    Looks like it is a next generation 4G service of some type. You should check with your service provider to see if they are actually providing that service or if they are running "teaser" promotions.

    I woiuld guess that is the service they are providing and if so it appears to be quite speedy.

    Please explain in a bit more detail what you mean by debrand. Is it a splash screen you want to remove or bloatware installed by the carrier? Or do you want to unlock a phone that is locked to a particular provider?

    Please also indicate the OS version you are running as well as the provider your Galaxy 3 is "branded" to.

    Bloatware are applications users don't want or need, but the providers insist on loading onto phones in the hope that users will subscribe to services, buy hardware, software, services, etc.

    A Splashscreen is, for example, when you phone is turned off and you start it up. The provider's logo may be displayed for several moments or you may see a screen like you posted the picture of.

    From what I am reading Samsung doesn't make it easy to change the splashscreens. You wuld have to access and change at the kernel level. This may point you at a possible method.
