Just back from my local Carphone Warehouse store and seen the HTC desire for £410 on Orange pay as you go. I've been looking at getting a sim free Desire because i've already got a sim only plan from 02. My only concern is the handsets being branded and me having to use branded firmware and then wait for ages for updates.
Does anyone know if the phone's in Carphone Warehouse are network branded ? Also is there any way of telling if the Desire is network branded like start up screen animation etc. Can anyone who has recieved their phone from T-Mobile shed some light on this if possible please ?
