You are correct.

Spicy Vector is the only group who seem to be reliably providing 
download services for Vodaphone applis as far as I know.  I hear that 
the NEC service has been shut down, and there was rumour of another, but 
I don't remember the name.

As far as the spicy vector service goes you need to go through a fairly 
detailed online application process in Japanese, which makes things a 
little difficult for those with limited Japanese skills.
