Well, that idea is used by most (afiak all) german providers for mobile 
They offer a tool to disable it (to have the option on the phone itself woul 
be great!), but most people don't even care on the picutres being totally 
crappy... So I think this feature (the compression) should be avaliable on 
carriers side, not on the openmoko side. Of course not every carrier will do 
so, but in my mind you cannot ask FIC to offer this service... that will 
cause GBs of traffic per day, if enough users buy and use the phone.
