IDNet Help / Re: IDNet mobile?
« Last post by Simon on Jan 15, 2021, 21:30:50 »
Just had a very quick read through, and the rulings seem to be centred around making SIM cards available to use in other devices, "so basically, you should be free to use any SIM in any device that you want to".  I've not seen anything that says data-only SIM cards are banned, or indeed, anything that says that a provider must include a phone service with it's data SIMs.  I assume these are designed to be used with Dual-SIM devices, so IDNet would provide the data, and you would stick to your usual mobile operator for phone services?

Likewise, I could be misreading things, but I wouldn't have thought IDNet would have overlooked any Ofcom rulings.

Don't forget these are Mobile Data SIMS - not a full mobile service.

It was my understanding the OfCom have changed the rules and mobile companies are now barred from selling data-only sims.  All sims have to have full access to all services.  Check out https://forums.thinkbroadband.com/mobilebroadband/t/4645263-bt-unlimited-4g-limit.html which includes a link to https://kenstechtips.com/index.php/sim-cards-for-your-tablet-dongle-router-or-iot-device.

To quote the kenstechtips article "This follows an Ofcom ruling on net neutrality in 2018 which said that mobile networks shouldn’t discriminate based on the type of device and based on the equipment you’re using to access their network."

Of course open to correction if I'm misreading things.

I noticed this ands checked my MTU, it was all setup, pC, Router and Modem at 1500 and worked at that under my foremer ISP. Its now 1460 as well. I also will try support but it does rather look rather than the claimes of no caps there are some in place.

Windows News & Discussion / Re: Problems sending attachments
« Last post by Den on Jan 09, 2021, 16:03:36 »
This morning I uninstalled Kaspersky and the problem went away. Amazingly after I completed the un-installation my copy of "Computer Action" arrived and there in the readers letters was someone who had the same problem and had found a way of altering the settings in Kaspersky to cure it.

Once again I have un-installed Kaspersky but this time I think I will leave it off. I'm going to run Windows Security and see how I get on but that fails I will install the BT Version of Mcafee as it's included in my contract.

I spent 90mins on the phone and computer today with Microsoft Office 365. They were very helpful and changed a lot of settings within Outlook.

When we finished I thought all was well but I can't forward invoices from Quickbooks Desktop to email them and although most attachments now open some did not.

I am going to try Quickbooks support tomorrow and if that does not work I'm going to uninstall Kaspersky as I've read on the web that this can cause the problem sometimes.

I have also done a complete reinstall of Microsoft 365 Office.   :facepalm:

I'm now finding that attachments in incoming emails will not open unless they are in Word. Received an invoice today, could not open it in Outlook but could with Mailbird.   :facepalm:

Just checked again and the attachments are not coming through in Outlook as a pdf file but they are in Windows Mail and Mailbird. HELP
