Can anyone help with de-branding a mobile phone ?

    I have an N95 that I've listed for sale, but so far no takers, so am seriously considering having it debranded and unlocked and giving it to my bro in USA.

    Does anyone know where I could get this done and roughly how much ?

    I am open to doing it myself if it's relatively straightforward via a download.

    Any help appreciated.


    put in N95 UNLOCKING + FREE DEBRANDING o a well known auction site and there s a post in service for £17 - so use thsi as a guide.

    maybe a local shop / market trader can also do it - it can certainly be done and this should be a guide price

    Thanks EliTom. Have some rep :thumbsup:

    What network is the phone on?

    I only ask because a quick google search brought up pages claiming it impossible to unlock yourself without actual physical "chipping".

    Phone your network and for a fee they will do it for you. I think to unbrand you need to flash it with generic firmware. This is all just googled not from personal knowledge.

    the forum at expansys would be the best place for this kind of info. there is even a member that has his own store and provides a very reliable service, kingmobiles, search him out there.
