    Hello,

    I am wondering why I got just today the 2.05.405.2 update.
    How can I check if I own a branded or semi-branded phone?

    Hi normally branded phones come from a carrier (like vodafone in the UK).

    Unbranded (or sim free) would have cost you more as you only bought the handset and then put a sim of your choice into it.

    If you can put a SIM in it from another carrier and it works straight away it's unbranded.
