What does “standard message and data rates charged by your wireless provider will apply” mean?

Question by v.chum: What does “standard message and data rates charged by your wireless provider will apply” mean?
Sorry, I know this sounds silly but Im unsure if that means when a text message is sent to my phone every text message is going to charge me because it cost to have a text message sent from that website. Or does it mean if I have unlimited text messages then I won’t get charged?

Answer by Amelia
It depends on your phone plot. If you don’t have a texting plot, the company is warning you that every text they send you will cost you money.
If you do have a texting plot though, you will not be charged.

If i use a voip service on my cell phone like justvoip, do I get charged my regular cell minutes?

Question by jungaree: If i use a voip service on my cell phone like justvoip, do I get charged my regular cell minutes?
My Nokia E71 has voip hardware installed and I thought that any voip calls would be made through my cell phone’s wireless connection thereby not costing me minutes on my phones talk plot. Is there any way of getting around getting charged daytime minutes for VOIP calls?
Hi again…just spoke with my Wireless provider (Rogers in Canada) and they said that they do charge you your daytime cell minutes for VOIP calls. Man, even when it’s over a wifi connection, they’re able to sting you. Any different in the U.S.?

Best answer:

Answer by death
No charge on phone talk plot
But on packet data plot(net plot) in other words voip uses internet
It would be free if you use wlan, wifi services of establishments

Could i use a different phone input for internet if I have fibre optic?

Question by traneartist: Could i use a different phone input for internet if I have fibre optic?
I am going to be getting Fibre optic broadband installed, but I need another router in another part of my house for a desktop pc. would the other router still be able to get internet if the main one is connected via fibre optic?

Answer by Light Knight
You may not need (or want) a 2nd router. When you use multiple routers care must be taken to make sure that the IP addresses that each are issuing will work the way you would like.

Use a switch. It will make the set up simpler.
This will allow each device to be routed and issued an IP address through your main router.

Run CAT5 one line from your router to the other part of the house central to your other devices.
Place a switch there and then connect up each of your devices to the switch.

Note: You may be able to set up a router to act as a switch, or use a wireless router to act as a wireless access point.

Whats the fastest download speed you can get on dialup?

Question by Brian H: Whats the fastest download speed you can get on dialup?
I have dialup and i can usually average download speeds from about 7 KBps to 10 but quite a few times ive been getting 18KBPS how much quicker can i get it?

Best answer:

Answer by kfaulk211
Modems go up to 56K, but no one will ever achieve that speed. Dial up is limited mainly by your phone lines, which are not equipped for transferring large amounts of data.

Most people can get up to about 20-30KBps, but it sounds like your never going to get to 20. That’s probably a limitation of where you live, rather than any of your hardware.

Get DSL.
