    For some reason, Orange has removed the active stanby option from control
    panel\tools\settings\phone\standby mode.
    As a result, "active standby" is always on (a bit like active desktop on
    Windows) and I find it rather ugly (blurred image, useless keys that I can't
    edit any more as the option has been removed).
    Would any one know of a way to get this option back ?
    Thanks.

    Yes it will. Costs about 15-20 to get it reflashed, You may have to
    post it to someone though (I charge 15 and that includes the return
    postage).

    yeah. What operators use little or no branding. I don't mind a few
    screensavers etc. but I don't want a phone that's completely different to
    what Nokia want it to be like. Vodafone???

    Voda and orange appear to use lock out some options. Not sure about the
    others, but certainly voda and orange are the ones complained about the
    most.

    Last time I checked, no-one had the N70 firmware. It isn't on the Griffin,
    Twister or UFS support sites yet.

    Possibly, but it also appears that it's not on Nokia Service Point either.
    I'd be careful and make sure it's what it says it is before using it to
    flash an N70.

    I never said it was new or anything else for that matter. The firmware
    simply isn't available whether its from official sources (Nokia Service
    Point) or unofficial.

    All I'm saying is that if even a level four service centre doesn't have
    access to the firmware, you need to be careful that what you've got is
    actually N70 firmware and not something else renamed.
