Hello peep - BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ has a TON of great information, including this thread:

How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ

Please note that this will not change the start up (splash) screen, or remove an IT Policy.

Good luck!

A wipe using JL_cmder is what you need, and follow that with reloading the OS.

Read the post above, and hundreds elsewhere on this forum asking the same question. No, absolutely not. The branded carrier startup screen is there to stay, regardless of wiping, OS upgrades or unlocks.

Or, depending on your provider, you can just call them and get an unlock code for free.

Nope. The mobile is from the UK. My wife called orange and they said by the 29th of this month: August '08 I should get it. But I just cant wait that long. To me that's like next year.

Then you need to purchase an unlock code for the device from a vendor--if you can't wait another 19 days to have it unlocked for free by the carrier.

Try HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center , although i will warn you that i believe non-North American devices can take 10-14 days to get the unlock code. Although, whoever you purchase the unlock code from will need to give you that specific turnaround.

Good luck.
