the company i work for supplies field service engineers a 9700 bold. they have a huge corp contract with vodafone uk, with a vodafone sim data card (no voice, just data).
My work location is in italy.

i have just unlocked my bold 9700 with the mepd/mep2 code. All went fine, the sim card lock is now disabled,
i am now using a vodafone.italy sim card with a smart300 contract, both voice and data now work fine.
In my device i have the following OS installed:
can i install unbranded os? with what benefits if any?
