tdgeek: Sort of on topic

I setup my mates iPhone 5 that I sold him. This thread (I think) led me to believe that 2D will get carrier updates. Not so, but thats ok.I set the APN's. I sent a 13MB video via iMessage and it never arrived. I got that iMesaage from my daughter. That was Telecom to Telecom. I work for Telecom, but can Salty or other provide any help?

Cheers


Yes, there are carrier updates. I found on my wife's phone though that I had to update her to 7.0.4 before it noticed. Mine was already on 7.0.4 when they became available and it got them immediately.


Tks for that. Ill check his version, I am sure it is 7.04. Odd thing, is that when he sends a message it uses iMessage, but when I send him a message, it goes thru as a text, not an iMessage. Hence I assume this is why the video failed.

Hi Donald

 

 

 

Here's some fantastic news to help keep you connected while you’re out and about over the holidays. From 26 December 2013 when your plan allocations next renew, you’ll get even more!

 

 

 

Your plan now comes with 400 Carryover Minutes

 

 

 

Your $49 Carryover Plan now comes with a bunch of extra Carryover Minutes each month, so you can keep talking for longer.

 

 

 

More Carryover Data!

 

 

 

We’ve also given your data a boost so you’ll now get 1.25GB each month.

 

 

 

And remember with Carryover Minutes and Carryover Data, any minutes or data you don’t use simply carry over to the next month, and keep carrying over for up to 12 months!

 

 

 

Our $10 NZ Data Pack now gets you 500MB

 

 

 

We’ve bumped up the data in our $10 NZ Data Pack so it now comes with 500MB. When you need a little more data you have a choice of four NZ Data Packs to keep you connected throughout NZ.

 

 

 

Here’s to a fantastic Christmas and great start to the New Year with 2degrees.

 

 

 

Thanks for being with us,

 

 

 

The Team at 2degrees

DonGould:

I was again in the mall this afternoon with one of my 2dgrees customers.  He couldn't send a text message to another friend who we were to meet. 

His brand new alcaltel phone just would not send the message to the contact he had selected.

Points for the first person who figures it.

I had no idea.

The 2Degrees guy spotted the answer in under 5 seconds.

You get my help to set up your next mobile account! ;)

That's exactly what he was doing! 

I take care to select the correct number type when adding numbers to my address book, so the thought hadn't even occurred to me.
