I've just bought a HUAWEI B315s-22 mobile router intending to use it in a remote area in Wales where I am unable to get a fixed phone line installed. It will be used primarily as a phone as it has a RJ11 socket and the adverts says..
"TELEPHONE PORT - This will enable the connection of a normal analogue telephone to make and receive GSM calls - this means that if you insert a SIM card that provides both Voice and Data you can make and receive calls using a normal telephone with call charges as per your call plan."
I am testing it first down south near Cambridge with a good mobile signal.
A couple of questions please
I've put in a PAYG O2 voice & data sim card with £10 on it, the same as you would use in a mobile phone. It connects to the mobile signal with three bars but my computer reports there is no internet available. The admin page of the router says 4G - no internet. Have I bought the right type of sim or should it have been a data only sim? (Some web sites say either work, some say you must use data only)
If I use a data only sim and that gets me connected to the internet, how can I use the analogue phone I have (actually its a small payphone) to make and receive calls? Do I just plug it in or do I need to mess around with VOIP contacts etc?
