Within Canada where there's network coverage, you can use Speakout's UMB without expecting any extra charges.

(As far as I know, the big three don't slap on any extra charges for data usage if you go outside your local calling area.)
Perfect. Thanks a lot.

I used the tethering feature, making the Android a wifi hotspot and connect my laptop to it. The hotel I was at was charging $10 per 24hr.
Worked great for what I wanted to do.

Just needed to setup the proxy setting in my laptop browser to enable it.
Are the same proxy settings you input in the phone?



Also, has anyone used VOIP and had it work with UMB through the proxy?

Anyone know if skype through the data connection works. If so this would be half VOIP (outbound only).

I did get skype to work on both wifi and data. I called skype to skype (i.e. not skypeout).

Is the official gingerbread 2.3.3 update out now? I haven't installed any of the LG updater stuff but i heard that it is available. I guess there's probably a cd in my box with the LG updater. i'll have to go check that out.

Confirmed, skype works over data.

Does anyone have issues with the stock Email app? It needs to connect to ports 993 (imap) and 465 (smtp), but neither works with the proxy. Gmail works as mentioned before.

So would this work with any phone? For $37.50 a month for unlimited data, unlimited texts and 300 anytime (just local or local and long distance minutes)

I want to get a sim and try this with my SGSII. If it works, goodbye rogers.

Got Autoproxy working with one problem: when the phone goes to sleep it loses the connection and then I get the error message: Failed to start proxy.sh ([: permission denied 1307972722.812063 redsocks.c:699 redsocks_init_instance(…)bind Address already in use)

It works again if I reboot the phone but I have tried turning Autoproxy on and off and it still won't connect until the phone is rebooted.
Has anyone else had this problem?

When it is working I can use the following apps:

youtube
market
gasbuddy
ebuddy
google reader
listen
tunein radio
navigation
hotspot

No luck as others with gtalk and nettalk

Is there a way to have Speakout charge your credit card on a monthly basis? I find it annoying having to find a 7-11 store just to buy the prepaid vouchers.

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of a prepaid service?

Not really. You'll find that many prepaid providers offer an auto top-off feature and you can have your credit card charged so that you won't have to worry about it before your prepaid credit expires.

I got this reply on the 30th March when I asked whether they were planning on adding that service to their website:
we are working feverishly on developing an ecommerce functionality for our web site for launch in the next 60 – 90 days.

Thanks for the info. This makes sense because both PC Mobile and Petro Canada have this option.

I need some help here. Just got the Motorola Spice that runs Android 2.1 It's telling me I need "iptables" in order for autoproxy to work. I've tried entering some command lines with terminal emulator I found online but no progress so far. Tethering apps do not work either.

Anybody else with Android 2.1 had such issues when trying to install autoproxy?
