I'm new here, and it seems like the place to come for some help!
Just received my new 3-branded K800i and I love it. For once, I prefer the pre-installed icons from the network, to the generic Sony Ericsson ones.
Because of this, I don't really wanna flash the firmware on my phone - but as a last resort, I might.
Basically, on the standby screen, my right selection key shows an ugly 'Planet3' button - is there anyway to disable this, or make it a shortcut for something else?

I also like to know how to get rid of planet 3. There is already a shortcut under planet 3. When i hang up i get online by misstake.

You need to flash with generic firmware, search and there are loads of posts on this - including in the k800 firmware thread.

But I like the icons on the 3-version of the firmware.

They will disappear too, and be replaced by the generic ones if you flash the firmware. You can't keep the cake and eat it...

i read on some forums that you can disable the annoying planet 3 scrolling banner during standby by going to "settings/display/.." they said there is an option there in which you can turn on/off the banner?.. im not quite sure because i already debranded my 3 phone. and when i go to the display setting i found nothing.. maybe you guys try to find it out?

Isnt it possible to change the homepage at settings, so the site u wanna have will pop up instead of planet3...

most probably you've already found out how to disable the banner in the k800i, but just in case, go to Settings/general/instant viewer and deactivate.
I just received it today and I already love it!
