    “Home Screen” within System Services using ridiculous quantities of data

    iPhone 15 iOS 17.5.1 I haven’t changed anything on the phone lately in terms of widgets - the only thing I’m aware of is an iOS update. This data has all been consumed from an eSIM I’m using when travelling overseas and I can’t understand what has suddenly gone wrong. It is definitely the Home...

    “Home Screen” within System Services using ridiculous quantities of data

    Does anybody know what would cause Home Screen within system services on an iPhone to consume ludicrous amounts of data? This has never happened to me before, but it has used something like 2GB in a couple of days and I (1) have no idea how to prevent this (2) have no idea what it could possibly...

    Strange ringing tones…

    Has anybody else noticed that the tone generated whilst a mobile call is ringing has changed to the long, single sound that one normally associates with continental Europe / the USA? This seems to be somewhat random, although it does seem to be consistent if calling Telkom mobile from Telkom...

    Telkom is not a government department - it’s a listed company.

    Looking for a VoIP service provider (except Switch Telecom)

    Does anybody know whether it is only Telkom that offers OpenServe’s landline over fibre service, through which you can plug an analogue phone directly into the fibre ONT and they sort out the SIP gateway etc on the back-end? Vox and others can provide VoIP - but seemingly only if you plug VoIP...

    Looking for a VoIP service provider (except Switch Telecom)

    Vox is very cost-effective in my opinion, with unlimited calls within SA for around R171/month.

    How do you recharge your electricity when the power is already down?

    The whole point is that it is not wireless technology. That’s the issue. It needs a neutral wire (not through an inverter) to send the signal to the main meter box in the street. It is an idiotic design and mine does not manage to communicate even with brand new batteries so I have to rely on...

    Checkers Sixty60 app data usage?

    Has anybody else noticed that the Checkers Sixty60 app consumes vast amounts of data - out of all proportion to the functionality it provides?

    VodaCom…charging like it’s 1995

    Does anybody know why VodaCom still charge for caller ID and itemised billing like these are some sort of newfangled inventions? Is it just because they can? It’s very 1995 and such a hassle to try to get them to remove it from contracts…I have to be honest, I find it quite dishonest when these...

    Why would Afrihost give away data every month? A loss-leader?

    Best option for a prepaid SIM for a smart switch?

    Thanks - data lasts 60 days? So I would top up every 2 months at a minimum?

    Best option for a prepaid SIM for a smart switch?

    I’m trying to come up with the best option for a prepaid data SIM for a smart switch that is out of reach of WiFi even with repeaters. I have no idea how much data it will consume and don’t want to be locked in to a contract. I was thinking of the Capitec SIM - data is R45/GB prepaid, and never...

    Small inverter / UPS backfeed to input?

    Thanks - I thought the point of a balancer between two 12/13V units in series making up a 24/26V system was that it needed to be kept in place permanently to balance the voltages?
