Welcome to the BBForums.

Yes, you will see that branded carrier on startup, and that cannot be removed or changed with unlocking, OS upgrades etc. It is there.

Welcome to the forums. Carrier branding doesn't change anything on the device. What are you worried about with it?

Nope not possible. It only shows for a moment and after a while you won't even notice. On most devices the bottom cover can be changed. Check the link in my sig for that.
