    I posted this on a thread but i figured a lot of ppl havent seen it so here:

    1. Connect your iPhone to the computer via the USB cable
    2. Run iPhoneBrowser or DiskAid
    3. Navigate to the folder /private/var/mobile/Library/carrier bundle.bundle
    4. Find the file carrier.plist
    5. You need to convert it from a binary plist to plain text XML (here is a link for Binary – XML .plist converter Binary — XML .plist converter - iAppCat). You may have to convert it back to binary as well when you’re done. This will not, however, fix the “Not Available” text for the network field under Settings>General>About.
    6. Find where the following code is (using turkcell as an example, it’s exactly the same method for all carrier.plist files in each bundle):

    <array>
    <dict>
    <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
    <false/>
    <key>CarrierName</key>
    <string>TR TURKCELL</string>
    <key>DefaultImage</key>
    <string>Default_CARRIER_Turkcell.png</string>
    <key>FullScreenOpaqueImage</key>
    <string>FSO_CARRIER_Turkcell.png</string>
    </dict>
    <dict>
    <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
    <false/>
    <key>CarrierName</key>
    <string>TURKCELL</string>
    <key>DefaultImage</key>
    <string>Default_CARRIER_Turkcell.png</string>
    <key>FullScreenOpaqueImage</key>
    <string>FSO_CARRIER_Turkcell.png</string>
    </dict>
    </array>
    In between the last </dict></array>, you need to insert the following code:
    <dict>
    <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
    <false/>
    <key>CarrierName</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>DefaultImage</key>
    <string>Default_CARRIER_Turkcell.png</string>
    <key>FullScreenOpaqueImage</key>
    <string>FSO_CARRIER_Turkcell.png</string>
    </dict>

    BUT IF U HAVE TMOBILE JUST PUT THIS FILE IN /private/var/mobile/Library/carrier bundle.bundle

    I'm not knocking your effort or anything, good stuff there, but if you have a missing carrier you just use MIM to add AT&T or T-mo or whatever you want back and it stays there like it should... takes 2 seconds and one click.

    I no but it looks bad when you put tmobile on it just all the fake carriers. This makes it look how it's supposed to

    My carrier.plist already had the "empty string" CarrierName entry that you illustrate. I have a 3G on AT&T and got no carrier logo after 3.1 jailbreak.

    Ok, i've read this and another very similar post a million times

    I don't know if this will work for me because i Have a factory unlocked 3gs and in the carrier bundles folder i've got every single carrier under the sun in there (except t-mobile uk which is my provider ironically!!)

    Theres tmobile hk and other t-mob ones, but like i say no uk

    so how do i know which carrier.plist to edit? because with so many plists how will it know to pick that one where there is a hundred other ones for other carriers with images in there but they don't work and show their logo?

    any ideas anyone?

    Guys stop having problems. Just go into Cydia or Icy and search for Fakecarrier thats all and run it and than put in what ever name you want! Please stop editing file that take so long and if you mess up it is worst.
    Please

    If you have a factory unlocked iPhone 3GS, you should just restore the stock 3.1.2 firmware from Apple. It will update the baseband, but since you have a factory unlocked iPhone 3GS it doesn't matter. You will still maintain your unlock status through iTunes and be able to jailbreak firmware 3.1.2 unless you have the new 3GS with the "MC" in the model number.

    By restoring the stock 3.1.2 firmware, not a custom firmware generated by PwnageTool, you won't have the missing carrier name problem.

    A factory unlocked iPhone 3G(S) will maintain its unlock status because your phone's IMEI number is registered with Apple. Everytime you restore a new firmware using iTunes, iTunes will unlock your iPhone 3GS because the IMEI number is found in Apples registered database.

    Ok thats good to know, thanks for the info, BUT i don't thnk this solves my problem.

    I am able to get the carrier name there by just using MIM but i would like to get it to show a carrier logo instead, and as there are so many carrier.plists in the carrer folder I have no idea which to update, i don't want to delete any of them (even though i don't think i'll ever need them) but i don't want to be deleting things where i don't know what the consequences will be...

    I'd love it if someone could help me

    many thanks
