    The Verizon logo on the front of the phone is horrible. :mad: I hate their logo and it looks obnoxious. Is there any possible way to safely remove it without ruining/scratching the phone?

    There have been mentions of sugar based methods, however, I think there is a possibility it will interfere with the touch screen

    Google is your friend.
    There is a method with sugar cubes, as stated above, but I think the logo is too high up on the screen to really effect the touch screen.

    When this was brought up before, I think someone was able to determine that the logo was actually under a thin pane of glass making it nearly impossible to remove it. I might be wrong...

    Yeh if you look closely enough at it, you'll see it's "protected", it wasn't put on to the face of the screen. It's not coming off. I highly suggest you not rub any food product on your phone.

    Verizon's getting smarter....I remember when their logo was nothing more than a little vinyl sticker. Maybe they should redo their logo to make it at least tolerable to look at and we might actually keep it on our phones.

    Yeah, macerate the phone in sugar and rum then serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream. The acids in your stomach will remove the Verizon logo.

    i dont think they put the logo beneith the screen to protect it. i think it was conveniet and cheaper to print it on the black plastic layer.

    Its actually best that the logo is under the top glass. I end up putting half my thumb or finger when swiping down on the notifications bar..... doesn't have touch sensors i know, but if it was painted on top of the glass, then it would eventually fade away and look ragged in the long run.

    Besides the VZW logo isn't too bad. I think it would've been cool if the check was actually red though. Tough luck "screw the system man" folks.

    Maybe you could just darken the underside of a screen protector in that spot.

    That's actually a pretty good idea, and fairly simple. If done right it could look pretty good. Maybe I'll try that with some spare screen protectors I have laying around.

    Great, please post on whether it works! I don't have any spare screen protectors or I'd try it. I was thinking a Sharpie might do it - hopefully the alcohol won't damage the adhesive layer...

    Any luck yet on this?

    AT&T didn't put their ugly logo on the front of the iphone... I find it frustrating that Verizon put their son the front of this.

    I'd love to find some kind of solvent that will just remove it :p

    I'm pretty sure it's been stated before that the logo has been put under the glass making it extremely difficult to remove. I didn't care for it much at first but i don't really even notice it anymore.
