    I'm afraid you're gonna have to take that baby apart and from what I can see on your profile you have one if not the easiest device to take apart and change its housing. I've opened my previous 8310 about (no lie) 30 something times to clean/ change housings...etc
    What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?

    Yea I know how to take it apart no problem with that, I had bought a new housing, the pice below the spacebar where it says verizon or sprint for example. I was wondering if it is possible to remove those labels?

    You can always buy one without the carrier's name on it. They have all colors

    Is there anyway to get the names off besides just purchasing a new one

    Well, I would probably say by either trying to dissolve it or scraping it I suppose.

    Use a very fine sand paper. Or paint over it. Or put a sticker over it. May I ask why you want if off?

    I got the new housing an orange one and the lower piece says sprint on it and I just wanted to have it gone for personal preference. Wouldn't the sandpaper dull the paint
