    Welcome to dupax21

    That particular BlackBerry Bold 9650 device from Verizon, is "branded" from Verizon.

    If a mobile carrier is selling a BlackBerry device from said company, they would brand their company's logo on the BlackBerry device.

    You can, however, unlock the BlackBerry device to work with other mobile carrier's wireless network.

    Please note: to bring your BlackBerry Bold back to factory settings, go to:

    Options>Security>Security Wipe

    Be very careful here, once you check off Emails, Contacts, etc. / User Installed Applications / Media card, then Enter "blackberry" to confirm wipe.

    This information will be lost, never recoverable, so please pay close attention.

    Thank you.

    The splash screen that shows the Verizon logo when the device reboots is not removable, even if the device is used on a different network.

    And after a factory reset, you can unlock your device by going here; FreeMyBlackBerry.com. It is a reputable site that I have personally used.

    Unlocking Blackberry Bold 9650 Verizon phones

    You don't need to remove the Verizon logo if you want to use it with other carrier... all you need is to unlock your Blackberry and by doing it the SIM lock will be removed, your Blackberry can be unlocked by using a unique unlock code and then you can get signal when using other carriers.

    You will also need to change the old CDMA phone number to the number that you are going to use, you can do that by dialing ##000000 and there you can set the phone number that you use with the sim card.

    Removing the logo is called unbranding, and it's not related to the use of the device with other carriers in other countries...

    First option:
    Go to the Options than Security than Security Wipe.
    Once you do this your data will be lost and it’s never recoverable at all.
    Otherwise you can visit your nearest bb store to short out your problem.
