Default nokia and symmetricNAT

I know for a fact that symmetric nat would break use of stun in general, whereas nokia firmware has only tackled mobile wifi via stun server. Now would someone please tell me if this actually has rendered usage of wifi phones impractical out there? Does truphone bypass this kind of problem thru use of outbound proxy? My next question is: does outbound proxy solve the issues of wifi phone behind [i]all[i] kind of NAT routers? If so, why do we need stun server in the first place? Why so many complain about lack of firmware update to include stun ability in these nokia phones? Isn't outbound proxy a much better and general solution?
