Positive Negative

Nokia confirmed that the issue is due to the fact that they have introduced operator billing, however they should have really waited until all their operator tie ups were confirmed and ready to roll out, rather than withdrawing all current payment functionality before the operator payment was rolled out.

This was a really silly decision by Nokia, but hopefully this issue will be resolved in the very near future. As for me, in the UK, i still have access to paid applications so i can only assume that this issue is country-specific, either that or firmware-related. I'm running 1.0 firmware and can download paid for applications - or at least see them on the Ovi Store.
