    Basically my phone is running "old" 1.5 firmware and it's UK orange, unlocked. I know I can update the phone with the Oranges firmware update, but what will happen when I do it, will the phone lock itself again to Orange, or?

    I tried searching for the answer on these forums but didn't really find the correct answer so here I am.

    And if it locks, what choices are there for me when it boils down to updating the phone?

    Cheers.

    Handset will remain unlocked. That's independant of any ROM.

    Thank you, that was exactly the answer I was after. Since I didn't know is the unlocking ROM Specific trick or what. So... Thank you.
