    I see that the new N95 8G, the N81 and N81 8G and the have the VoIP functions similarly deactivated. All very frustrating for those who sign up to O & V directly – but it’s worth noting that getting an Orange or Voda account through retailers (Carphone Warehouse, Phones 4U etc) normally gets you a NON operator-branded phone with all the features intact……
