Comes With Music hits 3UK

3UK, previously one of the top electronic music retailers in the UK after iTunes, is embracing Nokia’s Comes With Music offering. Interestingly, it’s hitting their N95 8GB handsets – not the standard 5000 series devices. And that makes a lot of sense. If you already have an N95 8GB then you won’t qualify. I understand its new handsets only. That’s a bit of an arse. But understandable. The date of joy is Monday 3rd of November. So that’s another operator out of the running as an Omnifone customer (I imagine). What next for their MusicStation service?

Omnifone is so weird. You can't install the app or get the service unless you have a VOD branded phone, with VOD firmware. It's not enough to be a VOD customer and have unlocked top-end phone.

The MusicStation software requires Vodafone's security certificates installed. They're only available in branded firmware.

AIUI, the certificate is needed to access core phone functionality. It also ensures that the software isn't mistakenly installed on to an incompatible / competitor handset.

You can use it with an unlocked phone from Vodafone. If you've ported across from a competitor, or bought an unbranded handset, you'll need to flash it with the latest VF firmware.
