    Changing carrier's name

    On the iPhone there was a cool hack to change carrier's name on device to be your own.
    The app called Make it Mine will simply re-write the ATT image to whatever you wanted.
    At least 4 reasons why I need that:

    - we make screencasts/screenshots of application and we usually get comments like 'we see it ONLY works on Verizon...'. If I can rename the carrier name I could include different carrier names in my demos.
    - None of the apps/hacks we demo are approved nor sponsored by Verizon. We don't want any liability in using a carrier's name. Something generic would do it.
    - I don't like VZW enough to add pics, videos promoting them. Why do I need to publicize VZW when all we really want is show our work?
    - Because it's a cool hack

    Let me know if its doable.

    Thanks

    In another post someone said it wasn't an image stored on the phone but was received from the network the phone is on. That doesn't mean there isn't a way to edit this, and even one of the early 2.1 ROMs caused the phone to show something other than Verizon Wireless. I think its doable but its probably not high on the list of things to do and its going to be more difficult than simply creating a new image file.

    Why don't you photoshop your screenshots in the meantime?
