1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    You have to edit the Eri.xml located in framework-res.apk/res/xml folder.

    Here is the code from the decompiled apk:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    - <EriFile VersionNumber="1357" NumberOfEriEntries="19" EriFileType="1">
    <CallPromptId Id="0" CallPromptText="CallPromptId0" />

    <CallPromptId Id="1" CallPromptText="CallPromptId1" />

    <CallPromptId Id="2" CallPromptText="CallPromptId2" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="0" IconIndex="0" IconMode="0" EriText="" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="1" IconIndex="1" IconMode="0" EriText="" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="2" IconIndex="2" IconMode="1" EriText="" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="64" IconIndex="1" IconMode="0" EriText="Verizon Wireless" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="65" IconIndex="65" IconMode="0" EriText="Network Extender" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="66" IconIndex="1" IconMode="0" EriText="Extended Network" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="67" IconIndex="67" IconMode="0" EriText="Extended Network" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="68" IconIndex="68" IconMode="0" EriText="Roaming" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="69" IconIndex="2" IconMode="1" EriText="Extended Network" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="70" IconIndex="2" IconMode="1" EriText="Roaming" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="71" IconIndex="1" IconMode="0" EriText="Extended Network" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="72" IconIndex="72" IconMode="0" EriText="Extended Network" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="73" IconIndex="73" IconMode="0" EriText="Roaming" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="74" IconIndex="2" IconMode="1" EriText="Extended Network" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="75" IconIndex="2" IconMode="1" EriText="Roaming" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="76" IconIndex="76" IconMode="0" EriText="Verizon Wireless" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="77" IconIndex="2" IconMode="1" EriText="Verizon Wireless" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="78" IconIndex="1" IconMode="0" EriText="Network Extender" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    <EriInfo RoamingIndicator="79" IconIndex="2" IconMode="1" EriText="Network Extender" CallPromptId="0" AlertId="0" />

    </EriFile>

    On RoamingIndicator="64" change the EriText from Verizon to whatever you want it to display.

    Just use apk manager to decompile, recompile and resign your framework-res.apk and push back into your phone.

    If you do a search there is also a tutorial on editing the Eri.xml using a hex editor so you don't have to decompile/recompile but that limits you to the 16 characters used by verizon wireless.

    If you feel this is too difficult send me a pm with what you would like it to say and I can throw together an update.zip for you to install.

    I don't have it either. Never have. But I'm a former Alltel customer and I still use my old Alltel family plan and I was told by Verizon that this is the reason my phone doesn't have the banner.
