Nokia N70 with THREE VS N70 after debrand with 5.0616 firmware

Advantages of Debranding ?

Fix the bug in the old N70 firmware. It's reported firmware 2.05.37 & 2.05.39 has a bug / problem in the bluetooth connection between the phone and GPS , TOMTOM & Route66. With firmware V5.0616, with the prove from the customers, I can confirm this problem is FIXED!

THREE - With the generic N70 firmware, you can have the option to choose between DUAL MODE or GSM only under the network menu. Therefore, in some area where THREE has a BAD coverage, it will be good to choose as GSM only (2G) so that O2 network will be used rather than THREE (3G).

Vodafone - With the generic N70 firmware, it removed the MP3 restriction proposed by vodafone into the phone. Moreover, the generic menu is much nicer than the vodafone menu.

All vodafone live shortcut, WAP, MMS or GPRS settings will be removed

Orange - With N70 firmware, part of the wallpaper was blocked by the ORANGE shortcut bar, with the generic firmware, the shortcut bar will be removed

All Orange World shortcut, WAP, MMS or GPRS settings will be removed

Notes: with the generic N70 firmware, by default, there is also a shortcut bar showing across the menu, but it can be turn off by

  • Go to settings -> Phone standy mode -> choose OFF.

Then the shortcut bar will disappear

Moreover, during debranding, we will put the latest generic firmware, so your phone will have the latest firmware (software version) after it's debranded

Please notice debranding will not unlock the Nokia N70.
