As the momentum around Skype for iPhone + Blackberry(followed by their previous announcement on Nokia N73) gathers rave reviews from customers and media alike, I wonder why Vodafone continues to block Skype?
This is very old fashioned and as a long standing Voda customer, it may be cause to switch operators who will not do so.
Apart from the walled garden implications .. this affects me directly as a Vodafone customer and as a frequent traveller.
I have a friend who says that: SE C905 doesn’t allow me. It runs many JME apps, of course, but denies installation of quite a few, including Skype. So much about Open Gardens…
I see no reason now for Vodafone to block Skype now that its on Nokia, Blackberry and the iPhone.
Any reason why Voda could be legitimately blocking it?
Sadly, I will have to switch Operators if this does not change .. I have a large address book on Skype and the more that address book works on a phone .. the better it is for me ..
I probably won’t switch to the iPhone .. but being a Nokia + Blackberry user historically – N97 + Blackberry seems to be a good choice ..
