While not strictly an X-Series related topic, there has been quite a bit of commentary going on our blog recently relating to 3 Ireland (offset only by an enthusiastic series of post-birthday wishes from many people to Google!). As such, our colleagues there have provided the following responses relating to some of the issues being raised:
Reference: Third-party applications that use port 80
These have not been blocked, we are investigating why applications mentioned may not be working.
Reference: X-Series Orb registration process and UK phone number
This is being addressed. In the interim, our support staff are aware of this and will activate Orb on behalf of the customer in the meantime.
Reference: RTSP stream query
This is not something we are aware, we are however investigating following your complaint
Reference: Skype client
The current client supports Skype to Skype calling and we are looking to Skype messaging in the next release of software towards the end of the year. Skype is a service available on 3's 3G network.
MSN is available on 3's 3G network, we are looking to further enhance the functionality and we are looking to work with a new partner to bring even more features to MSN users on 3.
Reference: unlimited data
We have packages designed to ensure that users have unlimited access to the x-series services, of course with any service like this a fair usage limit applies to prevent abuse or fraud and this is accessible via
three.ie and the x-series website.
We hope the above helps answer some of the questions being asked.
