Last Friday I made the call to Orcon to get my UFB plan upgraded from the "old" 30/10 to the "new" 100/20.  Today, we were upgraded; so after a couple of hours outage we now have internet back.  Unfortunately, my phone isn't working at the moment - apparently I need to wait until the "new" router arrives - I was aware of this, as this has been noted in other threads.


As a work-around, I've installed the "Genius Go" app on my Android phone.  However, it looks like the app still only talks to the "old" back-end systems, as I had to use my "old" username/password pair; and not the "new" ones.


 Is there anyone from Orcon around who can comment on if the Genius Go app should be able to (or when a new version will be able to) talk to the "new" backend ?   Or will this still work on the "new" backend once my landline has been transitioned over??


 I'm assuming that my "old" username/password will go away at some point fairly shortly; but I still like the idea of the Genius Go app; it's unclear on their website about if the app still works with "new" accounts.

And for future reference, in case anyone else looks:


Orcon Technical Support confirmed that the Genius Go app only works with the "old" system; now I've been migrated over, the app won't work.

Yup, that's correct. We're working on an app that will work for people in the new platform.

Don't forget the Windows Phone app to while your at it, getting sick and tired of companies ignoring the fact there is a third phone OS out there and using the old oh but we don't have many WP phone owners is a tired and lazy excuse at best
