    Default Did your remove the IMEI sticker from the back?

    I didn't see this anywhere in the reviews but mine has a big sticker on the back that is part of another sticker or something. Did you all remove this? I'm a bit nervous if it will leave residue or mess up the back at all.

    I didn't, but that's cause my phone is in a case.

    If I was going to go naked then I would remove it. I wouldn't think it'd leave residue because I am sure they intend it to be removed since not one reviewer had that visible in the reviews.

    Oh I wasn't sure it was a sticker or not. I was almost scared to pick at it. LOL. I definitely don't like it. Looks like it's coming off soon.

    Wow, I opened my phone and put it in a case so quickly I didn't even notice that sticker was there. Sticker is gone now though!

    Oh yea... I like that using a sticker for the IMEI is a new trend. The HTC One and MotoX did it.

    It isn't a sticker sticker per se, more like one of the other protective stickers. Comes off, no residue, looks nicer without.

    I took mine off. It can be found in the found settings or on the box if ever needed.

    Good call, thanks for asking this question. It seems difficult to take off, I didn't want o pick at it... after I activate - It's gone!

    Side note: What is up with my old signature?

    I took it off but attached it to the box (which I keep) so it won't get lost.

    Yeah I didnt think it came off. Or if it did it would leave a mark. However, just took it off there and is similar to the little protective side stickers that were on the phone in the packaging.

    I laughed when I noticed it, as I had never noticed the same sticker on my black Nexus 4. I guess that the white on my Nexus 5 made that sticker more prominent to me.

    I took it off. I remember seeing it in the reviews. I think one of the reviewers mentioned that it was just a sticker. It came off pretty easy , like it was meant to come off. the phone sure looks better without it.

    Noooo....You're supposed to leave it on! It's like the gold sticker on your flat-brimmed hat.

    Took mine off before even booting it up. As several others have done, however, I attached it to the device box.
