You can only Update the Firmwire I beleive without screwing things up.

Depending on the phone, you can change the firmware to another service providers, mostly on Motorola phones. Pretty much every other phone is locked down.

You can't flash a Symbian-based device. That's really only on Motorola and SE phones.
