Removing Logo, ( Not Debranding )

N95 8GB

I thought I would show what happens when you take all advise for granted on forums.

I can't remember if it was on these forums or another 95 forum but I read how to remove the printed logo, Vodafone in my case off a N95 black.

The advise simply was to use nail varnish remover and cotton buds, well it does work to a fair degree but it does leave a mark.

It looks a lot, lot, lot worse in the photo then it is but I thought I would share my efforts or stupidity.

Ouch that does look bad. I wouldn't have tried the nail varnish remover primarily due to the rubberised/soft touch coating on the back. The nail varnish method is more for bare plastics without any coatings, for future reference At least you'll be glad to know that replacement rear covers are cheap [edit: maybe not cheap but reasonable, just realised it was the n95 8gb]

You live and learn

I must say that nail varnish does seem harsh.
I just replaced mine with an original Nokia spare from here:-

Takes less than 2 minutes to fit and requires no tools or skill (luckily in my case).
Good luck!

I agree. I would've just gotten a new back cover if they're cheap. The last phone I had that had the provider's label on it was my Philips Diga, and that's going back quite some time!

Thanks for the replies,

As I said, the photo is lying in this case but no not a bright moment of mine.

I will live with it, I can't see it anyway, phone is in a flip case anyway.

Thanks Ian for the link.
