    I have a french Orange-provided N70 on which Orange has added a kind of
    lateral 'launcher' overlay, a la macOSX, with tiny useless icons that
    trigger various shortcuts. This overlay also imposes a smaller banner
    where the time and signal details are definitely unreadable.

    I found that by selecting tools, parameters, wait mode I can deactivate
    this "orange welcome" thing: the N70 then warns me that it has to
    restart, and indeed after restart the overlay has disappeared.

    Until the next restart, that is. When I switch it off and later on, the
    orange thing comes back.
    This is so frustrating that for now I don't switch it off but just
    choose a "disconnected mode", but this still uses power :-(

    Is there a trick that would suppress this autostart thing definitely??

    TIA!

    You could try reinstalling your firmware, you can donwload the tool
    from http://www.nokia.com/A4176089
    This *might* help.

    Ah, good idea, I didn't remember this "software update" possibility.
    As it requires a windows machine I have to think about it though (I have
    a mac; this may mean I've to install the tools on a virtual pc machine
    inside it...)
    Thanks indeed!

    If it's any use, I tried this with my E61, but the banner remains?
    I'll watch with interest to see if there are any other ideas.
