motorola moto or xiaomi mi ? 3, 4, 5 or more cameras ? notch or notchless (zeronotch) ?

maybe its easiest to buy by price

Lost your mobile ? then just recover your number over the web !

If you are on giffgaff or VectoneMobile then you can disable / ‘recover’ / switch your number over the web if you have a backup SIM . Just login to your mobile networks web portal then navigate to UPDATE MY SIM your old SIM can be shutdown and number transferred to your new SIM.

VectoneMobile

BUT DO NOT FORGET YOUR WEB PASSWORD since password resets are only SMS’d to your OLD / LOST mobile !

VectoneMobile USSD short codes

  • *102# = remaining call credit

vectone mobile payg sim and huawei honor phones

i seem to have come across a bizarre bug with vectone mobile payg sims and a Huawei HONOR  KIW-L21 phone

first it has 2 sim slots and if you read the small print slot 1 only runs 2G and slot 2 can run 2G/3G/4G

so what i think happened is i put my vectone sim in slot 1 first which seems to have disabled data on the HONOR phone (and make tethering invisible when it is inserted into an iphone) but everything works fine when i put it in a MI

workaround

  • my primary giffgaff sim in my HONOR
  • my backup giffgaff sim is in my IPHONE
  • my vectone sim is in my MI

 

vectone mobile deals & problems

the latest vectone mobile deal is 30G for £10 which is comparable to giffgaffs 40G for £20 however there are a couple of bugs

  • NO DATA on a HONOR KIW-L21
  • Vectone X app errors on a a HONOR KIW-L2 and an IPHONE

so will have to stick with giffgaff for the time being

FYI

  • giffgaff MVNO runs on O2
  • vectone MVNO runs on EE

2G, 3G, 4G and 5G users / sq km

i wonder what figures are for 2G, 3G, 4G in users/sq km since 5G claims to able to handle 1M users/km which is impressive

Ericsson are predicting that 1.5 billion users – 40 per cent of the global population coverage – will have access to a 5G network by 2024.

A 5G network supports ultra-high-speed data rates of up to 10 Gbps, low latency or delay and can cope with up to a million devices per square kilometer. With 5G, you can download a typical high-definition movie in under 40 seconds, as opposed to more than seven minutes with 4G.

great #mktg by @giffgaff

for the last two months @giffgaff have given me an extra 1G free when i overran and the mktg ploy works i was orig on £8, then £10 and now the £20 for 30G deal

i mean works for them 🙂 im now paying £12 a month extra maybe its time to switch to @superdrug mobile or @vectone mobile £10 for 30G
