    Hi

    I have a HTC Hero from 3UK on contract but the phone has no branding on it at all. Is it unbranded?

    The reason I say this.....there is no 3 logos on start up or anywhere on the phone, no apps with anything to do with 3.

    The sim is mine and I swapped it over from an early upgrade (N95) on contract with 3UK.

    Goto the HTC site select a generic Rom and enter your serial number, it will only let you download roms for your device

    Just tried that, to satisfy my own curiosity and it wouldn't let me download the Orange ROM based on my 3's serial number
    I expected it wouldn't, since i am unable to download 2.73.405.5 (EU).....so it must be branded in some way

    Go into the settings, go to About Phone at the bottom and look for your build number in there. From that we should be able to tell if it's a branded phone or not :)

    Its not the most recent but I wasn't sure what the new upgrade did...there's no information (correct me if I'm wrong) on the difference between my version and the new build. The old addage, if its not broken, don't fix it

    That new one I linked to probably isn't anything major, only a few minor bug fixes or something. You're still running 2.73.x.x so you can't be too far behind. I only mentioned it so you could confirm it really was a 3UK phone :)

    Plus, with the 2.1 update coming soon, there's no point installing it really.
