    Is there any way to possibly hack the phone or flash it and put in a new rom

    I don't know if the Nokia Software Recovery Tool would recognize your phone or not. My first guess would be that it wouldn't, but that is the software that was released by Nokia to reflash the firmware onto the phone.

    Except it is an HTC not a Nokia... Forget the SRT.

    My understanding is that Windows Phone demos are a separate ROM. It's stuck with demo-ware. Take it back and get a customer model, not a display unit.

    Mobile Community - demo mode ? - Microsoft Mobile Community See the first answer.

    Disable Microsoft Demo Mode? | Nokia Lumia 920 | XDA Forums See post #5.

    You won't be able to. It's a "dummy" retail unit, not meant for consumers
