How to disable store demo on Samsung Focus 2?

Hello!

I bought on ebay smartphone Samsung Focus 2 (sgh-i667) from a private seller. I am not a resident of the U.S., so at my request, the seller unlocked the phone to all carriers.
Also, the phone has store demo settings of AT&T and I want to turn it off. There is no service of your company in my country, so I can not contact an authorized service AT & T. Is there a way to turn off the store demo by myself?

What is a "store demo"? If it's a tile, you can uninstall the app/tile. In fact, you can unpin/uninstall any app, even those from AT&T, using standard windows phone actions.

Are you saying you have a store demo loop playing on your phone?

Yes, I can uninstall. But every day at 12 am the phone is restore demo mode.

When demo content installed, demo contacts, facebook and hotmail accounts, text massages are loaded. And when I connect charger, starts video with Windows Phone 7 features. There is a short video with demo mode http://youtu.be/24pvFQssP68

I think I must to flash my device to original firmware. But i don't know how I can do it. Now my version is 7.10.8112.7 When I tried to update my devise via Zune, I've just got an 80070002 error.

Yep, looks like someone sold you a demo phone.

 

I have no idea how you'd recover from this. You might want to follow the xda flashing instructions to get a clean "custom" 7.8 rom
