I am currently using Optus and would like to upgrade to this ROM, but it is labelled as being a Vodafone ROM. Is this important? Is the ROM locked to the network or are there other issues it may cause if I installed it. Would this be any different from buying a phone from Vodafone then switching networks?

Where do you live and what carrier handles your cell service? –  newuser Mar 25 '11 at 13:38

I've done sort of the reverse -- installed a US T-Mobile ROM to my T-Mobile phone while I had it on the Canadian Rogers network. Since the Legend is also a GSM phone like my Vibrant, I would expect yours to work just as well as mine did. Just make sure you have your SIM card in for the whole process.

"and if you back up your apps/settings (e.g. with Titanium Backup) don't restore any data for the system apps, which might overwrite your current network's data with Vodafone data." If I backup, then install a Vodafone ROM, then restore, wouldn't my Optus settings be saved? –  Casebash Mar 25 '11 at 21:13
    
Good point, I was thinking too much about my case, where I switched carriers and ROMs at the same time. –  Matthew Read Mar 26 '11 at 0:03
