If you had an iPhone you could install Consume and access your usage portal through the app. If you had an iPhone.

I can pinch zoom and hit login, as i have my details saved in the browser, but for anyone without this capability, i imagine its frustrating.

It doesn't really make sense either.

Since we are in the "let's pick" I think this kind of post is rather impractical because requires me to copy and paste the URL in another browser tab/window to see the image. Why not use the rich-text editor button and insert the image in the original post?

freitasm: Oh, I see - you posted from Geekzone Mobile... Oh well, wonders of mobile web.


Speaking of which, is it possible to stay in the main GZ site when accessing from mobile rather than get directed to the mobile site?

Just click the link at the bottom of the mobile site and you will switch to the full version. Seeing you are on a mobile browser we don't even serve ads, to make it fast. How good is that?

Thats very good indeed. All I need now is my bloody phone back so I can try it :(

Although I think that once inside the main site I kept getting bumped into mobile when I went to different pages, but I may be wrong, no phone cant test it.

I use Dolphin browser and it has a password manager which is handy, although you still have to enter it once obviously.

 Doh you already have a password manager!

Sorry bout that, i was going to give HTML code a try but wasn't sure if the mobile reply box would parse it properly, and a bunch of broken html code looks worse than a straight url i thought.

Was going to update it when i checked the topic again when i got home, but forgot about the whole short edit window thing.

On my Android 2.1 device I have it set to login automatically in native browser at least.

Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names > Your APN > add 210.55.11.73 as your proxy, and port 80.

Everything else should be the same.

Looks like a very useful app. Any tips on how to make it work on xt postpaid? I have the right username (mobile#) and password as I login via iphone through T-World but when I enter same details in Consume it fails. I have got it to work with my home broadband connection. Very cool

Yeah i just realised that the TelecomContent APN will auto login.

But why is this page designed to be accessed by a desktop browser?
