I have recently bought a branded orange S2 model GT-i9100P.
I am already on orange network.
I want to unbrand the phone.
I am not that bothered about unlocking it. But if it is easy to do then I will do it.
I have searched and searched for how to unbrand it, but I just keep going round in circles.
So I have some specific questions:-
1) Does it need to be unlocked before it can be unbranded?
2) Is it easy to unlock? If so, how.
3) I have downloaded ODIN, but I cannot locate anywhere the latest stock UK simfree firmware. Where can I find the firmeware?
4) Is it OK to use simfree firmware on a phone that is simlocked?
Sorry if all these questions seem amateurish, but it is very hard to find a definative answer on the web. I am an embedded software engineer by trade so if I am struggling, then others must also be.
