    Yes, what's the Rogers' firmware version on your phone right now? If it is later than the generic version provided by Noka based on your product code, you won't be able to unbrand it through the conventional/standard way.

    What ringtone restriction? If you are talking about the mp3 restriction, just convert your mp3 to wma.

    BTW, where did you get it unlocked? How much? Can unlocking also add languages too?

    Thanks.

    How do I know what' my Roger's firmware and also how do I know if mine's a later generic version? Thank you so much!

    Can you also give me the instructions or a link on how to unbrand the conventional/standard way.

    Here's my phone info if it helps, but I don't know how to check Roger's Firmware:

    Nokia 5310 Xpress Music
    V 3.83
    24-10-07
    RM-304
    (c) Nokia
    Variant: 00.00

    Language:
    V 03.63
    07-03-08
    RM-303
    (c) Nokia
    NR0

    Hey guys, I just debranded my Rogers Nokia 5310 yesterday.
    There was an awesome tutorial on how to do it here on Hofo, but I can't seem to find it again.
    Nokia 5310 Xpress Music
    V 3.83
    RM-304
    These same specs.
    Download and install NSU (nokia software updater) and NSS (Nemesis something something) then follow what nemesis tells you to do to install the proper USB drivers for your phone. I had to do this because it had problems being able to detect/scan my phone.
    MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING (it's in the menu, save the settings and contacts and whatever else you want)
    Once you have both installed open up the NSS client and scan the phone.
    There should be an option to read and see the product code. Check off the write enable box and then change the product code accordingly to the colour you have.
    Mine was blue, I found the code through Hofo, but don't remember it off the top of my head.
    Once you've changed the product number, close out of NSS completely.
    Launch NSU and scan your phone. Mine was at FW 3.63, it prompted me to update to 7.something. I agreed. This erases everything off of your phone and installs the new FW and Nokia OS.
    After it's done (which will take like 20 minutes) restore from the backup you made on your memory card.
    My texting took a few minutes to initialize, but works flawlessly now, and the menu is SO much faster, and I can set personalized ringtones and any mp3 song as my ringtone or alarm sound.
    I know this isn't extremely detailed, and if you don't understand any part of it, contact me or find the original tutorial. But trust me, unbranding this phone is so worth it it's not even funny.

    I have tried that procedure but it didn't work , I still have the FW RM-304 V. 3.63. and NSU doesn't help .

    Can someone Please post what are the Product codes for Blue Phones that can make this NSU work ?

    Hey, I have the product code that I used for my Blue rogers nokia 5310.
    0558988
    Are you scanning and properly reading the device? you have to be able to see all the product information to change it. I had the problem of it not scanning properly and I had to re-install NSS to get the proper USB drivers.

    NSS is Nemesis Service Suite, it's a free dl, just google it.
    And NSU is the Nokia Software updater, it's just on the nokia site.
    You can't personalize your ringtones with the branded version. It just ALWAYS says "unable to set as ringtone" or something along those lines.
    Now I have a full weezer mp3 as my ringtone.
