Now imagine this:
You just bought yourself a nice, cool, sleak Nokia E65 or N95 for around £700. You’re excited as can be because you want to utilize the VoIP network you have access to, and your Nokia has SIP capability. You get home, you configure your phone as you ought and “fwwwrrreppp.” No good. You can’t get a connection. You try reconfiguring until your blue in the face, but to no avail. You eventually sniff around the internet and discover your provider has disabled components of your £700 phone and it’s now worth about £300-400.
How excited would you be about that?
Well, the folks at The Register are keeping us posted on just such a possibility unfolding in the UK.
Hold on to your hats boys and girls. This could get really interesting!
