    My cell phone (samsung a670) has two verizon markings on it. It looks like its just been painted right on the phone. Could I use nail polish remover / mild paint remover to remove these marks without hurting the phones base coat of silver?

    Try using your nails to scratch it off first...use acetone if you have to but paint remover of any kind will probably ruin the finish overall.

    I'd like to get the branding off my phone too. Tried scrapping it off and using nailpolish remover...no luck.

    another point in favor of the moto V551. the cingular logo is on an easily removable sticker. :)

    however, the internet key has the cingular guy on it, so that's not going anywhere. doesn't bother me though.
