Hello everyone,
before all sorry for my english.
I wanna buy a Z1c but atm I found only a carrier branded version. There is a way to debrand? I really hate the branded software. European device.
Thanks

Which country are you located? If you buy from Sony Mobile there wasn't any carrier and its Unlock. So, no branding at all. It just came with Sony preloaded software.

Otherwise, you could get it here and shipped to you.

Same issue for me.
I've ordered an Z1 Compact and I got a TIM branded device, now I need to understand if I should ask for a replacement or I can debrand without any risk.

You could flash an unbranded firmware to get rid of any software branding. Just make sure your device doesn't have a SIM lock or similar: dial *#*#7378423#*#* (*#*#service#*#*), then go to Service info, SIM lock.

Read (!! not just browse) the Resource Thread for further instructions.
