RE: @Dear Orange #
Vodafone are just as bad for branding handsets! In fact they are worse in many cases. Many Sony Ericsson handsets have the amazingly useful (for a 'dumbphone') task manager DISABLED!! So you can't minimise your java applet, internet session, or whatever you wish, because Vodafone decided you'd rather use that key as a green or red call/answer button, and for the main large buttons, a Vodafone live button!!!!!!!! Utter rubbish.
Sony Ericsson's do not even HAVE a red/green call hang up button thankfully, it's an unnecessary add on that is integrated well into the menu system for calling and hanging up, leaving the other array of buttons for useful features.
A word of warning to those using NSS (Nemisis, check b-phreaks dot co dot uk for information) to change product codes on nokia mobiles, in order to download non-branded firmware. If after changing code you use NSU, Nokia Software Updater, Nokia *know* that your handset was, for example, Vodafone previously, as the Vodafone product code is printed on the label inside your phone underneath the battery beside the IMEI.
If you change the product code, it registers, and invalidates your warranty with your provider! At nokia service centres product codes are checked with IMEIs as a matter of routine, a quick web search will confirm that for anybody thinking of doing it. Only way I can see to make your handset your own is to use phoenix/JAF with some USB tool to ensure that you debrand the product code, don't use Nokia Software Updater, and if possible if the phone gets shafted later on in life, get a chance to change back to your original product code using the same method, which means no Nokia logs for Nokia to peruse.
Recommendation for unbranded hansets with just a theme: o2 - they don't bastardise firmware it would seem.
Any sane person would want to debrand their Nokia mind you, even if just for the better more stable firmware, let alone the excellent VOIP/SIP functionality.
