  1. bonjour,
    tout d’abord merci pour votre travaille suivi.
    j’aurais un problème à vous soumettre, pour arctab 70 it, furyo.
    je suis abonné orange internet +mobile. la TV d’orange que j’ai installée ne s’active que par réseau 3G lors de la première inscription. elle tourne ensuite indifféremment sous wifi ou 3G. serait-ce possible de l’activer, par une sorte de teethering, ou par transfert de fichier, ou..?
    cordialement,
    Hypeace.
