    How Do I Debrand My 8100???

    Advertisement



    My 8100 has an awful "T-Mobile" logo printed in rancid silver lettering printed on the section under the space bar. Given I use O2 and work for said company it's kinda embarrassing having the ridiculous T-Mobile hanging around ... in fairness if it said O2 i'd still want it off. Anyone got any ideas how to remove it???
    I tried using a Sharpie but the ink just wipes away, tried turps (maybe you call it White Spirt in the states ... the stuff to get paint off brushes) and that didn't work ... before I get dramatic and try a Stanley knife thought i'd ask the experts ... HELP!

    I've always seen the "sugar cube trick" recommended. Never tried it myself. Do so at your own risk.

    I suppose the tricky part is finding something just abrasive enough to remove the logo and not scratch the overall finish.
    you could try some kitcken cleaners maybe try it on a different area first.

    Another idea maybe to get a skin like bestskinsever or similar and colour the back of the piece with indelible marker before you stick it on ?
