Vodafone and BT Mobile also, by default, block non-approved domains. You 
can call them to get this restriction lifted.

I hit this when investigating spam in my role as manager of anti-spam 
development at MessageLabs!

I've never hit this on O2, however, but then I don't do a lot of data 
use on O2.

The mobile companies do have a fair point about this, as a large 
proportion of their mobile data users are children. However, "any 
feature that cannot be turned off is a bug", as they say.
