I use the Telecom t-stick to demo my software to potential customers in the upper north island. AT home I have good wired, fast Telecom broadband and don't use the T-stick.
I used the old Telecom CDMA mobile card for 2 years without one problem and got excellent coverage for $40 per month.
I upgraded my laptop and unfortunately the old CDMA card no longer fits my new laptop and I have to use the newer T-stick which plugs into a USB port. (HP using XT)
I installed it in November and took 2-3 months to get it working - many, many long hours on the phone to Telecom, uninstalling and reinstalling sw, changing the SIM, resetting the network etc etc.
Now it only works intermittantly, doesn't work in any concrete buildings, and is totally unreliable. Recently I tried to use it in an office in the main street in Hamilton. It wouldn't go so my customer pulled out her laptop and old Telecom CDMA which worked perfectly.
Can someone give me some advice; should I try Vodafone, use my Vodafone phone to hook up or what else can I try?
The Customer service at Telecom has improved and the CS officers are very friendly and try to help me. I have come to the conclusion that there must be a problem with the device or the network.
Is anyone else having these problems?
