    If that's the case, then the answer is: that topic isn't discussed here.

    you can use MFI Multi Loader (MML)
    you will also need VSM files..
    This is crucial heart surgery...
    i don't remember any one used MML on OS6 and above+ based devices.
    you will find lot articles on MML and usage of VSM file.
    ...
    remember... its very risky and consider yourself responsible for every thing...

    It can be done

    There are people with working copies of MML 6 on the internet (I'm not one so don't PM me asking).

    Look around you will find someone who does carrier debranding. It will wipe your phone though so make sure you backup all your data first.

    (Phone has to be dumped into service mode before a new VSM file can be flashed with MML)

    Happy searching !

    On a related note, would the warranty be void if the carrier branding is removed?

    If you guys are talking about the splash screen that pops out for few seconds, yes, I think if you try to remove that, it will void your warranty for sure. It is hard to remove and may end up with a phone that is useless in the removing process.

    If you are talking about the branding printed on the bottom plastic, I don't think it will void your warranty. Some companies like Telus, didn't even place their logo down there. The only way someone will you that my phone is Telus based is if they look at the start up splash screen.


    RIM is against removal of the splash screen.

    I am talking about the little portion on the bottom that is located next to the microphone below the SPACE key.

    Mike- Go to the drugstore and buy a bottle of cheap 100% acetone nail polish remover. NOT the fancy stuff with aloe and moisturizers, no fragrance, not acetone-free. 100% ACETONE. It should be pretty much the cheapest one on the shelf. Dip a cotton swab in the acetone and squeeze out the excess- the swab should be wet but not dripping. Gently run the swab across the carrier logo and the logo will dissolve almost instantly. Re-swab a few times to get the bottom plate super clean. There will be a very faint ghost image that is visible only under bright light and at certain angles, but for all intents and purposes the logo will be totally gone.

    I have used this procedure on my AT&T-branded 9900 with complete success. There is NO damage to the plastic plate itself.
