Hillarious comments I can't stop giggling you guys.. Lol lol.... :)

Seriously, I'm using incredible 2 atm from and I plan to get this. Definitely buying it overseas and use it under local carrier, Indonesia that is.

In case of incredible 2 verizon logo looks cool on top, I think this one will hold me up rethinking about buying it.. Yes, it's ugliest possible place to put your ad.

Sprint, perhaps for better choice?

Imagine if your television had a cable company logo branded on it. Or if your car had a BP or Shell Oil logo on the front. Ha!

that way every time you hit the home button you can see who is ripping you off.

Verizon on the back of the phone is okay. But Verizon on the Home Button? That's not cool.

Expect a new market in Note 2 homescreen buttons to suddenly open up on Ebay.

I actually think it looks quite good, it gives the phone an extra detail touch

This is a deal-breaker for me. I would never buy a phone with a company logo in front except for the phone brand itself.
