If you're talking about the splash screen that comes up when you first start your BB, no. Even if you load another OS, the provider's logo will remain.

Try the sugar cube trick. There's a link for removing it.

Good luck!

I would be careful with the sugar cube trick because it's good for matte metallic finishes like on the i-mates and Qteks, but the Pearl has a shiny plastic finish, so you are likely to scratch up that area in the process.

Sting_ray, I was wondering why you keep posting threads without SEARCHING first?

did the penny trick....it removed the logo, but also left a little bit of a scar. Since it's black finish...its not really noticeable unless you look at it from certain angles.

Simplest way is to break out your Dremel tool. Otherwise, use the Forum's search feature or expect someone else to do it for you.

C'mon, am I the only one that uses Steel Wool? It will take the logo out and keep the shine.

wow... did it actually take out the logo?

I looked closesly at mine and it is not simply painted on, It was somehow embossed with a heated iron (not unlike branding a horse with a hot iron).

wonder if anyone sells an unbranded plastic cover.
