It means I can't install my self-issued Root Certificate, which I need to synchronise the device to my Exchange server.
I know i-mate will supply a signed certificate loader program for their Smartphones. I've asked Vodafone for something similar.
In the meantime, I have successfully used the hack that unlocks the Windows Mobile SDA and installed my certificate. The hack is a signed registry editor (so that I can change some security policies), and a PC tools that "unlocks" the device. Google it and you will find more information.
It's a shame manufacturers and operators can't get this right. It's a great security feature, but why is it possible to install a Root Certificate on Windows Mobile Pocket PC, but Windows Mobile Smartphone is so locked down? I know a few organisations that actually issue their own Root Certificates. I hope Vodafone comes back to me with a proper signed certificate loader program.
Ooops. Better stop complaining, or Pocket PCs will be locked down too.
