    ... a prompt *before* each call.

    With VOIP.ms, for a few cents more, you could setup a Toronto (or whatever) phone number that automatically calls the international number too (e.g. if you wanted...

    Been a while since I used Android, but I recall a setting that you could turn on and it would prompt how you wanted to make the call: phone network, Skype or my VoIP app.

    If Android has a built-in...

    My recommended workaround for this:

    Get an account at voip.ms. They bill in US$. Their VoIP rates are pretty much the lowest you can get. You will see that sometimes Freedom must have been taking...

    Reddit suggests it was 6 months minimum plus an extra month per year of service, to a max of 30 months.

    So if you've been there for 10 years, you get 16 months of pay. More than enough time to...

    Where is this coming from? Higher frequencies are *better* at covering large areas without many obstructions because they have narrower fresnel zones. Higher frequencies handle the convexity of the...

    In a roundabout way, you could setup a conditional redirect to an SIP client through a Voip service. (Finally going to a Voip voicemail if that doesn't get answered).

    This has the benefit of being...

    SIMs are still available at Telus buildings in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Send a friend, get the SIM #, and activate it. You don't need the card to activate, just the SIM #.

    I'm only getting 2 bars inside on LTE... Just did another test: 13/4 on LTE. 4bars on 3G: 16.6/1.8. Either way, I'm much happier, no hangs, pages load fast, Skype call testing service works fine....

    In Wind's defence, I have great Wind coverage where I live, speed tests around 7/1, mild congestion during rush hour. I get fewer bars on Public Mobile, but it doesn't seem to matter.

    I activated...

    Don't give them too much credit. Coaxial infrastructure owners just happened to end up in a much better position than POTS infrastructure owners when data to the home became a thing. They had a TV...

    Correct, but I understand an LD add-on can take care of that. 4c/minute isn't bad for LD.

    I have a system where missed calls failover to my voicemail through a VoIP provider. I'll set it up so it...
  13. Porting out main account # - What happens to secondary account #s?

    Hi,

    My account is the primary, and a pay-before.

    I have 2 secondary lines on the account that are pay-after.

    What happens if I port out just the primary account? Can I still login to the...

    No kidding. The RFD thread has 3k replies and 200k views in < 1week. And it's the most active discussion on the Toronto subreddit today.

    It is nice to see some more towers on Hamilton mountain, but lots of poor-service areas as you get closer to Rymal. I'm not sure the Red Hill Valley Expressway will ever be able to hold a phone...

    Why bother with a GPS or roaming? If you have an Android phone, just download Google's offline maps. And if you don't have an Android, there are other off-line map apps, but I like how Google's will...
  17. iPhone 6S fails to send SMS to some French #s, other iPhone 6S can.

    Odd situation:

    2 iPhone 6S phones, purchased in France unlocked (but at different times). Both phones were moved on to Wind at the same time about a month ago.

    Both phones have international...

    My speculation:

    If you're a Wind creditor AND you drafted your contract poorly AND Wind goes bankrupt, then one of Wind's prime assets is a bit harder to get at.

    For the rest of us, it doesn't...

    Since Youtube runs over HTTPS, I doubt they're inspecting packets. More likely they're throttling everything that's going to Youtube.com, including pageloads, streaming, uploads, etc.

    Doubtful that it's (just) a mime-type throttle. Everything on youtube these days goes over HTTPS. Netflix too it seems.

    Could someone do an upload over Youtube? I'm over my limit at the moment :(
