Hi,

2 questions please.

1. Is there an equivalent to texting bal to 777 on telecom postpaid to find out how much I have to pay at some point during the month?

2. On a low cost Telecom provided phone if I visit pdaportal.telecom.co.nz -> your telecom it automatically logins. If I put the SIM into an iPhone it asks for the username/password. Since my FW version seems to be buggy and doesn't want to save/remember passwords it's a bit of an annoyance. Any hints on how to make it auto login?

Thanks.

Using the TelecomContent APN seems to make mine autologin to My Telecom.

On prepaid, texting anything starting with the letter b to 333 will reply with your prepaid balance etc. Not sure about postpaid though.

I tried to use the TelecomContent (wap.telecom.co.nz) APN but still it's not logging in automatically.
I checked the APN on the telecom supplied phone and it's using the default APN: internet.telecom.co.nz.

Thanks.

I dont know of a texting option, however calling *333 will give remaining minutes and texts, pressing 1 will give Mobile Broadband Allowance info.
