    if i am on tmobile and i buy the 8800 from cingular.....

    what do i do to go about getting the cingular brands away from the operating system?

    is that possible?


    kind of like unlocking vendor themes i guess....... just trying to make sure that if i do buy the phone i dont have to look at that silly orange man all day.

    you would have to unlock the phone first and I dont think Cingular would do it unless you are there customer (and for 3 months)

    My brother has been a customer for 10 years. He will be upgrading and giving to me after he unlocks the phone. He is content with the 8700c now....

    So I got that part down. I just need to figure out if it is possible to get the other vendor themes or not

    if you can get it unlocked you should be ok.
    even with out unlocking my 8700c i was able to instally another carrier's OS on it to get the Zen theme. and that came with other carrier's themes.
    I was running an Orange and Rogers OS for a long time until Cingular released their latest OS in November

    Has cingular even been around for 10 years? unless if you count at&t wireless, it hasn't.

    Lol, wow.

    I guess the point I was making is that the 3 month requirement doesn't matter in my situation.

    But you are right, cingular has not been around for 10 years.

    Well, just to set the record straight, Cingular was Southwestern Bell wireless before they did the name change. And that has been around a lot longer than 10 years.

    Cingular was created from a number of regional carriers.

    Anyway, you can load another carrier's OS but it's a moot point. The logo on the face and the splash screen will always be the same. You'd get the same effect just by loading another theme.
