    Removing Operator Logo From Case?

    Advertisement



    I want to take the crappy Cingular logo off the case, has anyone done this and if so what did you use? I'm afraid to try the usual suspects (goo-b-gone, petrol, etc) as I'm afraid they'll haze the gloss. I figure I gave them enough money for the phone and the plan that I don't need to be advertising for them for free.

    If you really don't like the Cingular Logo, sandpaper works wonders. Of course there's that gloss issue you were talking about. Maybe you could completely sand the entire thing down and repaint it. Make sure you add a good coat of clear-coat on it for extra protection... Or maybe you could get an unlocked T-Mobile pearl and do free advertising for them instead. hahahaha

    I used the old "Sugar Trick" and it worked fine for me removing the TMobile logo from the bottom of the phone...

    Sugar Trick:

    Tape off your keypad and the bottom of your phone underneath the logo so you don't get sugar in the keypad or the microphone.

    Get some sugar.

    Wet ur finger, dip it in sugar.

    Rub

    And Rub

    And Rub

    And Rub

    Eventually it will start to wear off and then be gone with no damage done to the actual housing of the device.

    And no, I am not being held liable if you don't tape off your keypad and get sugar all underneath it.

    Sounds like signs of a mis-spent youth - anything you want to share? I'll try it though - disclaimer duly noted!

    Thanks for enlightening me on the "Sugar Trick." I'll have to wait on that one though.

    Also, you might want to get some scratch remover, to restore the gloss when you're done!

    Oh, you could also get some kind of rubber/silicon skin to cover it up... My Seidio cover works well...

    well, considering the Cingular Pearl has the grey spot too, I'd be really careful...just cover it up with a skin - like kendrick says!
