1. Which addon are you using - unlimited broadband or X-Series?
2. Do you have unresticted access to all websites (tinytube included)?
3. Do you have full access to real streams and are you experiencing cut-outs?
4. Does Orb work for you - please detial which services function if any?
5. Do third party apps work for you - skype, voipbuster sms sender, gmail etc. If so, which ones?
Awaiting your responses with interest.
unlimited broadband 100MB bundle (POSTPAY)
it would be best to post a list of sites people have problems with in this thread so others can test them. tinytube does not work. "This web page is unavailable to view"
never used real streams, again links here would be useful in this one thread if op could slot some in for testing in main post, I’ll try them (or anyone else in a subsequent post).
don't use it at present.
Most 3rd pary apps work e.g. Gmail, Worldmate, Resco News, Vox
Others do not, namely Fring which used to work fine for me before.
Sorry I cannot be of more help as this thread is useful to report the current status of 3's "unlimited" offering and these latest ridiculous limitations everyone is experiencing. If everyone can put up the links, apps, etc that are problematic I will gladly test them in my browser.
Its obvious they have recently blocked ports and its not on frankly.
If they were blocked from day 1 that would be in breach of their unlimited offering (in a way similar to Vodafones current blocking on their 50MB daily allowance for 99c, but then again they never claimed it was "unlimited"!) BUT to have had
access to sites and apps (like Fring) and then have that taken away, well thats just a kick in the head and unfortunately for 3, everyone has noticed. Just look at the amount of 3 issues in recent posts. Not on.
