Not recommended. Has been known to scratch up the device.

Cover the logo with a piece of black paper. Put your phone in a photocopier and photocopy. The copy will then come out with the logo blanked out. Transfer all your settings to copy phone and use as before.

Sorry couldn't resist a bit of nonsense. You could buy a skin for the phone from seidio. I use the rubberized one and it hides the logo and of course protects the phone.

It the AT&T logo SO bad that you would rather have a ugly scratched up area to replace it.

I had a frined who was able to remove the logo on a phone a year or two ago but he tried with his Curve and ruined the surface finish BIG TIME!

I did, and it works as advertised. The key, as noted, is the use of the toothpaste as a polish.

If you try to remove the logo and it goes awry, you can replace the case.

That is, if it is really worth the trouble...
