PAYG: How do I check my balance?

To check your balance use Hotkey 2 or key *#10# then press the call button and your calltime balance will be shown on your display.

Alternatively dial 4444 FREE from your mobile to hear your balance and to top-up.

You need at least 1 minute of calltime credit to make a call. When your calltime falls too low, you'll get messages indicating you're nearly out of credit until you're finally diverted to the O2 top-up line.

Email Portal - Blackberry

By default the O2/RIM portal will use the email address as the username for the email account. This is fine unless your system needs a username that does not match the email address. To When setting up a new email address put in an incorrect email address so that set will fail. This failure will result in you being offered advanced set up options, amongst which is the option to specify a username.

Also, you may need to check the nameservers...

# nano /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 82.132.136.102
nameserver 82.132.136.103

And your kernel routing table...

# route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
10.64.64.64     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.255 UH    0      0        0 ppp0
127.0.0.0       127.0.0.1       255.0.0.0       UG    0      0        0 lo

Acer Aspire One / Linpus Linux

Run Live Update, download all available packages, and then reboot.

Install 2 new packages...

yum install gnome-ppp libusb

Plug in the USB Modem... the File Manager window will appear.

Unmount (eject) the new USB drive and then close this window.

Download the USB ModeSwitch software and config file...

wget http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/usb_modeswitch-0.9.7.tar.bz2
wget http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/usb_modeswitch.conf

Copy the config file to the /etc directory...

cp usb_modeswitch.conf /etc/

Check which USB id (Vendor and Product) the modem has...

lsusb

It should say something like...

ID 12d1:1003 Huawei E220 3G Modem

Untar the file and change into its directory, then run the following command using the Vendor and Product values from above...

./usb_modeswitch -v 0x12d1 -p 0x1003 -H 1

Create a .wvdial.conf file for the user who will be dialing (either /root/.wvdial.conf or /home/user/.wvdial.conf) and add / edit the following lines...

Phone = *99#
Username = o2web
Password = password

Then run the Gnome PPP program to connect...

gnome-ppp

Enter the password again in the box and press the Connect button. Be patient, it will take a while - but you should see the following lines...

GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> Using interface ppp0
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> local IP address 10.xx.xx.xx
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> remote IP address 10.64.64.64
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> primary DNS address 82.132.136.102
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> secondary DNS address 82.132.136.103

Now, you will have to fix the kernel routing table...

route add -net 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 gateway 127.0.0.1
route del -net 0.0.0.0
route add default gateway 10.64.64.64
route -n

Now you test it...

ping www.google.co.uk

Enjoy!

DNS Name Servers

If you have problems, check your /etc/resolv.conf file has these lines...

nameserver 82.132.136.102
nameserver 82.132.136.103
