I've been to MYA, and i can see my contract account GPRS usage
Nothing there for the prepays i've got linked there.
i've got rougly $200 balance on each of my 2 prepay sim, don't want them to suddenly leap to zero.
i'll have to bug 777 and ask if there's any possiblity of unbilled GPRS suddenly being billed - ie how long is their longest billing delay.
Anyone know how to ring 777 from a landline? (there's not enough coverage here to hold a phone call).
I have called 777 - they say i did $60 @ midday today.
took me 10 minutes to rack up $60 bill.
I did some calculations, and that means an average of 10kbyte/s
the nice lady on 777 thinks it might be billing fault - so i'll await her findings
it's possible my brand new palmPDA decided to do something suddenly and talked to my phone while i was away at lunch??? I would hope not. If that is the case what i need is the IP addresses that i talked to.
With questions like where and what you have contacted to be would need to be investagated as I have quered things like this in the past and they had to lodge a job with the techincal team to look into it.
The nice people on 777 - 0800 800 021 gave me a job number and said it would take a few days as its not a urgent request.
I would call and ask to see what happened as Im sure Vodafone do note that you called etc and if no action taken I would ask for them to escalate this and get your a job number to follow up on.
never did get my call returned by 777, so i phoned again and this is the story i got this time.
Vodafone upgraded their wap gateway or somethign related to billing over summer. This was because (or a result of??) all GPRS in december not being charged correctly.
So, on the 11th January, (the day after i topped up my prepay) 2+ months of GPRS usage was billed to my account :-(
it included GPRS traffic all the way back into late november.
i'm more than a little peeved. yeah, i used the traffic, but i expected more timely billing, and wanted to work out what the costs were. I'd heard vodafone live was free around the same so thought that might be why.. and when i was not charged for so long i thought it was an indication that GPRS was free and/or traffic to vodafone's imap server was free.....
so, i'm peeved that billing wasn't done in a timely manner.. bleh....
