    I am buying another Galaxy S10+... Well I want to buy it but it has this hideous loud and blinding ATT boots screen. I put up with that crap years ago but I won' t do it again.
    I read alot of the posts here and I am hoping there are some newer answers out there. How bout people? Can you help me? ❤️

    Easiest solution I think is don't buy the AT&T carrier variant Galaxy S10+, buy the unlocked non-carrier variant. These don't have carrier logos and branding.

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    you can also not get att's samsung phones......they can't be rooted. if you root you can change the splash screen and delete the sound as well. but you need root and US sammy's have snapdragon processors which comes with a locked bootloader.

    i'm have a verizon note 10+ 5G and and verizon has a splashscreen but no sound.

    You need to buy a carrier-unlocked phone to avoid a carrier's logo. That annoying logo and any other carrier-branded software/services will be built into the installed Android operating system on that model. Removing all the branding is possible but it's also a quite involved project. And some carriers, like AT&T make that process even more difficult than others. Or just buy carrier unlocked phones and avoid that situation to begin with. (... although there's also the issue where Samsung tends to brand its phones very heavily, altering menu listings and adding Samsung apps/services that often duplicate existing Android services.)
    But just don't buy your next S10 Plus from AT&T, buy an carrier unlocked S10 Plus from Amazon or Ebay or wherever, and if you want to keep using AT&T as your chosen carrier just be sure to get an AT&T-compatible variant.
