    If you got your phone from carphone warehouse you will find it is an unlocked & unbranded one.

    think this might be vodafone software tag. if it is you'll have to wait till vf change what they need about it.

    is there a possibility to find out if my desire is locked and if it is, to which brand? cause the store where i bought it says it is unbranded, and as i said before, i have the htc start screen and i can use every carrier, but still no update....

    Your software version doesn't match the unbranded one. What country are you in?

    this is a vodfone firmware. i have the same. unlocked and unbranded but still controlled by vodafone.

    go to menu > scenes

    if you can see vodafone (or another carrier), then your phone has carrier firmware and not generic firmware.

    any ideas how i can "unlock" my desire? i have no idea whom to ask. there is no vodafone in austria and my carrier does not offer the desire. and i am not sure if a normal "unlock" will work. because i can use every carrier.
    does anyone have experineces with this "unlocked and unbranded but still controlled by vodafone"-desires?
