    Has anyone removed the sticker on the back of the phone that really should be hiding somewhere in a removable part of a phone?

    Hey there! I got my 8x a few weeks ago and thought the sticker was a little strange. Since there is no user access to the inside of the phone on the 8X, the SN/IMEI etc are on the outside of the phone. mine was a little tricky to peel off but once I got a corner up it peeled off cleanly leaving nothing behind. There's another copy of this sticker included in the box (at least in the 2 I've purchased) which you have to attach to the phone if you send it in for warranty repair.

    I removed my sticker. A little tricky to get that first corner up, but then it came right off. It left a little smudge but it rubs off easily.

    I had 2 of them in the box on my 2nd 8x, none on the phone. The first one would have been peeled off had I kept it.

    Good to hear. I like the phone as is and don't plan to get a cover, I just don't like the sticker on it

    Yeah I thought it was weird too. Too scared to peel it off but I guess I should. Yeah won't be getting a case. So there is no way to see this info within Windows Phone?

    You should take it off. Your back will eventually get dirty and when the sticker starts to peel off you'll notice the area under the sticker is a nicer color than the rest of the phone.

    Took it off, adamjames you are right I could tell right away the discoloration from usage.
    Phone looks way better and it was easy to peel off.
    I checked the box and there are 4 more stickers included for warranty replacement purposes.
    This phone is too nice to cover!
