Earlier, we had CarrierEditor for Mac which enabled you to change the Carrier Logo to some other custom icon. You can do this on iPhones and on the iPad Cellular. We knew that Windows users would want that application dearly and it's out!
CustomCarrierLogo is specifically for Windows users who've been waiting for the ability to change the carrier name on their iPhones and iPad (cellular) without having to jailbreak. Oh, but note that even if you've got a jailbroken device, this method works. Perfectly.
Note: Sprint users seem to be having a trouble. It ain't working.
Here's what you'll need:
- (if you don't have one already)
- An iPhone (or an iPad Cellular)
- Windows PC
Got that? Following are steps to change carrier name on iPhone without jailbreaking using Windows
Step 1: Run the CustomCarrierLogo program and press ‘Let's Get Started‘
Step 2: Enter the current carrier version of your iPhone / iPad. (You can see this information by heading over to Settings -> General -> About and scroll down to know carrier of your iOS device)
Step 3: After this, enter the type of the device (iPad/iPhone) and then select the carrier type.
Step 4: Now, from the logos you downloaded, choose the appropriate ones by clicking on Browse under the ‘Logo from file' field. If you need to just replace the carrier with a text (your name, your pet's name or whatever), just type that into the text field provided.
Step 5: Once done, tap on Create IPCC Carrier Bundle.
Step 6: Now, connect your iPhone/iPad with windows PC.
Step 7: Open iTunes and then select your device from the top-right. (click on the name)
Step 8: When you see the Summary page in iTunes, hold Shift and press Restore iPhone… and select iPhone/iPad Carrier Configuration files (*.ipcc) from the drop list. In the browse window, choose the newly created .ipcc file (from desktop).
Step 9: Let iTunes finish the restore and your iPhone will reboot. Note that it's not a full restore so you don't have to worry about data. It stays intact.
That's it. The carrier logo should now be replaced with your custom logo/text!
