Xperia U upgrading to ICS

I recently bought Xperia U phone and it was from some celluar network called Tim. The phone is unlocked but there are some apps from Tim and the there is a startup animation from Tim as well(After sony). I want to remove all that, and I want to upgrade the phone to ICS(Currently it's on android 2.3). If I upgrade it to ICS using Sony PC companion, will that make the phone delete all the apps from Tim and remove the start up animation from Tim?

Re: Xperia U upgrading to ICS

if "Tim" didn't approved and/or release the update you are not going to be able to update your phone using PCC or SUS. 

 

as for the preloaded apps and boot animation you have 2 options

 

1) root your phone and delete them

 

or 

 

2) flash your phone
