    Is Afrihost now officially useless?

    I originally signed up with Afrihost for home Internet to insulate me from Telkom but Telkom got so bad that I switched to another ISP who provided a direct wireless link (no fibre where I live). Now I just use Afrihost for my cell phones because I would rather deal with them than MTN or one of...

    Calling 10111 for help is a waste of time – SA police officers

    If only there was some agency the police could use to chase after people who vandalised and stole their stuff. Oh, wait.

    phone keeps reverting to MTN APN

    APN type is set that way but it still reverts. Giving up on Afrihost and switching to another provider.

    phone keeps reverting to MTN APN

    A few hours after resetting it suddenly it is working. Unless I can consistently be sure it works, I will have to consider shifting it to another service.

    phone keeps reverting to MTN APN

    One thing I didn’t try. It’s a dual-SIM device. Could switching to the other SIM socket make a difference?

    phone keeps reverting to MTN APN

    I reset the device and put the Afrihost APN details in again. And it stlll reports as being on the wrong network. It worked before; how could this be broken now? Any ideas?

    phone keeps reverting to MTN APN

    I have the phone and the settings look right – yet if I make sure WiFi is off so it is definitely on the cell network, the Afrihost APN checker reports it as wrong. By format the device I presume you mean erase and recover user data?

    phone keeps reverting to MTN APN

    I will try to retrieve the phone from the employee and report back if I can fix it. Unfortunately the problem only seems to surface when I am not near the phone.

    phone keeps reverting to MTN APN

    As far as I know I did that (back in June 2017). The issue is that it keeps flipping back to the MTN settings, which I can’t delete or remove. The issue has become more severe now the phone is being used more out of the office (where there is a computer and WiFi). Afrihost have been unable to...

    phone keeps reverting to MTN APN

    Is this something I can do now after the phone has been on Afrihost for a fair amount of time?

    Any fix? Or should I literally flush the phone?:(

    phone keeps reverting to MTN APN

    I have a Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace Neo (2016) that I bought from takealot.com and the MTN SIM I bought from the local MTN shop keeps reverting to the MTN APN setting, which I can’t delete or edit. I put the same SIM in an iPhone and it didn’t have the problem. I tried turning off auto updates in...

    good tuner - amp fpr LG digital TV, DSTV

    My old JVC tuner-amp is starting to give up the ghost and it would be nice to get something that plays nice with all my equipment. I have a reasonably new LG TV with 2x HDMI as well as the usual analogue inputs. I also have a PlayStation, Mac and iPod that connect to all this. What I would...

    iMac struggles with WiFi

    I have a reasonably new iMac that I bought in Australia about a year back before moving back to SA and it really battles with WiFi. I thought the Linksys box I was given here may be faulty so I swapped it out for a Billion (both ADSL + ethernet + WiFi), and it's no better. I'm sitting right next...

    iPod and Hyundai i30

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum because it could also be a car issue but my Hyundai i30 has suddenly stopped recognising my iPod (4th generation; according to the manual it should work), after it worked fine for months. Possibly a connected issue: the FM radio had weird issues while...
