Unlocking the Vodafone 1210 Windows Mobile Smartphone

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 27-Mar-2007 17:29

I've previously posted about the Vodafone 1210 (VDA IV) being locked, which prevents users installing self signed certificates, important for individuals and organisations running Microsoft Exchange Server and their own CA (Certificate Authority) servers.

Since that post I wrote a Vodafone 1210 review and after that I received a few requests on instructions on how to unlock this smartphone.


For all of you who have been waiting for this, Vodafone was listening and they have just sent me a firmware upgrade developed by ASUS, allowing self signed certificates to be installed on this device.

The upgrade software currently does not work on Windows Vista, but it should be ok on Window XP.

Also, if you haven't read the review yet, Vodafone has posted a comment there, confirming an update for Windows Mobile 6 should be avaialble for this device mid-2007.


Good move guys!
