    Yes, you will still be able to use UMA on Orange's network, but no other... in other words you can not put in a AT&T or T-Mobile sim card and expect it to work... unless you know enough about using the Engineering screenings, which is not recommended by most users (I'd never attempt it).

    Thanks for that. I asked as I didnt want to do the engineering screen stuff if I didnt have to. Been looking at doing it on the wife's 8520(unlocked and unbranded) so we can get the UMA on hers.

    So as long as I dont de-brand my 9700 I'm fine?
