    Best VoIP providers from Europe to SA

    I am based in Europe but would like a South African telephone presence to be able to make and receive calls in SA. Almost all the VoIP services I have tried are our quality probably due to latency issues and perhaps the link between SA and Europe. I have tried Telkom VOWiFi, Skype and now...

    Is Rain still operational

    @"D" “If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.” there's something to that! Not sure about the euphoria but glad I was able to move forward. Hopefully some of the others were helped too. Wishing Rain well, one of the better offerings. Still a long way from where we should be for...

    Is Rain still operational

    Update: Rain did get hold of me, thank you. I am up and running having Rica'd. The process is not completely obvious for those trying to Rica online. When you select the Rica process you will first need to select a product at the end of which you acknowledge that you need to still Rica. The...

    Is Rain still operational

    I am quite frustrated with Rain and wondering if they are still out there. Of course COVID is probably to blame as it is for just about everything that does not work in SA.:eek: A month ago I got a SIM card from Clicks and it says that you can RICA via their website rain.co.za The website RICA...

    Aramex Service at Pick and Pay working?

    I suggest check their website first. They included some detail on what services are currently working. It was a bit contradictory but should hopefully contain the current status of the service

    Aramex Service at Pick and Pay working?

    Thanks for the reply and reminding me I need to update my post. My package was picked up on the Monday afternoon and delivered overnight on Tuesday. The Friday collection did not happen and apparently they do not work on the weekend. I have noticed that the service has closed at one Pick and...

    Aramex Service at Pick and Pay working?

    Does anyone know if the Aramex Service at Pick and Pay is actually working? I sent a package on Friday morning, they happily took my money and there were no indications of a problem in the service. Their website also indicates that the service is functioning, refer below. Their app does not...

    Telkom Mobile VoLTE capable?

    I'm prepaid in Germany and able to use VO WiFi from here. Only one provider in Germany supports prepaid as far as I know. Ironically I'm postpaid telkom and struggling :) Hopefully by the end of the shutdown.

    Telkom Mobile VoLTE capable?

    I just talked to someone at Telkom via the very slooow Chat facility. My Xiomi Mi9 is not yet supported by Telkom. This seems strange because it is supported by my other Network Provider. I would have thought that VOLTE/ VOWiFi are covered by GSM standards so either the device supports it or...

    Telkom Mobile VoLTE capable?

    No not yet although I am back in SA and have tried to get it activated via the online Telkom message system. Their help lines seem to have longer queues than normal. Also messages from Telkom seem imply that this sort of problem will only be dealt with after the lockdown. That said it gets...

    Telkom Mobile VoLTE capable?

    @easydevsa Telkom does seem to activate some people automatically and others need to apply. I'm in the same boat trying to get activation. Only problem is I'm in Germany currently (self isolating :). I sent a help request via the online portal but heard nothing yet. I'm back in S.A. next week so...

    Telkom Mobile VoLTE capable?

    Vodacom and MTN(?) disable functionality that doesn't support their market model e.g. Dual SIM. Is this one of those?

    Telkom Mobile VoLTE capable?

    Just saw your post and have just bought a Xiaomi. I used the following codes to activate these services (https://www.zdnet.de/88365493/xiaomi-smartphones-volte-und-vowifi-unter-miui-10-einschalten/) VoLTE: *#*#86583#*#* VoWiFi calls: *#*#869434#*#* These settings seem to be deactivated by...

    Do any android dual LTE phones support VOWiFi on one SIM using data from the other

    Thanks @deweyzeph and @Sayf777 what I am looking for is VO2ndSIMdata for lack of a better description. It uses the VOWiFi type functionality of the one SIM but uses the data from the second SIM rather than actual WiFi. So yes while you are absolutely correct you can't connect to your own...
