    Any way to change this / remove / transfer the branding version on a 9100? The replacement phone I bought recently is technically "unlocked" and is the specific model phone that I was looking for. However, due to the "branding version" the phone only allows traffic on bands 1, 4, and 8. If I want to use it on my current provider (AT&T) I need a different branding version for bands 1, 2, 5, and 6/19). I have two old 9100s that I have been using for parts which have a branding version for Vodaphone-UK and one for Cingular. Both have the firmware imprint for those bands. I tried "switch devices" in the BB Desktop software which doesn't transfer that little gem and haven't been able to find a way to do it in BBSAK either. Am I missing something obvious? Please help? Thanks!

    The branding is hard flashed, and impossible to change.

    So there is no way to change the bands your phone operates on? Any other work around?

    Sell it and buy one with the right bands.

    Other than that, no.
