hello

I want to buy the samsung i9000 galaxy s. At the moment, there are NO i9000 available here in my country. (just the very expensive )
but the t-mobile branded are available.

my question is: where is the difference between branded t-mobile and the normal phone. is it JUST the start and end screen? how about the updates? do I have to get the updates from t-mobile? or do I get the updates from samsung.
if it is just the startup and end screen I'll buy branded one!

some other question: does samsung produce a lot of updates??
HTC desire is great. they send a lot of updates.... but I still prefer the i9000

thx!

Hardware is mostly the same. The main difference is price: Branded is cheaper. Its normally locked by "Brand"="Cell Operator", providing for less price making of usage in COp interests.
Unbranded is otherwise- unlocked and free to use. Normally lock information is stored in HARDSPL memory.
On google you will find all ways how to de-brand your device

In my case. The branded isn't locked by the cell operator. (because there is no such operator here in my country)
and the branded are more expensive. (but just 1-3%)

so that means. ONLY the startup and the shutdown screen are different?
And the updates are delivered by samsung? (So I don't have to wait for updates from the firm which have branded the phone..)

thanks
