    iFile from cydia (free trial - $4 if you want to keep it) allows you to view this plist.

    I highly advise against editing the plist with anything else than the command line utility I mentioned earlier.

    I tested with my own 3GS and ejected the sim. The carrier field stayed present. It should update with the correct value after you put in the new sim, or after a restart of the phone.

    Thanks again for your informative advise Olethros. You were right all along. I went to a Movistar shop yesterday and one of the guys working there was nice enough to let me use his sim card. Right after a few seconds searching for a signal, my iPhone was able to connect to Movistar. I checked on the carrier's name under settings and it changed from "Softbank mobil 5.0" to "movistar 5.0" Don't really know why the 5.0 appears but it seems the unlocking worked!

    So there you go. For anyone out there with a Japanese iPhone 3GS, ultrasn0w will make the trick and unlock your phone without the need of Softbank sim card.

    Hi there! I have jailbroken my two iPhone 4 with iOS 5.1.1 and iOS 5.1 (both locked in to Japan-Softbank carrier), and I have tried to do the repo666.ultrasn0w unlocking method via Cydia. But it is not recognizing my Philippines sim/carrier. Is there a problem unlocking the Softbank (Japan) carrier? Or is there a problem with their iOS? Hope to get a response. Thank you!
