    I recently popped in my AT&T SIM card into an unlocked Sony Ericsson
    T616. The phone is a branded Cingular phone, and I am able to
    send/receive messages, and make calls, and access mmode. The only
    problems that I have with the phone are more or less easthetic, and I
    was hoping that somebody could help me resolve these problems.

    Since I use AT&T, I would much rather prefer the link in the Menu to
    say "mMode" instead of "Cingular", change the second menu link
    (Internet Services) from pointing to the Cingular Homepage, to point
    to something else, and when shutting down the phone, I want to remove
    the Cingular logo. If there is some kind of way to update the phone
    with the AT&T default configuration, that would be great. I set up
    the mMode per the instructions on the AT&T website.

    Thanks for any leads or information on how to do this. I apologize
    for cross-posting, but I'm not sure if people check multiple groups,
    and which group this message applies to.

    If you want to de-brand the phone fully, you're going to have to flash both
    parts of the firmware and reset the GDFS. Personally I wouldn't use
    Div/Terminator for this job due to problems in the past, but would use
    Twister instead. Not cheap though.

    They will flash you to the latest firmware for $25 and for an extra $5
    remove all Cingular customization. If you have the latest firmare, I am not
    sure if they have a seperate charge for just the uncustimizing or not. I
    would think likely not since it has to be flashed to have the branding
    removed anyway. From what I have read, they are very reliable and very fast.
    I will either be sending mine out soon or buying a terminator dongle to do
    it myself. Good luck!
