I carrier unlocked my phone ATT Titan on Friday. I tested by installed a T-mobile SIM and i was receiving network signal on the T-mobile network. However, I'm not receiving the 8107 update. Is this not the same as having a debranded phone? I debranded my Samsung Focus and the update followed soon after. Can someone please shed some light on this for me? Thanks

the process of unlocking you mentioned just allows you to use other sim cards on an at&t device . but your device is still an at&t device .

the only true way of unbranding your phone now is to flash an unbranded rom . which i think its still not possible as of now .

DOH!!!!!!! That would explain why my Focus got the update. I flashed it witha custom ROM and then it got the update. So there aren't any custom HTC Titan ROMs?

Have you tried forcing the update through Zune? Search for an update then see if it finds one, If not search again and you will need to unplug your Modem/Lan cable as it searches again, Its a trial and error thing and getting the timing right is the difficult part, I managed to force the 8107 using this method, There should be some threads lurking around somewhere on XDA, Best of luck.
Also remember it is the network carriers who dish out the updates, Maybe if you put an ATT sim back in it may update easier then you can go back to T-mobile etc.

No custom ROMs yet, Don't know about REG access but imagine you would need a dev unlocked device.
