    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.
