I ended up putting a complaint in email from to the provider before. I asked for 4 things 1. 2. 4. kept me as a customer. 3 (was let me out of the contract.) If they fail to do the 1. 2. 4. I'll be putting in a tio complaint. 1. was fix the network 2. was give me a new Micro sim for my phone 4. was give me 50% off the remaining contract bills. Which is 21 months left.
So I got a reply from them earlier via email telling them I'll take them to the tio does get action lol. They get fined 400$ per complaint sent to the tio about them.
Now they are blaming my iPhone. I know how to use it I think. Must be a few faulty ones others have listed the same thing. 5 bars with no data. I experience that at my grandma's house. I really should have put I experience the same coverage on my wireless USB stick. I tried to watch the Zelda marathon from you guys over there? Was a marathon from you guys. Constantly buffered I gave up. I then attempted to load firefoxlive. It said it was running at 400kbit not the required 600kbit.
Its meant to run android 2.2 but I don't feel as it does. Everything is buggy and the app store program isn't the actual android app store but some Chinese thing. The actual store shows thousands of apps the app shows I dunno 20?
Youtube app doesn't work at all. Neither does its updates. Seems strange that google wouldn't like fix that being as they own android.
So I think I was scammed out of money by the website. Using its web browser you are able to watch youtube videos but there is no scroll support basically you scroll though the text.
Also seems it hates wireless internet. Kept telling me I was out of range. According to my iPhone the range for my wireless is 4 houses. So being in the same room as my router really should work.
I haven't tried playing music on it. If that works thats all it will be good for. Maybe I'll buy another FM adaptor so dad can use it to play music in the car. Other then that it really doesn't have any use.
Edit: they are sending out a coupon for me to return the item and are issuing me with a refund.
By sending they mean emailing me. How in cookies am I meant to print out a label when I don't own a printer?

There is a library printer but they are always booked out.
I ended up just writing it out. Can't see how different it is sure they will complain though. You needed the label because of whatever reason. It was posted last night so provided it doesn't get lost they should get it tomorrow. Hopefully then I'm able to ask for a full refund on Monday and have the money back on Friday.
Quite interesting that they say Optus and Telstra are nearly the same where I live. I somehow doubt it. Also don't say how it was tested other then with a iphone. I do still plan on getting a telstra sim today. I only found that story by accident. Thing is Telstra have said 3g standard is being switched off next year and are using the 850mhz service. Does seem funny that the story says optus are going to be upgrading the network where I live. They never told me they where when I asked them Maybe that's why the sim card is taking so long lol. Either way provided Telstra works. During my tests then I shall be leaving optus's network by the end of the year. 128kbit radio stream to constantly work really is all I ask data wise.

This really isn't a rant I just couldn't be stuffed making a new thread.
I was just watching storm chasers which I shouldn't have been I admit.
The April 27th storms holly cow. I couldn't get over that. I read about it online and watched tornado outbreak 2011. But watching pretty well everything that happened that say was like well I don't know what.
After I have paid off my iphone I'm thinking of doing a $ for $ mini-marathon by myself to do some fund raising for the affected area's of Tuscaloosa. Storm chasers said it will be a years thing to repair the towns and that.
Going on a storm chasing trip is pretty much the only reason why I want to visit the US. I don't know where anything is. I really don't know if I could handle if something like that happened while I was there. The tornado type thing that I had in January scared me first time I ever agreed with the dog about being scared over a storm.
As you can see I deleted my posts regarding to streaming and my event idea. As I stole someone's idea without realising it. Only names I could come up with were a rip off of someone else's. Turns out there was another story I didn't know and that people got cheesed over. So it was 2x as much cheese.
I believe I did the right thing and said hey do you have a problem if I call myself this? If they said no that's fine its peachy I would have done it. If they said no I would rather you didn't as it's too close to ours. Id go back to the drawing board. This was the reason in asking. I was told to be original I was then instantly un-followed and well ignored after that. I don't believe they blocked me but I guess they may have. Twitter still said I was following them. Anyway I thought why bother and deleted every tweet I sent to them unfollowed all related accounts to them then blocked the ones that followed me.
I then spent a hour deleting my 2 computers history.
