    Unbranded & Unlocked Pearl - Available?

    Advertisement



    Hello all!

    Does anyone know if an unbranded & unlocked Pearl is currently available? I don't like cellular phone company branding on my devices, so typically by them unbranded & unlocked.

    If there are no unbranded Pearl devices currently available, can the OS be changed (flashed/flexed) to remove any cell phone carrier branding; perhaps using a RIM stock OS, if available?

    Basically, I would like to get a Pearl, but have no trace of carrier branding on the device itself, or within the OS.

    Any insight would be kindly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    There's no unbranded pearl. You could take off the logo but that's about it. The OS will always have the brand.

    What's the deal with people and branding? I don't understand.

    All:

    Thanks for the info. Will continue looking for the unbranded, and unlocked, Pearl.

    Wolwol, if possible, is there a web address you can give that might point to where one can purchase the unbranded Pearl online?

    Thanks in advance.

    I was browsing through craigslist and saw someone selling an unbranded one for $275 brand new... but that was here in NY. Maybe if you look on eBay/craigslist you will find one.
