    I bought an unlocked Nokia Lumia 930 and it has Telstra Branding all over the image, it also is restricted to only Telstra approved updates so i can't get the latest update with Cortana.

    Can i download a full firmware for this phone and re-flash it with a vanilla image not branded with any carrier?

    proof that it works:

    How about just signing up for the dev preview and getting all of the Cortana goodies that way?

    thanks for the advice, I would still like to remove the Telstra branding as I am with Vodafone, but at least now I have Cortana and the latest preview firmware!

    I have another 930 that is unbranded, and I was trying to trick the Nokia Software recovery tool into thinking the Telstra one was the unbranded phone to get it to load the same version I have on the Unbranded phone, but it was too smart for me and detected when I swapped phones!

    The 930 is an expensive phone otherwise i would just tell you to go ahead and experiment lol but I will try to find an answer for you... Maybe somebody else already tried it and posted it somewhere lol
