtual paths, what all your data goes through to get to tiscali - on 8Mbit, one person at full speed can nearly saturate it). Also, unlimited + BT-based ISP (everyone except bulldog, be, etcetc) does not exist anymore, for any reputable ISP. Basically, if you're looking for a cheap ISP, it's not going to be a good one.
  11. PUK

    NOT sure if this will work, but sometimes downgrading the bootloader will fix it...best bet is google, theres a pretty good chance someone HAS had that problem....I unlocked a supposedly unlockable/hard to unlock phone after googling for a few weeks. Good luck and dont brick your phone. How would that work? The PUK is used when you have entered the wrong PIN 3 times (SIM card PIN that is). It has nothing to do with the phone, if he put his SIM into another phone it would ask for the PUK there too. If you enter the wrong PUK 10 (?) times, the SIM is permanently destroyed. Over in the UK, a couple of the networks let you get your PUK online (o2 in particular only needs your mobile number to give you the PUK - very insecure). You would need to call the network and get them to give you the PUK.
  12. <pedant> I believe the country you are looking for is the UK - the four constituents of the UK share the same numbering plan, the same telecommunications network owned and operated by the same incumbent telco called BRITISH telecom (and kingston comms) who charge the same prices and offer the same services to the entire population of the United Kingdom. </pedant> (have I said "same" enough?) What about Ireland? (/Real/ Ireland, not North Ireland.) They have their own thing? The Republic has its own incumbent telco (Eircom), its own third-party telcos, its own numbering plan and it's own regulator (COMREG). They are obviously taking ideas from BT/OFCOM (who lead the world in shitty "regulation", if you can call it that) in how to lag behind the rest of Europe with regard to pricing and broadband availability. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eircom http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comreg http://www.eircom.ie/cgi-bin/bvsm/bveircom/mainPage.jsp http://www.comreg.ie/

  14. I didn't think you could do it on modern SIM cards - don't they auto-destruct after so many times guessing the Ki?
  15. I also found that it would keep breaking up for me, whereas "proper" SIP/IAX2 based voip was fine. People still try to use skype as a replacement for their landline, even so that they build a computer just to run it! http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/8592 - I wonder if he's heard of a SIP ATA. Personally this free calls crap didn't affect me as I don't live in the US or Canada. I wouldn't use it even if they paid me.
