Question [Q] Logo WaterMark on my Galaxy S5 . How to get rid off?

Hello Friends, I got this Samsung Galaxy S5, its from T-Mobile, and reported as Lost... Seems like the phone was taken from the exhibition part on a Store....

What happen is that there is like a Logo WaterMark on the screen, very very soft, hard to see, but its there saying: rhapsody UNradio

I want to know how to get rid off that please!!...
I did a hard reset, installed a stock rom, and still there!

Thanks in advanced!

Im confused you say the phone was reported as lost, by who? are you actually the "legal" owner of this phone?

^ My guess is that he bought a lost/stolen T-Mobile display model hence the screen burn in and logo.

I bought it from a guy, so, I didnt buy it on a store. So, when I check IMEI it says "stolen". You know...

The point is the Logo watermark on the screen. If I put it on download mode there is no watermark, so, I dont know if I need to delete something from the system..

this probably isn't the best place to ask for advice regarding a fenced handset.

Hand it in to your local police. You wont get any help for lost/stolen tech on here - or any help for any illegal activity for that matter.
