I think I will preorder a Jolla phone for 100€ at the end of the month, I have yet to use an android gadget that isn't totally ugly and counterintuitiv to use. They make me totally mad within minutes. What I saw of Sailfish until now pleases my eye and makes sense from a usability point of view. I also hope they will have a QWERTZ keyboard as Other Half.

Subject: linux telefony

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Anybody see a stock linux package for making

 voice calls through a GSM modem ?

 

(for transforming a linux tablet with gsm modem into a telephone!)

 

I see quite a few  efforts (after trying Wammu-Gammu )

 but nothing we can just compile configure  just yet.

 

The android stuff seems out of reach

 and the ubuntu touch is still vaporware,

 and everything I have seen is just not right yet.

Open-moko had a kernel for that, one for sending and one for receiving....

I have 3 n900's Maemo and the telefony is all closed source. (Nokia was a good fit for M$...)

Meego was such a fustercluck I never even looked, it was painful to visit.

Maybe I will revisit that cesspool now that you remind me.

That said, I thought the telefony there was supposed to be all locked

 down as well, as planned from the gitgo but will check up on it. thanks.

That seems to be the general deal across the board,

 it appears that every effort to make telefony in linux starts

 with borking a perfectly good linux kernel

 to fit whatever their design tangent is.

I know the linux kernel has some latent issues,

 but surely there must be a better way.

nowadays mobiles are computers attached to modems.

the dialer app is talking at to that modem. So it can't be that hard afterall

OpenMoko is still alive? Wikipedophilia suggests that it was "beaten down by the recession" but it seems more sensible that anyone who wanted a Linux Phone now has one in the form of Android.

For those of you in the US ... if you're not using T-Mobile, you should be.

I spent my morning commute on the phone with T-Mo customer service. I asked them to review my bill and determine whether a new plan would be a better value.

At the end of the call, my monthly bill was reduced by $35 and I got data added to my son's line.

My only problem with T-Mobile is that I enjoy having reception where I live (TX).

AT&T and Verizon are the carriers of choice here. I went with AT&T because at the time they were the only ones with iPhone when I switched from Sprint (with my Treo, on which I had rather limited service). I have stayed with AT&T because VZ iPhones still are not able to handle voice and internet at the same time.

...and I usually have reception. Usually.

I would agree, T-Mobile's problem is reception. My sister had T-Mobile in Indiana and she probably had
it in Atlanta, here she has no coverage.

I evaluated T-Mobile in the mid 2000's and found their network unusable.  Then I looked at them again in 2009 and was very pleased with the improvement.  They've been good, and they're getting better.  When the sale of T-Mobile to AT&T fell through, AT&T had to pay them $4 billion and hand over a bunch of spectrum as a penalty.  They used that money and bandwidth to build an LTE network.

Well, T-Mobile has the other problem of having nearly completely shitty customer service. Pray you never have to work with them to resolve a problem. They will lie to you, shift you to others, and otherwise try to get you off the phone so they don't actually have to solve your problem.

I no longer wished to have a contract plan last year, so I bought a
cheap phone at Wal-Mart with a prepaid misanthrope special plan:
unlimited data, unlimited text, 100 minutes for $30 per month. (I have
used all of my minutes only once. Usually, I average about 20.)

I called T-Mobile to try to port my phone over from our existing plan to
the new prepaid plan. I spoke to 7 people in 45 minutes. The long and
short of it was that I could port my number, but it would take 60 days,
during which time I would need to pay for both services.

I have a new phone number.

What nonsense. When I left Sprint for AT&T I ported my number. Took less than 24 hours. Of course I didn't tell Sprint. I left, unannounced, in mid-month and just told AT&T to port the number, which they did.

Then Sprint tried to hit me with an Early Termination Fee. I told them to shove *that* up their corporate ass and also if they expected to get a single cent out of me, they had my address and were **very** welcome to sue. I also told them the cross-complaint ([2, should they sue, would be for fraud and breach of contract since they had seriously oversold their network and could no longer provide me with the service for which I had contracted.

Never heard another word!!

Sad to hear that y'all had trouble with T-Mobile. My experience has been nothing but sunshine and rainbows.

Well, that's good. Just don't have any problems with them, and you'll be okay. The moment anything goes wrong and you need their help, they won't be there to help you.

The funny thing was, when I switched TO T-Mobile from Verizon, porting my number was easy and quick. Porting it from the contract plan to prepaid WITHIN T-Mobile was just about impossible.

Otherwise, we have no complaints. That's the GSM provider which gives us the best service in our area.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]


I got Citadel running on my Raspberry Pi. I want to run Citadel as a stand-alone service without any external internet connection.

The Raspberry is 192.168.1.10 on my wireless router 192.168.1.1

I can successfully use Wi-Fi to log in with my laptop, but not with an iPhone or a phone running Android.
 
The iPhone hangs up at the first login screen: Welcome to Citadel Server!
 
The Log in button on that screen is not functional.
 
This seems like a JavaScript issue. What can be done?
