Hi Tino,
thank you for sharing. My problems are that firstly I loose something that
was working good for so many years and is sufficient for my needs. Second I
do not want to access my home network via WLAN and last I do not want to
use WLAN on the phone all the time. You may add the lack of choice that is
gone as well.

But thanks anyway.
