difference between carrier.plist and operator.plist?
Does anyone know the difference between:
Which files gets preference? In what order does iphone use them?
Yea, thats my question some threads ago. After installing your SMS solution I tried to find out on this topic. nobody replied.
After putting a symlink in the coretelephony support dir from 26202 to my providers plist this works, and carrier symlink is working.
but operator symlink always targets to UnknownCarrier.plist. Dont know why. Even after manual setting of the symlink.
Interesting, I have exactly the same problem with vodafone but thought this would be related to TurboSim which is "branded" with the AT&T data. I could not find any obvious problems, the network list is OK and the home network selected correctly. For what ever reason the iphone doesn't detect vodafone as a valid operator.

Still to find a German T-Mobile ICCID and IMSI to clone for verification.
I did some string searching in the binaries and found out the following.
The 1.1.1 CommCenter only made the symlink for carrier.plist
The 1.1.2 CommCenter appears to make both the symlinks
These symlinks will be made every time CommCenter starts up so even if you make them by hand it will wipe them off.
I think you will need to modify UnknownCarrier.plist to whatever you like or make UnknownCarrier.plist a symlink to 26202. Then both your symlinks will point to the correct files.
I don't see them used a lot except for number formatting etc.
These plists are used on the following scenario:
1) Carrier is the company that you have a contract with, that is the one use use on your home area
2) Operator is the actual (real) company that you are connected to. On your home area it can be your own, when your are roaming, it can be different.
So far I have determined that when you are in your home area the Operator will point to the UnknownCarrier.plist, while the Carrier will point to symbolic link that is the carrier MCC-MNC code. When roaming both can point to specific plists.
The carrier specific plist contains SEVERAL things, such as:
- EDGE settings
- Service settings - specific to each carrier
- Controls call forwarding warning (that annoying thing)
- Is part of the process that defines the country code for the callerid matching, that in turn can make MobilePhone.app or MobileSMS.app crash if not properly configured,
- Several other telephony related stuff
It's an important thing to properly configure these files. The iPhone is made to work this way.
