Thinking of buying an E71

My T-mobile contract ends at the start of April and I'm thinking of moving to the 3 network and getting an E71 (currently have an N95).

I don't know if this is a stupid question but I've debranded my N95 and updated the firmware- will I be able to do this with a 3 branded phone? I'm not really bothered about all of the 3 branding but I just don't want to get left behind in terms of the firmware versions!

Thanks for your help everyone and sorry if it's a stupid question!

I have a Vodafone branded one, which has a few irritations (Bookmarks you cant delete etc) but is actually so stable and bug-free that I've not bothered looking into de-branding and using a generic ROM.

There's nothing in the newer ROMs that I think "oh, I want that!"

I picked up a Three branded E71 just today for a good price, and I've just debranded it. All seems fine. Just need to get it unlocked now.
Therefore, whoever thinks he is standing secure should take care not to fall.


buying, e71, thinking
