Default Looking to buy an un-branded 8100

Please Login to Remove!

Can anyone recommend an online seller for an un-branded, unlocked version of the 8100, I bought the cingular 8100 at full retail but would prefer to get the black case without t-mobile 's logo and firmware. Thanks

I know of no unbranded BlackBerry devices in existence. All devices have some sort of branding in the software (usually the startup screen), even if the housing is not branded.

The Aussie Pearls have no branding. Nothing on the startup screen either. Heres a picture of mine.



Let me know if you are interested. I have sold a few unbranded and unlocked blackberries on these forums before. Price wont be cheap though as you guys get them really cheap in the USA. Expect to pay around $550 shipped depending on the exchange rate.

That looks more de-branded than unbranded... What does your startup screen show?

What do you mean de-branded? Its basically the same as the t-mobile version but without the logo on the bottom. That means un-branded.

The startup screen shows nothing. No carrier logos, nothing.
