if we buy pearls from online and they are listed as unlocked, do all of them have a provider branding?

i've been searching the forum and found this thread to be interesting blackberryforums.com/general-8100-series-discussion/57701-make-t-mobile-pearl-act-like-cingular-pearl.html

does that mean if i get a cingular os it'll change the startup too? can i change my startup from tmobile to cingular?

Someone else already said something like this, I'll have to paraphrase it. "Once a Cingular/T-mobile, always a Cingular/T-mobile". Nothing you can do.

This is what i think..correct me if i'm wrong..
The branding logo & some more information are stored onto some sort of a loader that always stays irrespective of the OS you load onto the phone...

This loader (bootloader) cannot be change i think... this also stores the MEP file, which if can be change, then unlocking any of a Blackberry will be as simple as loading a new bootloader....

just a quick question.... can that actually be done?
