Are Mobiles bought from virgin mobile uk and tesco mobile Branded?

I want to buy a sony ericsson w880i (i had one before and loved it but got an iphone and well hate it now, so im selling my iphone and getting a w880i), i can get them on Tesco mobile for £79.99 and Virgin also £79.99, but i want to unlock it but dont want all the crap like "Virgin Mobile" or "Tesco" Coming up when i turn it on.

why dont you look into the W890i, to me, it seems alot better than the W880i. the sound is a bit louder too.

chances are, if you buy the phone from an operator, it'll come branded. you can try flashing it with davinci or other parties to see if it takes out the operator's start up logo.

They are branded and will have the imposed software.

They are also locked to that network so you will need to have this barrier removed.

Software can be disabled but caution must be used as you could frag the whole system.
