I told them the truth! I am going to india for a month starting in december. Plus i have been with at&t since 2001 or longer. No update after unlock. the phone is the same after unlock. When debrand the phone, you will have the updated phone but it is a high tech process. here is the info: http://www.thegogglesdonothing.com/archives/2 007/08/nokia_n75_firmware.shtml good luck!
