    Default [Vodaphone UK] They complain if you use an iPhone with their simcards

    Hi,

    I use my unlocked iPhone in combination with a Vodafone SIM provided to me by the company that I work for. Today I received a message saying Vodafone has requested me to stop using a 'non approved device' on their network, ie the Iphone.

    Is there any way to make the Vodafone network think I'm using a Nokia while actually using the Iphone?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    I think the only way vodafone could do this is via your imie number, not sure of the legality but using ziphone allows changing this, so you could put in the imie of a nokia phone.

    We have 6 iPhones in our company all running on vodafone, and not one of us has had this message, are u sure the message came from vodafone or one of your jealous collegues?

    Hi
    Theres nothing they can do about what phone you use

    I'm vodafone UK I can't wait for the call or text coz thats the reply I'll be giving them

    Only thing you should be careful of is the GPRS costs that running push mail / internet mite bring.

    Thanks for the replies, I looked in to changing the imei, and zipphone does do that. So technically I could get the nokia 6021 imei and put it on the iphone. The GPRS cost doesn't matter cause it's activated, and usable on the Nokia 6021 I'm supposed to use.

    Also completely sure this is official, the email recipients are on bcc so there must be more, and it came in through our company representative dealing with Vodafone.

    Not sure if i want to risk anything cause changing the imei is illegal (?) and also is that the only way Vodafone would be able to tell wether I'm using an iPhone or not?

    Um, its THEIR network, they are more then allowed to deny you access to it.

    Funny how they would text you this thought when i've seen other people mention that they have told vodafone they are using an iphone and have even helped them set it up...

    Hi m8
    You are right its their network I can't tell them what to do

    but I have 10 phones on a business contract with vodafone UK + have been with them for 11 years or more.

    So I would simply say mind your own business or stick your contracts up your arse and move to someone else


    Your right it is strange there making calls and text to people

    No no, just to clarify, this was by email through our company representative. There was a meeting around this and everything, that's what triggered the email/warning...

    I dont get what you mean by 'Company representative'. Somebody in your company told you to stop using it? Somebody who deals with vodafone in your company told you to stop using it?

    either way, you need stop using it, is it really worth losing your job over?
