can anyone tell me if this phone have windows live messenger as default installed...?
For those who have just bought their phone or intend to get a new one, this is the link you need to debrand your phone. It will upgrade your phone from Gen1 to Gen2 (do install Mr. Pigfish first to confirm that your phone is indeed Gen1 or you will brick it), and install Android 2.3.3 (CM7). It is really quite easy and CM7 is a very solid and stable ROM for me.
Hi there, I have a ZTE Blade from Orange in the UK. I am having trouble sending SMS messages when in 3G although I can receive them. They send ok when in 2G only mode so not sure what might be causing this. Also, it won't connect to the app market, it keeps saying it can't connect and to try again later. I have an active data connection and WIFI as well. Any ideas on how to fix this would be much appreciated.

Recently purchased this phone from Orange UK £94 +£20 top-up. Debranded and rooted and installed Cyanogen Mod 7 RC 4 (Gingerbread 2.3.3). Really impressed with this phone great screen (LCD Version) and plays Angry Birds ,no problem. I find that the battery life has improved with this installed mod, although still needs charging
every day, but then my iPhone 3GS is the same. Would give this phone 8 out of 10 with current mod.
Excellent phone rooted and running cyanogenmod 7. HTC HD2 long gone. Very very happy

Hasnaat, 22 Mar 2011Is it really so easy process to unlock, debrand and 2.2 update?@Hasnaat
yes. i bought an Orange San Francisco from Argos in the UK yesterday. today it is unlocked and running debranded Android 2.2 (Japanese Jellyfish 9). just follow the instructions at android[dot]modaco[dot]com.
they are not official. they are builds of android that clever people have built from the source code.
[deleted post]Thanks for guidng in detail
but if it is not G1/Gen1 then can't we debrand it at all or some other way to debrand?
I bought this phone for a very low price, originally £99.99 from Tescos minus £20 in vouchers, I got it for £79.99. There is an offer on at the moment where you get £10 off any item when you spend £50 or more online. I digress, on with my experiance.
I found the overall build quality of the phone to be above adverage, it is plastic and so is the screen cover. I do however find that the phone becomes almost slippy with a build up of fingerprints, so be careful when holding it.
My version of the phone came with the LCD instead of the OLED, which I was fine with as I have only ever used LCD-screened phones.
I have had problems with the battery, obviously the more apps you have running the quicker the battery life discharges so I have downloaded a task "killer" or manager from the Android Market. I find that I have to charge the phone every day and that I have to leave it on overnight because it is also my morning alarm, which does not sound if the phone is switched off.
I have unlocked and de-branded this handset and have used both 2.1 and 2.2 with it, and I can safetly say that 2.2 will drain the battery off quicker than 2.1, so you may want to stay away from that. Please do not try to de-brand your handsets as you may "brick" them.
As with any phone, especially touchscreens, I have bought a screen protector from eBay (two for £1.90) please, please, please buy a screen protector!
I am very impressed with this phone and would rate it 7 out of 10. The bad points being battery life.
Hasnaat, 22 Mar 2011Is it really so easy process to unlock, debrand and 2.2 update?Unlocking is extremely simple. Debranding and/or upgrading the OS is only moderately difficult, actually instructions to do so are very detailed, all you need to do is follow the steps exactly and you'll have no issues.
