    I just recently bought a new Samsung SGH-A707 from AT&T/Cingular and one thing is bugging me. I can't seem to get rid of the banner on the Homescreen that says "AT&T". I would like to change it or just remove it all together but for the life of me I can not find the setting. Does anybody know where this setting is? For some reason is really bugs me. :P Appreciate any help you all could provide.

    Unfortunately man, there is no setting that will allow us to remove or change said banner. Nobody has even found anything in BitPim that relates to the banner either, but if I find out someone has figured it out I'll post back.

    Yea I figured, since I spent like an hour on it but I remember on my RAZR somethings where in weird places so I just wanted to double check. Thanks for the reply. Do you know if that's an AT&T thing or just a Samsung thing? Just curious.

    It's a Samsung thing. It's in the firmware, i'm hoping they release an update that addresses this, at least let us change what the banner says.

    Use a headset and you will only see the screen just before you dial a number. Why tilt at windmills? Do you expect a carrier to issue an anonymous telephone?

    Considering there are very few functions of the phone that can be done through the headset, your theory is flawed as is your attempt at being funny.

    Of course we don't expect a carrier to issue an anonymous phone, whatever that is, but we do expect that we can at the very least customize the banner as I've been able to do on every other phone I've ever owned.
