Re: acer n 30 doesn't make phone calls

Do you want to use the N30 over WAP/GPRS, dial-up land land line or a GSM modem. The N30 does not have any kind of modem or cellular capability built-in, only 'blue tooth' so depending on your requirements you will have to obtain a sutable external device. You are not compelled to use a mobilephone hand set though.

Re: acer n 30 doesn't make phone calls

I have just bought a SPECTEC SDIO WiFi 802.11b card for my Acer n30B, and it now works fine as a fully wifi capable computer as long as i can pick up a wifi hotspot, and the next thing I will be doing is installing Skype mobile on the n30B, and that should give me the capability of making free computer to computer phone calls world wide to other skype users, and for a small subscription to Skype talk time, it can also be used to make worldwide phone calls to landlines and mobile phones at a fraction of the cost of using a regular phone, I suggest you try the same thing! Best of luck!

Acer n30 Screen Tap Freeze

Sounds as if the touch screen membrane is defective, which is a darned nuisance, but not impossible to fix .... if you are confident of dismantling the n30, you can buy a new touch screen membrane from Ebay for about 4 pounds/6 dollars.
It is a very skilful job to remove the old touch membrane from the actual display screen below it, not really for a novice, and all internal components are very delicate, so i suggest you find a tame technician before you buy the new membrane. The touch membrane connects to the motherboard via a tiny flexible 4 or 5 pin membrane ribbon cable, it's a miracle of miniature engineering inside the n30, so do ve very careful if you decide to do it yourself, best of luck!

Acer N30 battery problem (even new battery does not last enough)

try checking your power saving options, you can drop down the backlight a little lower to extend battery life. Also you can lower down the volume of the system sound and check if the bluetooth is on, then turn it off. Recharge it and then check if the battery life extends. You also need to occasionally soft-reset the n30
