    Hello there

    I have an unbranded HTC Wildfire, but it doesn't download any firmware updates. At the moment my software number is 1.14.110.1 and I know that there's an update to 1.25.405.1. But when I want to check for Software updates it says that there are none. What might be the problem?

    EDIT : Is it possible that the phone is still branded but without a sim-lock? Because I get T-Mobile start up screen,but use whole other SIM and there's no T-Mobile in the country i'm from.

    I cannot help you with your problem directly as I do not know how, however regards your edit yes it still can be branded and be without sim-lock. I have brought my wildfire from eBay and I could use any sim card however later I discovered that in fact it was branded. This is also what may be affecting your update as well.

    Cheers.

    Solved my problem. There are some useful articles on how to debrand a Wildfire on xda forums. No more T-mobile startup screen and latest firmware.

    Thanks for your answers and sorry for being so stupid :D
