Is your mobile operator crippling your phone?

Making calls from your mobile over wifi, instead of your mobile provider’s network, saves lots of money on call charges. This has the obvious consequence of reducing the income of the bloodsucking mobile operators (all together now, awwwww).

To ensure you can’t do this, some mobile operators have crippled the ability to make Internet calls on the phones they sell you as this video demonstrates:

If your mobile operator has done thisto your phone, shame on them. I presume re-installing the original Nokia firmware on your phone will bring back the Internet calling functionality. Can anyone confirm this?

  1. You can restore all factory functionality to Nokia phones if you feel competent about installing software on your computer already. If you don’t feel comfortable with this process, find a service point. We use Communications People in Thurles, County Tipperary, and they offer quick and painless way to upgrade features on mobile phones.
