    Just ordered my Desire on Three yesterday. Chose Three because they had the best contract deal i could find (thru Carephone Warehouse) and because I think they have a good signal at my place of work.

    Just had a quick look to check the status of Three's Froyo update, and if this is correct it seems not only will my phone arrive with it already installed, it isn't getting it either.

    i thought if you get a phone through carphone warehouse, they are unbranded?

    I dunno, but on the Desire page of their website, it more than once mentions 2.2 Android, and lists HD video recording as a feature, which is only for the 2.2 phones, is it not?

    So you think it might come unbranded but connected to Three network?

    Probably, that is usually the case with CPW. Which is good, you should come with 2.2 preloaded.

    If it doesn't come with 2.2 installed, I can send it back to CPW then because it hasn't come as advertised I suppose?

    You'd have to read the small print, but if it is unbranded and not on 2.2, it will download the update over the air.

    If you turn it on and it has 3 logos, thats the only worry you would have but I would find it unlikely.

    Thanks Mike. Looks like I should be OK.

    mobiles.co.uk, which is owned by CPW clearly state that their phones are unbranded and unlocked, and nearly ordered from them, but they were cheapest on T-Mobile, whereas CPW were cheapest on Three, which is why I ordered from them.

    I can't see anywhere on their website where they say they are unbranded but does look like it. :)

    The bloke in CPW confirmed all their phones are unlocked.

    Even if it is locked and branded to 3 you will get the 2.2 update as they rolled it out a few weeks ago.

    LOL, 3 were making such a big deal about how they were testing it more thoroughly than the other networks and they still screwed it up. They are all crap, so please I gold carded and got the HTC release. Been Froyo'd now for weeks with no issues.

    Got my phone yesterday, and can confirm that it is unbranded. Also that it is running v2.2 as it has all the new features, but where do I actually find where it says what version of software it is running?

    And speaking of 3 I have a H signal at home - off to work now hopefully the signal is as strong there too.

    Thanks Dan - found it now, I thought I'd looked in there already, not properly obviously!
