Q: How do I answer using 'Call Waiting'?
Most modern handsets can handle call waiting just fine. When on a call, if you hear an occasional beep it means a call is waiting. To answer it, locate the ‘flash’ or ‘talk’ button your phone, and press it. This will put your current call on hold so you can answer the second call. If that doesnt work you will need to consult your telephone handset manual for complete instructions. If you don’t have a manual you may need to research your particular telephone handset on Google for instructions.
Q: What are your Terms and Conditions?
Q: Email settings
If you have an email address with a provider such as Spark (eg firstname.lastname@example.org) or Farmside (email@example.com) you will need to contact the company that provided your email address to get the correct settings you need to put into your email program. If you have previously used one of these companies for your internet and email you won’t be able to copy the same settings across directly.
If you don’t have an email address or you want or need to change your email address, we recommend Google’s Gmail service as it is free, secure and offers many useful features. You don’t need any other email software if you use Gmail, although you can use a gmail email address with other software if you want to. This is a little more complex to set up and we are happy to provide contact details for computer support firms who can help you.
Some of our existing customers may still have an @ubernet.co.nz email address (we no longer provide new @ubernet.co.nz email addresses). If you have an @ubernet.co.nz address and need to set up your email again, please use the guides below.
Outgoing mail server: mail.ubernet.co.nz (only valid for customers with an @ubernet.co.nz email address)
Please use your full email address for your username, eg firstname.lastname@example.org
