Connect to alternate Freeserve access numbers Internet
One for UK users. Since switching to a Mac only Freeserve Anytime number, I've been getting occasional "Service not available" messages on the phone line so I cannot connect via PPP. After numerous emails to Freeserve's support line, I have finally got out of them the entire list of phone numbers, which are usually reserved for Windows only. However, these work fine with Mac OS X (10.2). To add these numbers in:
  1. Open Internet Connect
  2. On the Telephone Number drop down box, select Edit
  3. Add in the following numbers:
    • 147008083316080
    • 147008089933265
    • 147016164208452402602
    • 147008089933251
    • 147008089916001
Now, whenever you get a "Service not available" message, just choose one of the other numbers from the Telephone Number drop-down in Internet Connect and reconnect.

Is this still happening? That was my main reason for moving to broadband.
