    i have an unbranded galaxy s. i do however run it on the t-mobile network. i was assuming that i would get the update sooner than the branded phones as samsung don't need to put all of the t-mobile crap on it.
    i guess i was wrong then.

    There's very very little in the way of branded crap on my T-Mobile Galaxy S.

    But still, I would have assumed that you would get it first. Don't trust T-Mobile as far as I can throw them so we'll see if this really happens.

    Interesting. I got my phone on a contract with T-Mobile back in July however I've since found out that it's not actually locked to their network. Question is would I want to go for the T-mo release or use a generic release?

    Probably a stupid question but if I went with the T-mobile one, there's no way they could then lock the phone to their network is there?

    Samsung will release the update first before any networks

    My T-Mobile contract Galaxy S, also from July has a T Mobile operator code in the ROM.

    Not sure if it's actually locked but that's not relevant I don't think.

    Can't remember how to check which operator code you have.... hmmm

    Right, found it.

    Following code in the dialler *#*#1234#*#*

    The CSC will be I9000XXXYYY Where XXX is your operator code. Mine is TMU, presumably T-Mobile UK.

    Yeah I got the same - TMU. There is an option to install additional codes by the looks of it though I didn't try that...yet!

    My understanding was OXA was one of the UK unbranded CSCs (like XEU).

    *#1234# also works, plus its shorter and easier to get right
