Default Removing or Hiding the text on Main Screen

Please Login to Remove!

hey everyone this is my first post and my first question

I was wondering how do I go about removing or hiding the text "T-Mobile" or in my case "Data Connection Refused" off of the main screen. Because it gets in the way of my wallpaper. Thanks

To get rid of data connection refused you need a data plan. If you are not going to purchase a data plan then go into Options >Mobile Network >and set "data services" to "off" (you may need to turn the wireless radio off then back on to get rid of it after making the change.) That will get rid of data connection refused. You will still have Tmobile (that won't go away.)

You can also contact T-Mobile and ask them to put the Blackberry Add-On so you can receive picture messages and it will get rid of the "Data Connection Refused" and show GPRS(gprs) or EDGE(edge). You can create themes to get rid of the test as well but that's alittle more complicated. You'll have to check the Media section for the theme editor sticky
