Hello everybody,

My BB bold came from madrid and has the client 'movistar' branding on start-up.
Is there any links to walkthroughs that will lead me through the steps to de-brand it?

Also my email won't come through the mail app that came with the bold, is there any way I can make it work with them?
I have tried using a differnt bold and the mail would come through, just not on my one unfourtantly.

Thanks for the help

The flash opening screen cannot be changed as it is built into the firmware. Sorry.

I am not sure about your second question so could you provide a bit more info. What address(s) are you trying to set up? If it is that the carrier supplied (movistar) email address, once you leave that carrier, it is lost forever. You cannot take it with you when you change carriers.

Untrue, you can debrand the bold and change the flash screen.

It can be done. We do not talk about it here on this forum as it is illegal.

Not with any legally distributed software.

The branding of the device has nothing to do with this.
