I've downloaded the Smart Talk app to my phone, received the e_mails and letters confirming my phone number(mobile) is registered. Checked on-line and it shows me there.
Tried to make a couple of calls while " out and about ", no success, got error message on phone with a prompt to go to FAQ's.
Tried " at home" with the same result. ( via 192.168.1.x phone connects automatically when in range )
Looked for btwifi etc and couldn't see it, or them.
Checked my hub and discovered that BT WiFi wasn't " switched on" so clicked on the check status link and found that I was registered and had used some minutes.
Here's the question:
How do I get this service to work ???? ( and not using the " disconnect everything and restart " option..
System shows I am registered so I don't want to attempt to register again and confuse it even more.
I can't "switch on" BT WiFi at my hub unless I register.
Before registering for Smart Talk I BT WiFi was switched on in my hub.
if you are at home and connected to your home wifi then if you open the smarttalk app then select one of your contacts then phone assuming it does not connect what happens?
if you have just opted in to BTFON/BTWIFI I think it will update your hub in a few days
Connecting to my HH via wireless ( 192.168.1.x ) now works although my BTFON isn't activated on my HH
Here's an interesting point :
I remember that I [ cancelled ] the BT search option about a week ago, you know the one that suggests sites that you my be wanting. Now that I have clicked the [ opt in ] for BTFON the search option has returned.
So........ Does cancelling the search option also opt out of BTFON ?? Opting in brings back the search option..
Are the two linked in some way ??
Remember I was opted in to BTFON before I installed Smart Talk..
I guess I've answered my own question
Unless you know different !!!
sorry I don't use a hub so can't answer that question
You don't need to be connected to BT WiFi for this to work, any WiFi network is OK. So when at home just connect to your normal home WiFi connection and it should work. I'm transitioning from BT as we speak but my phone account still works as does SmartTalk through the new providers hub, no BT WiFi or Openzone here anymore.
That's interesting Somersetbob,
I'll try the next time I'm in Tesco.
ps. I did click the *opt in* on my HH a few days ago and it's not showing active yet..
somersetbob is right, but I would go further and say that you don't need wifi at all if you're somewhere with a half decent mobile signal.
