    So sanding with sugar on the finger takes the logo off. Somehow seems too easy.

    And to T-Mo they probably want to have the law changed to make such an act criminal.

    Re: pearl beautification

    I think some BB 8100 where mad at different times. When I tryed sugar sanding as well as the penny trick nothing seamed to work. Its almost I have a very small layer of clear coat over my T-mobile brand. In one place you can see a hairline scratch and not a mark on the T-mobile brand. So I'm thinking Tmo caught on to the logo comming off and changed the way they apply it or something. Just my thoughts since some have reported the logo comming off with there finger nail and other scratching the hell out of it and the logo is still there. I guess I'll just live with T-mobile on mine for a while untill it gets its custom paint job!

    i'm sure they were all branded at the same time. the clear coat is to prevent flaking off after contact with oil and moisture. if the sugar on your finger doesn't do it (no reason it wouldn't), a sugar cube will.

    You might also run the risk of scratching the phones clear coating during the logo removal.
