What's rare about this phone? All vodafone 5800 are blue and unlocked (if by chance it isn't unlocked vodafone will unlock it for free)

I assume by the fact that you say it's unbranded but it has a vodafone branded box that the Product code on the phone has been changed and generic firmware has been installed.... Thus invalidating any warranty left on the phone.

Can you confirm if the product code has been changed and generic firmware installed? Also what version is the firmware?

Thanks for the info.. It's not on the latest firmware so I assume the that where it says latest update not updated means it's still on its factory firmware... Most recent software version as far as I'm aware is v 21.0.025.

Which leads me to believe that the phone is not unbranded - can you confirm this?
I think when you say unbranded your meaning that there is no physical branding on the actual phone casing rather than the software being unbranded could you check this please... when you switch the phone on do you see a vodafone red splash screen?

the phone physically is not branded.

When it loads up there is no vodafone logo branding.

hence i say its unbranded

Thanks for confirming that.

I am going to withdraw my interest as it appears the phones product code has been changed to debrand it and hence any warranty would be voided. Phone has also not been updated with the latest software.. previous experience with updating the software on a unbranded phone via a changed product code resulted in a bricked phone with a voided warranty. (very expensive to sort out) So not going to risk it.

just to let you know its not rare! I know more people with blue ons than I do with red!

I think it would be good to note to potential buyers that this is an exception and not the norm.

the bricking is an exception yes.. Not sure what happened... and 99% sure it would have bricked even if the product code wasn't change... However, it was more the voiding of the warranty that should be taken into consideration.
#19
i don't know what bricking and what have you is, i haven't updated the firmware as i don't know how to do this, all i have done is taken out of box and used it a bit, how does that void the warranty?

i'm pretty sure once you buy something you are allowed to use it, it doesn't appear to say anywhere that the warranty will be void if used:?

if your still interested let me know thanks
