Most mobile phones can be "Un-Branded" or have the providers firmware replaced by the manufacturers own standard firmware.

You will need a data cable. Normally the one that comes with the phone will do it. And you will need some kind of software and the relevant drivers to be able to access the phones files to enable you to change them.

If you really want to do this you can get a mobile phone repair/unlocker to do it for you or if you are brave and happy that you may have an usuable handset if it goes wrong just google un-branding then your handset make and model.
There are lots of helpful Forums out there that will be able to guide you through it all and if things go wrong may possibly get you up and running again. Howardforums is a very good one with lots of useful and helpful info.

My Samsung series 5 5500 age unknown had twice today had a Samsung logo pop up on the screen. We rebooted the tv and it works. What’s is with the logo bouncing around like a screen saver?

That is a screen saver. It usually comes on when you have a fixed picture that isn't moving that has been on the TV for 5 minutes or you have lost the signal. This is to keep the image from burning into the screen.

When I press the lock button on my Tocco lite, My sim provider has put their logo and an advert for a show they are sponsoring as my lock screen picture. I know that it is meant to be just a darker...

Taken from here:

I found the solution! I flashed my phone (not literally. but literally. lol)

After much searching online, the following worked:

EDIT: Note that with this particular firmware version, in your widget bar there will be a few widgets at the very bottom in some Eastern European language, and they seem to be unremovable. Personally I find them totally unobtrusive, especially compared with the Apprentice ad. I'm sure there are firmware versions out there without anything extra like this in them, but I guess that would be a case of trial and error. This one works great for me, plain and simple.
  • Download this which includes the required firmware:
  • Open MultiDownloader.
  • Select "BRCM2133" from radio buttons.
  • Connect phone in "Download Mode" (press volume up + camera + power on) with usb cable and install drivers if need.
  • Press "Port Search".
  • Check "Boot Change" and "Full Download".
  • Press "Boot" button and select folder with boot files from uncompressed firmware (i.e. S5230XEIG6)
  • Select amss, rsrc1, rsrc2 (Use "Low")and Factory FS.
  • Press "Download" and wait.
  • After procedure is finished phone will boot and be ready for use.

I found this solution at another forum. It worked like a charm for me. The ringtones and wallpapers that came with the phone are all still there. The Meteor Apprentice ****E is gone!! :-)

Hope this works for you Ellajee!!

I've now emailed Meteor for confirmation but if it can't be changed then I'll be moving to another provider asap. It's just too irritating and frustrating to have to look at that piece of shameless merchandising on my phone!

Download firmware for a tocco lite such as

Connect tocco via usb cable & put in download mode (Hold down the 'Volume down' key,hold in camera & power on) screen should then say download,

Open multiloader ,select the 2nd box MSN2675...,then select full download,select boot and search for bootfiles from the firmware files you downloaded,do the same fof amss,rsrc1,rsrc2 and factory fs,leave the rest as they are,then port search,then download,DO NOT TOUCH AGAIN THE PHONE UNTIL ALL COMPLETE

Ensure your tocco has good charge in battery before starting as its important it doesn't power off during download,keep it connectes until message appears saying all files complete and phone reboots,

You should now have a phone running the newest samsung firmware and no network branding logos

No picture on screen after 1 second

Try this. Go to your tools menu, look for something like power saver or display off and change the duration that the screen stays on.

Change screen saver picture

The QT-6100 screen saver is the same as the QT-6000. Allocate the screen logo in Scanning System. Create a bitmap image that is 800x600 and send it to the QT using CV-31. Flag clear the terminal and set the option in Display Control to show the logo at clerk sign off.
