    Hello! I feel dumb.

    I have the HTC Desire unlocked here in the US. I'm using AT&T as my network, and everything works fine.

    I do not want to root my phone.

    I want the upcoming Froyo 2.2 update, and I have seen that it is soon available for Vodafone. This confuses me. I am wondering -- will HTC release the new OS on their website, and I can just download and install it myself?

    Thanks!

    Well now that 2.2 is more official for the desire, surely I can do this an easier way?

    I keep checking "Prefs > About Phone > System software Updates > Check Now", but it never works...

    Will it ever work? Remember I am on AT&T here in the states... although it is an unlocked phone.

    Also depends on what you mean by 'unlocked'

    Unbranded = original HTC ROM (not network specific), updates from HTC not your network provider.

    Debranded = network specific ROM with all network branding removed, but it is still network specific and needs an update issued by your network provider.

    Unlocked = phone can use any SIM card from any network; ROM can be either be branded, unbranded or debranded.
