    I took it off then put it back in case any issues came up that required me to return phone. Since I use a case it doesn't bother me

    +1 to this. I know this for a fact having had the same type of sticker with the first Nexus 7. Sent it back to Google for a Warranty issue and they handled it with no issue (and no sticket)

    Yup. Put it in the box. Just the type of sticker it is is meant to be removed.

    anyone here with a black Nexus 5 who has removed the sticker off the back, notice a different tone black underneath it that wont go away? tried water no luck, its not residue, just a lighter tone as if the sticker was on it for a long time and it was in the sun...

    kind of annoying

    No, haven't noticed that at all; I've bounced light around the area and not seeing any discolouration or difference in tone.

    Yes, definitely. Hoping it fades with time...

    Yes! I had this problem too. Tried rubbing it off with my finger, that didn't work.

    What worked for me was wiping it with a cotton shirt. There is no more evidence of the residue from the sticker.

    Also a note about getting the IMEI. You can find the IMEI on the underside of the SIM card tray. So if you are in a bind and don't have the sticker anymore and don't have the box the phone came in you can still get the IMEI.

    So is it suppose to come off? Is it like those pillow tags? I took them off my N5's.

    Removed mine as soon as my phone arrived last Friday. I got the White version and it came off nice and clean. I put the sticker on the box.

    Who hasn't? It's very ugly and if you wait too long it might get stuck.

    You guys do realize the imei number is on the end of the box? Throw those ugly stickers away.

    I forgot about the IMEI and protective sticker around the camera lens and removed both after seeing this thread. If you don't use a case it's likely it will start peeling off from being put in a pocket, purse, etc. Otherwise, if it's in a case there shouldn't be an issue of it coming off if you want to keep it on there.

    I can't understand why anyone would want to keep it on.

    I can kind of understand people removing the sticker, but then are you not left with an obvious space where the sticker once was, which has the 4 corners highlighted in white? (I am currently still trying to decide if i should or should not remove the sticker!)

    No, that is part of the sticker. You can take it off. The back of the phone is solid black or white depending on your model.

    When I took my Nexus 5 to T-Mobile to buy a pay as you go plan, the CSR was about to as for the number, but when he saw the sticker he just scanned it. Done.
    It is just a tiny sticker.
    I left it on. Using a case anyway.
