Forum Software Migration (2nd Update)

As you may have noticed, the forum software has undergone a bit of a facelift. We've migrated from vBulletin4 to vBulletin5.2.2. As with all software major updates, there will undoubtedly be a few hiccups. As with all software upgrades, vBulletin has made changes in how their software works, so there may be a bit of a learning curve as you re-orient yourself to their changed environment.

We have worked through the initial hiccups that were reported. If you experience additional issues, please pm them to wm and we'll work through them. Thanks for your patience!

Regards,
paman and wm

  • Code to call International numbers cheap on XL?

    Hey does anyone know what the code is? If there is one? if not which network would you suggest for cheapest calls?

    Thanks

    01000 I believe for pro xl this uses VoIP technology. I use Telkomsel and their standard International code is 007 however they also have 01017 again using VoIP, the clarity of the calls using VoIP is not always good.

          When I was here in 2009, I used SIMpaty (Telkomsel) and had very good experiences with the 01017 number. It was just 01017.1.aaa.nnn.nnnn where aaa is US area code and nnn.nnnn is phone number. Now I use Indosat, and I do not know their VOIP access number :-( . But Skype works reasonably well in Jkt.

            Yes it is, take the 0 off the home number. So 01017 then country code, 1 for US I believe, then the home number minus the 0. This is if you use Telkomsel the numbers for the other networks are here.

            I have had issues using 01017 in the last few weeks, but others are having no problem.

              I use xl and the code is 01000 but the connection is bad. Sometimes it's not clear. I ever tried 3 before, and it's even worse.
              Imagine, it's POSSIBLE. Dream boundless...

                Ok...that worked!! Awesome...I can call home more now. Skype is just not dependable here in Indo in my experience. Thanks for the help

                  I have been using Skype with my parentsfor a while. It used to be pretty bad (sometimes bad pictures, choppy videos, dropped connection) but that was when my dad used Speedy 768Kb. We upgraded to FastNet 6MB (and using Speedy 2MB as a backup), quality moved up significantly. Maybe only 10% drop call rate. I suggest buying a nice headphone/mic set also...it reduces your need to yell and cuts out all the ambient noise.

                  With Speedy 2MB it should be fine...especially if you're just using the audio.

                  I'm in PDX, parents in JKT.
