Default Is it possible to remove/replace this piece? (Picture included)

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought my 8900 (replacing my bold) and it came branded with the orange logo on the back under the camera lens cover.

Is it possible to remove this and replace it with a non-branded version? If so, would anyone know how to do this and where to obtain the extra parts?

Please find picture attached if you do not know what I am talking about.

Sure it can be replaced cause mine says T-Mobile...BUT finding the part is another issue. I would imagine it's probably glued on there so you could peel it off

Well i know for a fact, its not attached to the camera...its has a cut out for the camera lens. the piece only covers the flash and wraps around the camera lens.

i hope someone would know where we would be able to obtain this piece...

If it really bothers you that much, get a skin from uniqueskins.com and just use the piece that goes over the camera hole if you don't want to use the entire skin. Less than $10 including shipping. (Use code grad2009 for 20% through 31 May.)
