Looking at buying the Blackberry 8520 from play.com but have one question.

Found 16th Jun 2010
Does it come with any branding on the phone, I don't want it all over the casing! A few pics i've seen show it on the bottom of the phone, but the picture from play.com doesn't show it.

Has anyone bought one from there? thanks

the likelihood is that it probably does (but i havent brought a phone from play.com)
but judging by other phones it probably has a small operator logo at the bottom of the handset and that's it

loooool ok
we got there in the end looooool

my blackberry 9700 had orange written on the bottom, managed to scratch that off pretty easily lol but still comes up with orange on start up etc that doesnt bother me. So I assume the curve would be similar

here you go might get quite scratched trying to get this off

thanks for the info everyone, but i don't think i'll risk trying the scratching lol

if there's anyone that's bought one from play please let me know if there's a logo on it!

Orange is pritned with like a thick acrylicy type of logo as far as i have seen so far, tmobile is like your standard thin logo paint which is so shallow using a penny would have more damage to the bezel than trying to get Orange off

Couldn't you take it back if it has a branding on the phone and say it isn't as described - the pictures on the website have no t-mobile branding on them.

It does have t-mobile branding on, ordered one two weeks ago.

it states in the title though "t mobile" so im sure they play could get out of it that way if there was a dispute
