If I remember rightly the samba advert site doesn't come out of your days allowance. You can watch them over any connection though, so watch rt them at home and get the allowance for when out and about

I watch the Samba ads at home (or work) on a conventional broadband connection and pick up the credit that way.

Ovivo saga continues:
http://ovivomobile.c...tising-is-back/

The nuts & bolts of it (without the child friendly graphics) are -
*Each time you open your phone browser you will see a selection of offers from chosen partners that they think will be relevant to you.
*Click on offer or after 5 seconds you can press “Continue”" at the bottom of the page to continue browsing to your chosen site.

Too intrusive? I don't think it will be so will be trying it ouit on my phone as of next week. I'm also curious to see how this will be implimented on mi-fi... Oh well, soon see I suppose.

Yeah, I stuck the info in the post about their APN changes.

Only time will tell how annoying the ads become. :(

I activated my Ovivo sim yesterday and ported over me number from Giffgaff on my Ascend G300. All's well except on this phone I use Opera mini beta 5 for browsing as the forums I frequent appear much better, the settings for Ovivo obviously default the stock browser so it can redirect to ads which I have no problem with as I'm getting a good deal. Is there a way to set Opera as my default, I've tried the old 

Settings-applications-manage applications-clear default but the clear default is greyed out on stock browser

any ideas folks?

Ovivo does not like the socket port

 

In Opera mini you need to go into settings->advanced->protocol

and change it form Socket/HTTP to just HTTP
