The wifi calling seemed trash. :P So I made sure to turn off wifi when phoning.  :laugh:

Apparently one should not try to restore settings from previous versions via the Backup/Restore process - which is one useful bit of info!

Hopefully all will go well :slap:

That's an even better idea!
It would be if not for the fact that I've had it while and I'd lose rather a lot! It's definitely not a scam either as Google have started doing this. I checked. I decided to go creative with it instead. And it's only the person who set it up with the first account that can remove it. I can see why, but it is a bit of a bind.

I have Billion 8800NL R2 firmware update 2.52.d1 which is pretty long in the tooth.

With all the current brouhaha about vulnerabilities I do not know whether I should be updating the firmware.

Anyone got any advice please?

First advice would be to go to the Billion Website (http://www.billion.uk.com/esupport/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/428/119/latest-bipac-8800nl-r2-firmware-252d15) and download the latest firmware (v2.52.d15).  If you haven't updated your router firmware before, instructions can be found at http://www.billion.uk.com/esupport/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/377/106/how-to-perform-firmware-upgrade-on-bipac-78xx-and-88xx--series,

I would never use anyone's real birthdate for something like this. I think it's a security issue.

I agree, it is a security issue and without knowing all the details it might even be a scam. Personally I would reset the phone to its factory defaults and start over.

Can you not remove the previous user's account from the phone?

I don't blame you at all.  But would it not be easier to ask your relative for their birth date?  Or perhaps another member of the family who knows it.   :angel:
