NZtechfreak: Interesting to note that Vodafone may not disable VOiP here - Vodafone in Australia is saying they will no longer alter a phones native capabilities due to the consumer stink around the issue. I will be watching with interest to see what Voda-NZ does.

I really do hope the maps get updated with the phones release here!

Oh yes, the headphones act as the aerial for the radio ;]


Vodafone Australia didn't cripple VoIP on the E65 either like the UK did. Voda UK forced the SIP client to connect only via a 3G access point - you couldn't set the phone to use VoIP over WiFi.

Well it seems that we like to copy every bad idea that England has so I would expect whatever happened with Vodafone in England did, will happen here.

I do alot of browsing on my phone buy I mainly do it at home when it is inconvenient to use my laptop so I connect using my WLAN.

Vodafone's data prices are a real rip off though. Are you sure that it is that expensive for 3g data. I thought that it was cheaper than that?

Oh right, thats the way to do it. So do i change my telstra cable modem to a wisrless one?
And yea got it in front of me, these are the addon to  you choose plans

Casual 0mb-$11.25 per mb
Data 3mb -$11.25
Data 15mb-$21.40

They said that you could in turn get another sim card just for data, so that you would have to have 2 sin cards and interchange them
when you used data/calling....

Broadband starter 200mb-$39.95
Broadband everyday 1gb-59.95.

The risk is probably pretty small if you are sure of what you are doing. Download NSS, run it and connect your phone. Write down your current product code so you can change it back. Use NSS to alter to the one you want then download the software update and use NSS to change your product code back again.
Changing product code wont hurt your phone but using a software update meant for a different product code, well that is your risk.
Personally, I am happy to wait for the correct update, patience is a virtue Smile

I don't know what your modem is like but if it has a LAN cable output then you could just buy a wireless access point and plug it into a spare LAN output. That should be much cheaper than buying a whole new router.

From what I see, those are ridiculous prices. I can't believe that Vodafone thinks that people are actually going to pay that for what they offer. It is basically like Xtra. Xtra crap. High prices and nothing else. Having two simcards. Vodafone are jokers.

I think i'll try and get a parallel imported one, freed from that horrible Vodafone firmware,, I can see the problems now.

OT but does anyone have a working product code for a 6233 so I can debrand my 6234?

i'm starting to hate having Nokia logo's on my 6275 and Vodafonelive icons on my 6234.




????   The "burble" of American V8? Isn't it more like a purrring roar then an aggressive GROWL when you apply the gas?

I reckon that if someone opened up a  cellphone company that offered all the services that Vodafone offers, but at a cut price, that they would make a killing because people would come running to get the affordable services.

What we need is more competition for GSM. Vodafone can get away with charging anything for their services because if you don't like it and you want GSM, where are you going to go? Answer: Nowhere.

Problem with that is, as soon as the company even plans to build a new network, Vodafone would slash its prices to kill off the competitor.

Ah, yes. Didn't think of that. Ahhh, so annoying. I suppose that if another multinational business came over here, then that might help because they wouldn't be as intimidated by Vodafone as a small company would be. Maybe, T-Mobile, Cingular.
