    As MrW said, it is not available where you are. I and MrW are also waiting for the UK release. Hopefully it will be released tomorrow :)

    As for branding, do the following to check if it is branded or not...

    Lock the phone (make sure the screen is still lit up tho), then press the following sequence...

    Menu, Back, Back, Menu, Back, Menu, Menu, Back

    Then the "Service" menu should pop up. Go into Service Info, then into Model Info, and let me know what it says. If it says Brand: Customized, it means it is unbranded, if it doesn't it more likely to be branded

    Unsure about that one, never seen that before

    You will receive it as soon as SE release it to the UK

    You will not receive it until O2 have done their business with it and released it. Even after it has been release by SE for the UK, you will not be able to update until O2 have made their changed to it

    Yes there is, you can debrand your phone, but it will void your warranty. I debranded from T-Mobile, and am now waiting for the update anytime now :)

    To debrand, go HERE!

    Follow steps 1-5 only (if you want to root too, continue all steps), then update to the latest firmware using SEUS :)

    I'm not sure, but you could ask X10iUser as he has already done it and received the 2.1 update :)

    X10iUser did it, and he didn't have any problems :) He's going to upload some screenshots later :) and chances of bricking it are very very low
