BT fixes home hub drop-out glitch ONE YEAR after denying flaw existed

Re: Weasel words!

What they say is true, one of the 2015 updates caused HH5s with one or both wireless bands disabled to restart every 2 or 3 minutes. Enabling 5 and 2.4GHz solved the issue temporarily but this seems to be the real fix. About 10 days since the bug appeared so not bad at all.

Orange spent weekend spamming customers with TXTs

"All of which sounds like (a); a SNAFU at orange and ; (b) a fine excuse for being late to work today, in “ Orange kept sending me TXTs all weekend so I turned of the sound on my phone and slept through the alarm” kind of way."

Muting notifications shouldn't mute alarms. At least it hasn't on any phone I have had this decade - is this an apple thing?

Re: Nope Nope Nope

I didn't think it was that expensive, maybe nowadays with Infinity for like £5 more, but back when I got it (2008 I think) a 24meg line (That really nearly made the full 24 too), 1 meg up, static IP addy for less than £20 was fantastic.

Got changed over from Be to Sky about a fortnight ago, speeds are severely reduced and I have received surcharges for not having sky TV or sky talk. So this was over pretty much from the moment it started.

Got my MAC yesterday (after an hour of phone calls, and them for some retarded reason having one of my old debit card details rather than my current (for the last 6 months) card) and have now ordered BT Infinity with all the trimmings.

RIP In Peace Be, FU Sky.

Would be interesting to have the writers thoughts on how the NOVA display stacks up against the Super AMOLED of the SGS, and Super AMOLED Plus of the SGSII.

It's better, but really the latest firmware is only fixing issues and not adding any features. We are going to need to see 4OD etc before its getting a 90%

Do like mine though.

Re: Size

So true, i love my nb100 and it would have been nice to stick to something that size when it comes time to upgrade.

touch of confusion and possible skulduggery regarding this, the rendered pic 1 in the article and a few more during show the screen displaying an image almost to the very edge - which had me drowning in my own drool.
