Hi, in the next few days im going to be picking up myself a Sony Ericsson Xperia Active from Skinny.

Now straight out of the box this phone comes with android 2.3 & has had some billabong branding installed on the phone. The billabong branding includes a billabong boot logo, wallpapers, screen savers, videos & games. 
Sony has released an offical android 4.0 update for the phone, but i was wondering if i update the phone from it's 2.3 to 4.0 will i lose any of the phones billabong branding. 

I've searched the web & can't seem to find any info on this  & have also rung skinny about it but they don't seem to know either. I really want to have android 4.0 on this phone but don't want to lose it's unique billabong branding, as whats the point of buying a uniquely branded phone just to loose the branding. 

So does anyone else own this phone with the billabong branding & has updated it with the official android 4.0 update. If so what happened after the update did you still have the billabong branding?
