    hello everyone,
    i've tried searching for methods to enable carrier settings working on my t-mobile (USA) phone unlocked to 1.1.2 firmware. so far the only guide i have found is listed below from http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17185
    Has anyone been able to get carrier settings working on their phone? i tried the method below and it doesnt work for me...i'm not sure if i am doing something wrong in the editing process tailored to t-mobile settings. i plug in my att card and carrier settings show up, but doesnt work for my t-mobile. anyone can help?



    Carrier settings *optional* (For those who wanna sexy up that iphone )

    - Winscp to your phone and put ls and bash in /bin
    - Click on "more", set both permissions to 0755
    - Check here for your carrier's MCC and MNC (it's not as hard as it sounds)

    e.g MCC = 334 MNC = 02, the number we'll need is 33402

    - Open the Telcel.plist in UltraEdit or wordpad and modify accordingly (Don't forget to rename your .plist file & change the supported sim section)
    - Use winscp to put the modified .plist to /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support/
    - Open putty and connect to your phone
    - Type bash at the prompt
    - Type cd /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support
    - Type ln -s NUMBER YOURCARRIER.plist

    e.g ln -s 33402 Telcel.plist

    - Remove your sim and put some other sim in it to reset the carrier settings(maybe that unactivated att simcard lying around? )
    - Remove the sim card and put back in yours after the phone detected it
    - You should be set, no reboot needed

    I am working on a simple Installer install which will change your format form ATT to T-Mobile. If you could please get me the following 1.1.2 stock files, I can get this fixed up:

    /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/MobilePhoneSettings.bundle/Services.plist
    /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/MobilePhoneSettings.bundle/Phone.plist
    /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/MobilePhoneSettings.bundle/English.lproj/Services.string
    /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/MobilePhoneSettings.bundle/English.lproj/Phone.string
    .

    i could get you the bottom two files...the top two files do not exist. anyway...i got carrier settings working on T-Mobile USA in Hawaii. revan has the commands backwards...when entering in putty.

    It should be..

    - Type bash at the prompt
    - Type cd /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support
    - Type ln -s Telcel.plist 33402

    so file name before carrier code.
