Orange UK Panther Plan - Swappables and custom ROM
EDIT:Update time. My Deezer service started working on Sunday night. Approx 72 hours after i added it as a swappable. I guess it takes time for the info to filter through from orange to deezer and for deezer to update their databases to associate a number with a premium account. And to be fair the deezer service is quite good. My only remaining advice for people who are about to choose swappables is dont bother with navigon. Google maps is superior by far. I am swapping navigon for sky sports next month.
I am using Omega ROM v19.1
I can get two free 'swappables' from Orange as i am on their Panther price plan. These swappables are extra services that usually cost £4.99 each.
I chose Navigon satnav (which is crap, but i digress) and a service called 'Deezer'.
'Deezer' is similar to spotify, stream unlimited music to the phone. However whenever i try to activate my subscription on the Deezer website it refuses to recognise my phone number. Stating that there is no subscription active for the phone number provided.
i rang orange customer services. got through to the android team, they stated that the fact i have a custom ROM means my device ID and phone number will not be recognised.
I call bu**sh*t but the guy was insistent. he laughed a bit and said i shouldnt have told him i was rooted as it will void my warranty. Maybe he hasnt heard of triangle away
Anyway, longshot, has anyone here got their swappables to work with a custom ROM? Or does anyone have any advice? Or is the tech support guy correct? I will try putting a stock sammy ROM on later this week and update here if it makes a difference. I am guessing not though.
It's a 'free' service anyway so not that bothered, but any advice is welcome. Cheers.
