Default TalkMobile

Hi All,

I am looking around for a new sim only deal and see that TalkMobile seem to
have some good deals.

Any idea if they have good coverage or not? - im currently with Tescomobile
which isnt partically good where we live so cant be much worse? Someone
said they work in train tunnels!?

Do talkmobile also support 3G etc...?
How much are MMS?

Does it work in the EU - France & Spain in particular?

Im not too fussed on customer service, im with tesco like i said, so im use
to poor customer service, as long as the thing works i be happy!

Many Thanks!

Jack.

Talkmobile use the Vodaphone network.

Yes to 3G; don't know which etceteras you're interested in )

Go to <http://www.talkmobile.co.uk/simple.html> and click on "View all
call charges" at the foot of the page.

My main gripe is the number of calls I get from Talkmobile asking if I
like the service and trying to sell me an upgrade. Not quite as
annoying as Talk Talk on the land-line, though.

I'm with TalkMobile, on PAYG, and the service and coverage seems OK, call
charges good, plus the Internet access charges are reasonable. and I do not
get any promo calls from them, but that might be to do with the PAYG
account. The easiest way to stop these promo calls is to simply state when
called, 'could you please not ring me again about service or marketing
calls, and remove my number from your calling list in accordance with the
Data Protection Act'. Reputable companies are usually very good at complying
when the DPA is mentioned as it is against the law if they don't.

Thanks,

I see the MMS is dearer than tesco and the roaming charges are steeper too!

But i guess one has to take the overall package, sadly i wont be sunny
myself too much to bother about that for next year or so!

It runs on Vodafone so coverage is good, but as with all virtuals you
get lower call and data priority then Vodafone contract customers.
This wont be noticeable most of the time.

Check the Vodafone coverage checker for your postcode.

I've never used that particular feature but there's a global setting for
it on my smartphone, so I suppose that it's a standard part of the SMS
system regardless of service provider or network.

Thanks Dave, can you do this for an adhoc text ( like the O2 code) or does
it have to be set so will get a report on everyone you send?

Sorry mate, I don't know. On mine, it's a tick-box - select it to get
delivery reports on every one I send, deselect it to stop delivery
reports.

To me that would suggest that either you need to follow the instructions to
manually set up your MMS settings (instructions on talkmobile site) or that
you don't need to. Try sending a picture message to yourself and see what
happens. With some phones, sending the first MMS seems to enable the MMS
capability.

useless reply from talkmobile..

To set up this service, all you need to ensure is that the APN is entered
correctly into your handset. This will configure the service. To do this,
you need to complete the following steps:

a.. Settings
b.. Mobile networks
c.. Add APN
d.. talkmobile.co.uk
e.. Select save

English would be nice.

Have you actually tried using the PAYG settings as provided on the
talkmobile site? Click "talkmobile phone settings" on this page. Failing
that, ring their helpline (5888). Google also provides plenty of hits for
Windows mobile MMS settings.

How hard can asking for windows settings in english be? certainly no one
here understands me or in the CPW or by email or phone to 5888 to TM.

ive so far drawn a blank.

Perhaps if english speaking people read my post, you could see i have tried
the website, no luck with finding the settings or having them sent directly
to my phone.
I have even tried google, but its all icrap and androids, clearly anything
else is not worthy of a networks custom these days!

Well they can stick their chip up where the sun dont shine too much only on
saturday nights, im sticking with tescomobile which works fine with my aging
HD2 windows phone.

I still don't see a coherent reply from you confirming that you've
tried using the website's configuration option. Talkmobile's website
has this under Help & advice > Get your settings and then either [Get
your phone settings], which sends a configuration text to your phone, or
[Talkmobile phone settings] which lists the complete set of parameters
you would need to enter manually.

Personally, I've been pretty impressed with Talkmobile's customer
service. It's made out to be poor but that's the opposite of the
experience I've had.

I don't see anywhere in the thread you describing the phone you've got,
other than "Windows mobile". Perhaps this is sufficient - I don't know -
but searching for that along with talkmobile and mms settings gives at
least one site that provides instructions that it claims are correct.

Hi Chris...

I did put ..
"ive gone to setup my phone and after putting in my number and code, then
selecting my phone make and model it says....
"Click on "Send" to receive your Internet and MMS settings. If your phone
asks for a PIN code, please use 0000.

No settings can be configured for this phone"

There was no button to click for `Send`

When i called up, talkmobile confirmed the settings cannot be sent
automatically to my phone, a HTC HD2, not exactly an old phone.

Im not impressed at all with TM, from the email they gave back which was as
limp as a dead lettuce, saying go into a CPW shop and let them sort it out,
who didnt have a clue also.
Basically unless you are buying a phone or its a andriod or iphone they dont
care.

Then on the phone to TM today twice, they kept on giving me the contract
settnigs, i had to keep on reminding them im on PAYG so thats half the
reason why it isnt working.
So spend 1 in call charges ( 50p a call ) for sweet FA. Again, they
claim i must be the only person in the world with a HTC HD2 phone to ever
want to go to them.

It doesnt really matter what phone you have, just like andriods, windows
settings will work for all, at least when i went from my XDA O2 phone to
this HTC HD2 phone the settings were exacly the same for Tescomobile and
found in the same place, easy or what!

If only Andriod did TomTom and alot of other good things, perhaps I would
change over.

IF someone can find a windows phone set-up on the net via google for
talkmobile i'd be happy to be shown, i cannot find one not even on youtube.

I recently got an HTC Desire HD (Android) from e2save on Talkmobile and
had this very problem with the exact wording of "No settings can be
configured for this phone" - the reason was that it was all already set
up. Have you actually tried 'using' the phone to do what you want to
do? You may find that it just works, without any intervention from you.

I was actually trying to suggest that you should use English here if you
expect folk to help you.

You've still not said whether you've tried the settings I've pointed you to
on the Talk mobile site.
http://www.talkmobile.co.uk/get_your_settings.html

Have you?? All the PAYG settings are there for manual input.

Modern phones like Android, maybe iPhone and Windows, don't seem to use the
old settings texts that Nokia etc used to. Which is probably why TM don't
offer it for that phone model.

Note to the OP: Windows Mobile 6 and Windows Phone 7 (and 8) are completely
different OSes. When asking for help you need to be clear as to whether
you have WinMo or WinPhone because things are different on each.

Sorry, perhaps i didnt explain correctly, when i mentioned about windows
settnig all the same,
what i ment to say was they are the same if on any type of phone for the
same version, as in my case where i had a XDA running 6.1 and now HD2
running 6.5, the layout and the settings used where the same.

As im a novice (sorry), i dont know what WinMo or Winphone is? - i only
know that i have windows mobile 6..5 running on my phone.

Thanks
Jack

Just for more info, this settings setup guide is what I am after for
TalkMobile,
http://www.ccsleeds.co.uk/kb/phones/...e_5_device.pdf

I have tried substituting the vodafone ones for talkmobile but no joy.

I still think the error is nore around the setup of the wapMMS area, but
cannot pinpoint it.

Ive also read some forums ( and if you look on vodafone ), you need to have
the settng unlocked for windows users, is this the same for talkmobile?

If you haven't already got the user manual for your handset, you can
download it here <http://www.htc.com/uk/help/htc-hd2/#user-guide>.

There's a gotcha that got me the first time I tried to send an MMS
message, and which gave me exactly those error messages on my Android
phone. I had to 'switch on' "Mobile Internet" first (I usually have
that 'turned off' when I'm not actively using it, to save battery
power).

Just a thought.
