Well one guy said that when you first switch it on pull the battery out before it can customize (The 3 second gap) and avoid all the crap being loaded.. Obviously you may have to manually add settings..

Probably not a real solution

Finger's x'ed I get an Orange Dual then!

Which seems unlikely, as O's PR co aren't even replying to my mails. Maybe they dislike the debranders ;)

TBH.

There really isn't much to be debranded.

1) To get rid of all the horrible Orange Icons I reset the device upon 'customisation' but all my GPRS/3G/MMS settings were still there?
2) To get rid of the disgusting Orange Dialler just install the CAB I have attached. (Thanks goes to Navadi for making the CAB file and Duttythroy from xda-developers for extracting the Images/XML/RGU Files.)

Anything else to debranded?

If you have any unlikely problems just uninstall it.

Hi,

I unlocked my orange touch dual and am having real problems removing the wap settings. I've been into connection settings and removed all I can see, but the phone still tries to connect using orange WAP... How? I removed it!



Hope someone can help!

Hi everyone. I'm a complete novice and please reply like I'm the village idiot. Cos I kind of am.

I have just taken the Orange Dual Touch, but am using my Vodafone sim as I have access to more than one account (and as the boss can decide when I want the phone!). I have set up the phone fine, but the main reason I have a smart phone (the old one is a TyTn) is for receiving emails. I want to be able to use my Vodafone account for this, but the phone only has Orange options in WAP etc. I am presuming that I need to debrand the phone?

I did the 3 second thing above, and whilst this got rid of arange wallpaper etc, I still cannot achieve my aims. Is the link above likely to solve my problem, and if so, how can I gain access as it is password protected?! Am willing to dish a bit of hard earned in return obviously.

Great phone though!

Thanks to anyone that can help.

Welcome to the forum :)

Debranding is only a cosmetic exercise - you need to remove the SIM lock on the phone and then manually change your email account settings.
The easiest way is to use this service :

Stu - thanks for that. I think the phone was unlocked anyway as our retailer gave us a sim unlock code to enter which worked. I have now found the access point name details for vodafone that I needed to get online for web and emails outside the default orange thing. A happy man!
