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.

Subject: mobile devices and Citadel

[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?

We will continue to improve the mobile experience of Citadel/Webcit, but this is a longterm goal which needs to be achieved with a lot of work under the hood. We "recently" changed lots of optical parts, but improving the overall experience is a constant process.

Android now approaching 80% worldwide market share.

[ http://tinyurl.com/lzglj9w ]

or the fun-to-read version: [ http://tinyurl.com/kqbjcxg ]

Set aside the relative merits of Apple and Google for a moment, and simply relish in the indisputably wonderful fact that there is a clear leader here, and it is NOT Micro$oft!

This is good.


In other news, I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy S2 to Android 4.2 "Jellybean" by way of Cyanogenmod 10.1.2 yesterday. Soooo much more cool looking than the stock OS. It looks like a phone from this year instead of one from two years ago. It's got a new lease on life!

dothbard script:

"thats been fixed with citadel 8.17"

Perhaps my Android is too old.  LG Optimus V LG670  Android Version 2.2.2. build 2V5.41C0E845 SW Vers VM6770ZV5.

Anyway, an attempt to log into uncensored.citadel.org  (Citadel 8.20) by tapping the login entry block results in the login block changing color (correct), a brief

flash of the Android's keyboard, then the display returns to a much larger read-only screen with the prompt "You must be logged in to access this page."

e.g. There is no way to log into Citadel (or enter text) from this Android.  I have managed to tease through the entry process, and have attempted to generate a new email message, but there is absolutely no way to enter text in the message area.  The Android keyboard cannot be triggered.

This inability to enter data looks similar to the issue in v8.14

Else a great program!  Look forward to running Citadel on a Raspberry PI.

A postscript.  A switch from using the native Android browser to Opera mini 5 beta, the only version that will run on this Android resulted in the ability to log in.  An attempt to generate an email was not successful.  The "TO:  FROM: CC: SUBJECT: prompts were overwritten by the header block (title and menu options), in fact the menu options were truncated.  Moving past that section, the attempt to enter message information was still not possible due to an inability to trigger the virtual Android keyboard in the message area of the email (uncensored.citadel.org/post).  I attempted to send the (blank) message anyway, which seems to be working, as I received the alert "Refusing to post empty message"

Keep up the good work!

I am sorry, the structure of the page is from a non-mobile era. I am currently working to change this, please stay tuned.

a quick google for tinymce brought this:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8176136/tinymce-or-other-wysiwyg-editors-for-mobile-devices

and in special this:

http://caniuse.com/contenteditable

so it seems you need bleeding edge...

tinymce.com/tryit/full.php

does this work for your browser?

hopefully some of the_mgt s work will also improve the browsing situation.

I am still opting for ckeditor instead of tinymce, since it does the breaking of blockquotes better (that is, if we stop wrapping the blockquotes into extra divs...)

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

Unfortunately, neither tinymce nor ckeditor worked correctly through the native Android 2.2 browser.  Field entry in the cdeditor demo seemed ok, but full-screen editing in either browser did not trigger the pop-up keyboard, or permit editing.  The cdedtor 'behavior' demos were especially disappointing. In all cases, the entire demo screen (banners and content) simply did not display.

The Android 2.2 OS is listed as not supported in the contenteditable attribute list.  Perhaps it is time to look for a newer smartphone, although this model (LG-Optimus V) is still offered for sale as a new product by Virgin mobile.  I haven't tried the POP/SMTP email app yet, and due to the setup required, use of that resource is a bit more complicated for users, but perhaps that is the best workaround for now.

Appreciate the interest!

Bill
