    Hi,

    I want to Debrand my Orange DHD, and i think i know how to do it, having done it to my Hero previously.

    My only issue is, I unlocked the phone using a code I purchased, so if i change the rom to a standard one will the phone still be unlocked?

    I only ask as on my Hero, even though it was debranded, I still had to use a rebelsim to get a different network simcard working, as it didn't unlock, and dont want that to happen this time and to waste the money I paid for an unlock code and then require a new one.

    Thanks,

    Lakis

    Do you mind me asking what "crappy orange stuff"? I've seen a few posts on here about people and the orange apps annoying them. Mine is orange branded and the only orange app I see on there (which was there when I bought it) is the one that lists all the Cust Service numbers etc.

    I've installed Your Orange and the Orange Wednesday apps but they've never given me any problems.

    Hmmm, I wonder if mine is unbranded then as I've got the normal Android/HTC browser, none of the Orange games and the satnav app appears to be google maps.

    Is there any way to tell?
