    I don't know, so you should wait to hear from someone who has got one, but Orange rarely miss a chance to mess with the software so I wouldn't gamble on it.

    If you get the phone through CarPhoneWarehouse (or their online arm, mobiles.co.uk) it will be unbranded and unlocked even on Orange.

    FYI you can hide apps in this version of Touchwiz, so you can choose to hide all the bloatware :)

    I've got an O2 PAYG SGS3 and I've hidden all of the bundled Samsung and O2 apps (about eight).

    Hello there, can someone let me know what the internal memory size is on the Orange pay monthly phones. The orange website doesn't say. I have added a new phone to my existing account so not an upgrade as such - an extra phone.

    I got mine from an Orange shop in Manc on Wednesday and the only trace of Orange is the SIM applications icon and the My Orange app I downloaded. I'm glad to hear they're also unlocked at the moment.

    I wonder if the same will be the case for those hanging on for the mystical blue model......
