    Sorry man, if it's branded Cingular the start up screen will stay Cingular. Changing OS won't make it go away. I think that's part of the actual firmware.

    ok cool, also, they say it takes anywhere from 2-48 hours for the blackberry service to switch over cuz when i got to add my email accounts it doesnt let me...so what i did was go onto my cingular site and resend the service books and now the email works..so i guess this is good temp fix until the port completes!!!

    thanks again for your help!!

    ya, once your service switches over, the 'carrier' name on the home screen will change...but as for the cingular popping up when you reboot the phone, it will ALWAYS be there, no matter what OS you have on the device. its called branding.

    Do you have the TMO account yet? Can you long on the TMO site?
