Configuring Emtel HSDPA on HTC / Android

After trying to get the config sent via Emtel’s website, I decided to Google a bit before calling or visiting Emtel. HTC wasn’t their list.

I found the simplest solution on yasir03’s blog, I just created a new connection and put the apn to web. And here’s my first mobile post…


Orange/Mauritius Telecom: Over 1 month and no phone line yet: will I be able to get MyT by 2010 please?

I have been a good word-of-mouth promoter of MyT and how it’s way faster than competition… and more accessible around the island. I’ve been using it a lot last year. But that’s all to it.

I have applied nearly 2 months ago for a telephone line (no, I don’t have one in my new house yet), when it’s supposed to be 3-6 weeks according to agents on their 8902#1#1 Hotline.

“No, you can’t apply for MyT and a telephone line at the same time!” said the lazy-looking lady who even prevented me from filling my application form properly at the Flacq branch of Orange. “Those sections are to be filled after technicians install the line. After that you can apply for MyT and they’ll do line conversion and all.”
