Well, if the cover is really metal, then you could try using a paint remover and a soft cloth. If the cover is actually plastic then probably the best way woud be to use a light abrasive, like the plastic polish that you can buy to take the scratches out of a mobile phone plastic screen cover. You might try an experiment on small part of the cover in a non-obvious place first to see what happens.

Default remove t-mobile brading

I read in some german forum it can be done with a cube of sugar!! I thought it was a joke but then I tried it and it worked :lol: Now I just have an MDA without T-Mobile

Yes a cube of sugar as you get it in some countries with a cup of coffee! You take this cube of sugar and you scratch it over the T-mobile branding! don't worry, sugar is too weak to leave marks in the cover but its strong enough to remove the colored branding!!! Note: This also works to take away the Orange branding on some mobile phones....

Cheers

Yes! The sugar cube worked great! The prints are gone and there are no scratches what so ever!
