Default [Q] Any ideas on how to remove the AT&T logo from Motomaker Moto X?

The AT&T logo, although the least offensive of all carrier logos (since it doesn't actually make any mention of AT&T), is still a nuisance that spoils the backside of the beautiful customized Moto X from MotoMaker. Anyone have any ideas on how to remove this? It is silkscreened, and not etched, which has me believing that there could be a way to safely remove this without cosmetically affecting the backside.

I remember on my Atrix 4G back in the day (seems eons ago), all you had to do was take a coin and lightly scratch off the AT&T logo on the back, and it would come off as if scratching a lottery ticket. I don't want to take any such risks with my Moto X before hearing your guys' thoughts on this.

It looks like there's a carrier XML file in system ui so until we get a custom ROM the carrier label will remain

I believe OP is talking about the actual back of the phone.

Any luck with a sugar cube or nail polish remover?

I'd be afraid that the sugar cube method would ruin the soft touch coating

Sadly the sugar cube relies on the back being harder than the logo which I doubt is the case with soft touch and I also wouldn't risk nail polish, maybe just spend your spare time rubbing at it.

Would like to know this for Verizon's logo as well... seems like it should be easy, but I don't want to be the guinea pig.

I used 91% Isopropyl alcohol and some q-tips, you will end up with a shadow logo in certain light angles.

Excellent! This looks like repeated application can remove all traces.
