Great write up above about rooting the HTC Desire, even as a Postie for the last 40 years I can follow what's being said, but it's one thing hearing the music, another thing trying to dance to it :-(
I always fancied one of these new phones and the wife bought me one off eBay for Christmas, but it's Orange Branded and I use Tesco PAYG. I managed to get that sorted in one of the local unlock shops, but after a few weeks I'm fed up of all the Orange stuff, none of it that I'd ever use or want on the phone.
The problem is, I've asked 3 shops locally (in Blackpool) if they know how to debrand the phone, none of them know how, either that or they think the chance of bricking it is too high.
After 40 years of "walking the streets" I've just retired so I've a bit of time on me hands now to play with this new technology so, I'd really appreciate it if anyone knows a shop or someone in the NW who is capable of doing the job.
Bob the (ex) Postie.
