Many U.S. carriers are no longer branding their logo on the body of new handsets. The nation's largest carrier, Verizon, was considered the worse of the bunch at one time, with its distinctive check mark symbol stamped on the rear cover of many different models.

Good riddance. Brand recognition is no excuse for displays of ostentatiousness.

All these carrier logos are stuck in the late 1990's.

I don't care about carrier branding on the phone (unless with the iPhone which never had it), and in a way kind of like it as it guarantees the phone (especially for non-'techies') to be compatible with the carrier.

Samsung told them no carrier logos because there is no samsung logo on the front anymore so they want samsung on the back not a Verizon or AT&T logo.