In the 7 years I have had internet access I have never once thought of a username that was well original. When I started using penguincat in wow I had people telling me random things thinking I was someone else.I then had the guy who the people thought I was ask me if I could delete my character and rename it something else.
To me originality on the internet died long ago. There are how many users? unless you call your self 2rghklfasd,bngrkrlfbmgjewgnkebergjkwvbenvkdsfgjei24rbebrufdeivuerb-salad chances are someone already has it. So I really don't understand how they can say be original and do that they did over it. The message I replied with was something like ok I have never been able to think of something original before. I was already ignored before that I guess.
The groups idea that I appear to have stolen had the same name except for a - to separate the 2 words. Which apparently is evil and not allowed to be talked about on the non - groups forum. Maybe they got peed off over that. I don't know every gaming group on the internet. I've only been watching marathons since march/april.
Now for part b. Why do I always bring out the hate in people? I don't intentionally go out to get people to hate me. This guy is well liked and is friendly to everyone. (so he says) I was thinking maybe send him a email and see if I get a reply pretty hard to send a message on twitter as 140 characters minus the persons username is hard. I'm not going to say be my friend again more like what exactly happened? how did I pee you off and sorry I did.
Other things like Local gaming groups from my city one guy wanted me to be bashed up. On a gaming trip he organised which was nice of him. Before dinner he asked does anyone know how to get back to the city from here? No one knew so I went off and found out. After dinner I said you need to get the x bus back to the train station busses are every 40mins now. He mumbled something then walked off and ended up wasting 5$ on a shopping centre internet machine which said the exact same as what I told him. Next trip he would glare at me for mins at a time. He was giving out game codes went no where near me. Only thing I could think of was that he thought I was going to steal his GF or something. She was really nice to me for some reason.
I'm now at the stage thinking would I be better off if I disconnect the internet? Just buy a heap of stream games before getting it Dc'ed or just learn to like the ones that I have lol.
I don't think I would disconnect my internet over that. First off, over the stream name issue, if you didn't already create a site with that name and start a Ustream page then why would they be mad?
Also, as for the local gaming guy, it seemed like he had no reason to be mad at you, unless you did something. Either way, I wouldn't get rid of my internet over a couple of people I couldn't care about. Just move on from it and don't deal with them.
Plus, if you got rid of your internet you wouldn't be able to watch our marathons or go on our forums!
My ustream channel page is still penguincat-gaming username is still penguincat. justintv is still penguincat25 and no channel unless they use your name even then its penguincat25.
All I did was ask if he thought it was ok for me to use that name before I did it. If I made teammountaincandystore.something I would have asked you as well as the team mountain khakis people. As well as anyone else. They were the only 2 I found when I kept spelling mountain wrong one day and ISP site assist told asked me what I was looking for.
Maybe he thought I did make it I was just thinking about it before and twitter 140character limit most likely made out that I did. Why can't twitter be 200 characters Only thing I could come up with he used the hate of the group who stole his name and put a - in between it. Who actually does what I had suggested which was a big boo boo. Chances are he saw the idea in the email I sent to him a week ago and this made him somewhat cranky at me. and the above thing thought ok bye bye.
A hour ago I thought of a better name I could use. I checked google no one used it. Checked to see if anyone had any of the domain versions nope its all available. Checked to see the likely used names nope all free. I will check again as I really doubt people wouldn't have used it at a point. Not sure If I need or want it now anyway though.
If the problem I'm having with ustream keeps up I doubt Id be able to watch any marathons you do anyway.
Yeah twitch tv is justin.tv's gaming broadcast arm. Its so when/if the anti gaming streaming law thing happens they aren't forced to close down justintv as a whole but just twitch tv. So some thing I read said anyway no idea if that's correct or not.
I just hope justintv fixes there darn iPhone app. "Opps justin.tv is overloaded please try another channel" message is kinda annoying. Also the sound randomly goes to like a badly turned radio that's underneath a pillow quality only way to get a decent quality is to close the app and reopen it. Which you get the opps message 8 times before it works. Specially since I paid 10.49$ for it and still have to put up with ads. (2 weeks after I bought it it dropped to 5.49$.)
But I was pondering last night do I even need the site now? I'm far from being popular enough to have multiple charities. (I had 2 viewers 1 of which was me.) So a regular page on ustream or whatever should be enough for now.
