Starhub Porting over land line

Starhub porting over of land line is not as seamless as mention on their website. Timing is quite important to ensure your downtime is as minimum as possible.

Time Line

It takes 7 working days to unlock your land line and enable the incoming Telco to process the application. The incoming Telco take 5 working days to complete the transfer. Therefore you are looking at a few days if downtime if it is time correctly. The whole process will take 12 business working days to complete.

Acceptance

Sending in the transfer app by email is not seamless. You need to ensure the agent receive your form else it is not counted. Sitting in the email is not good enough as their sales executive share the same email.

Therefore it is better to submit through the customer service centre to ensure acceptance of instruction to act.

Please leave a comment if your porting over of land line is delay in anywhere.

Samsung S8 and Linksys Router

Samsung S8+ was not performing at the optimum when I upgraded my router to EA 7500 via Starhub. Certain apps like Google Play are taking longer time to initate the download. The internet is working fine on the browser and certain apps and that is why you may not discover immediately.

The most obvious for my case is my Word and Excel app was taking longer time to connect to Dropbox files and unable to download it to process. It will give you no internet connect after some time. WhatsApp take 10 secs longer to start the download.

Recommended Solution

  1. You just need to forget the network
  2. Please forget 2 network channels (2.4GHz & 5GHz)
  3. Switch off the router for 2 minutes
  4. Switch on the router
  5. Connect back to network and key in your password

This may resolve lagging issue and that you are facing. Android Nougat is known to have Wifi issue. Thus if you use mobile network, it will not occur.

Hope the above info helps all. The Linksys support also not sure of the root cause and will recommend this method unless it do not work.

Else you will need to send your S8 back to the Samsung service Centre as it have nothing to do with the router or apps.

Change Car Battery

This is probably the last time I am going to change my car battery. It had dropped to 198CCA and it may goes faulty anytime if I am not lucky. In addition, mine is an off peak car which I drive during weekend only.

This new Bosch battery give me 591CCA which is above the specs of 560CCA.

What is CCA?
Cold cranking amps (CCA) is a measurement of the number of amps a battery can deliver at 0°F for 30 seconds and not drop below 7.2 volts. So a high CCA battery rating is especially important in starting battery applications, and in cold weather.This measurement is not particularly important in deep cycle batteries, though it is the most commonly “known” battery measurement.

S8 Plus Moisture Error

The moisture sensor on S8/S8+ is a totally new error. I panic when I got it the first time. This was not evident in the earlier Glaxay S series model.

You will not be able to charge your phone when you got the above error. The only way you can charge is by using the wireless charging station if u have one.

Else get ready to do the following. Clean your data cable and S8 charging port. You can use a cotton bud or any soft material that can wipe on the port. This will help to remove the moisture present on the port of charging cable.

If the above does not work, then you will need to visit the local Samsung Store.

Kampung Admiralty Open Raining Plaza

It seems like the open plaza mechanical system is still not functioning. The heavy raining this morning made the open plaza totally wet.

Lum Chang had not complete the rectification works. It should ideally be automatic. Opening up during sunny days to bring in the natural light and close it up on wet days.

We shall see what happen on the next few days before we write in to the Woodlands team. Let’s see whether the UEMS facility team is proactive on the above outstanding issue.

Embracing Starhub

After 4 years with Singtel, I am moving back to Starhub Home Hubber Package. Starhub is offering 6 months off the subscription fees excluding the set top box which you must still pay monthly.

It is a hassle to switch between service providers but if for cost savings, then I shall give a try. I am taking a leap of faith as I also know Starhub had poor customer service since my last encounter with them.

I am giving them another chance to check whether they had improve on their customer delivery experience.

Shifting Telco Preparation

I am preparing my migration of broadband, TV and home line to Starhub. Singtel is no extending any special promotion to loyal customer like me.

Subscribing a package is easy but transferring your home line number is a more complicated process.

I have to inform Singtel to untie my number. In addition, they still must assign a dummy number as my broadband is still active and not cancel yet.

The process takes about 3 to 5 working days to untie the home line number. This will enable you to port the number without applying a new number.

It is entirely up to you whether you want to retain the existing line or get a new line. There will be a few days of downtime for your home line during the transfer due to the paper works.

You can plan early as the other service providers will also take time to activate the 2nd port of your fibre.

It is critical that you must not terminate your line or subscription or you will face downtime for your service. It is inevitable that you will be paying two services for a few days.

Greasy Gas Stove

My mum loved to eat fry food like fried tofu, fried egg or fried prawn roll for her simple meal. She will leave behind a gas stove which is greasy.

I will indirectly get the blame as the stove and kitchen will be greasy. My mum will clean up but will not remove the grease but just wipe through only. I will need to do it else my wife will be unhappy.

My wife may not be thoughtful to clean for my mum sometimes. But I will not muttered a word to avoid any quarrel as she always feel she is right in her judgement.

I will definitely choose not to live with my children when they are married. This is to avoid any disagreement which people may not see eye to eye. Living under a roof is more complicated as everyone must be use to one another habits and character.

Easygoing people should have no issue as there will always be tolerant to other people. Will you be tolerant with your family members under one roof?
