    just got a t610 on the o2 online 100 tarrif and i have a few questions that
    id apprciate answering

    1. Which would be better to use my 500 free wap mins or my GPRS which will i
    get more out of. according to the tarrif if i dont use my wap mins a get 1mb
    of gprs and i was wondering which setting i should use

    2. why dont the delivery reports work? i sent messages to my old phone and
    recieved them yet i have not had delivery reports like i used to on the t68i
    even though i have turned on the status request section is there sonething
    else i need to do

    3. is there a number you can ring to find out how many free mins are left
    like on orange?

    4. Ive been reading that people on o2 have problems mms ing becasue it is
    not activated, should i just ring them and get it turned on

    many thanks for any replys!

    1MB won't get you too far. It depends what you're doing really. The T610 has
    the facility under 'calls' then 'costs' then 'data meter' or something like
    that to see how much GPRS traffic you've used - so you might as well
    experiment with both. Sometimes GPRS feels as dog slow as WAP anyway....

    turn delivery report requests off
    prefix each message *0# (asterisk zero hash)
    sorry - there's no other way to do it

    I ended up having to write to the Directors' home addresses.

    And you will need it. Took me two telephone calls, three emails and two
    weeks to get mine activated for MMS. Rang up the complaints line and they
    did it within 15 minutes :-(

    I'd go for the free WAP/free MMS. On your tariff, you can send picture
    messages for free (but it eats up 4 of your 500 text each time). AFAIK
    you can either have the ability to send/receive MMS or have GPRS. You
    can't have both on O2 Online. I have no idea why.

    When I worked in PAYG, we always said that O2 don't support delivery
    reports but I read about that *0# on that consumerdeals.co.uk site.
    Not sure if it works. Really strange tho - since O2 EIRE supports
    delivery reports straight out of the box.

    You can get that information from your o2 bill - log in and see the
    unbilled usage bit. The system is 24 hours + whatever time it is
    behind (i.e. at 12:30pm today, it was 24 hours + 12h 30mins behind)
    but it's fine as a projection and even shows text messages. You could
    also get that information from the 0906 guys, or the finance guys
    (0870 220 3297), or the retentions guys (0870 225 9933) - but they'd
    really be getting that information from the unbilled screen too.

    Unbilled usage is actually something that's really improved since the
    May 8th upgrade was fixed on 1st July.

    General advice is to mail [email protected] inc. name, date of
    birth, mobile no and address, asking them to do that. Do you want MMS
    enabled? 077xxxxx990, aye?

    oh I completely forgot that part. so I just order 02 online offpeak
    tariff with the T610 so will they have it default for MMS or GPRS and
    how do I get it change from one to the other if I need to in the
    future?

    I have the online 200 tariff and as far as i can see you can use both GPRS
    and WAP plus MMS. I was a bit confused as the online stuff says you get
    0.5MB but the paperwork i got says you can used either WAP or GPRS (2MB in
    my example). I emailed the O2 guys and got a reply which matches what it
    says online, 0.5MB and WAP. You get the 500 WAP and also 0.5MB GPRS. If you
    think you have the choice you may end up having a bill as you don't actually
    have the GPRS you think you do I would imagine!

    If you log in, go to my account, view my bill and unbilled calls, go to
    mobile summary, and select your mobile. (Nearly there, I don't know if there
    are quicker ways to this!) click now on Inclusive allowance details and it
    breaks down what you have left on your account (remember it takes 24 hours
    to show up all). I know I have used GPRS to connect but it doesn't seem to
    show up.

    As for MMS, I seem to be able to send and receive them on my phone but they
    rarely seem to turn up to other people's phones. Is this a problem with it
    not being set up okay or just that MMS is tempremental? I better email o2
    and wait for the 6 day wait again!

    Re: t610 o2 online questions, please help

    rang up o2 to sort out the mms and was told that they would sort it out and
    it would take upto 5 days

    my mate did the same he got a sim update so he actually has an mms account
    on the phone and told he could use it in 3 days, they really need to sort
    themselves out!
