    Default A weird one, wrong carrier name in my iPhone!

    I have a 2G iPhone with 2.1 (unlocked+jalibroken) and a weird problem..

    I changed my usual SIM (movistar) for one from another carrier (Orange).

    Switched back to my SIM and my iPhone keeps teeling i'm on Orange network! Everything works so i'm really in movistar network.

    Tried to restore, reset settings, nothing works.

    Any ideas?

    FYI the CarrierBundle.Bundle points to the correct network with my custom logos but they never show up anymore.

    Do you have a carrier menu in settings? If you do, try manual selection there. The only thing I would be worried about is that your phone may be roaming for some odd reason, which can be very expensive depending on what services you use.

    Yep.

    I went to carrier settings set to movistar and then go back.
    Keeps saying i'm in orange.
    If i enter again to carrier selection orange is selected, not movistar.

    Anyways i've data roaming disabled and EDGE works and if select another network (i.e. vodafone) doesn't work, so i think i'm on movistar network. Seems to be only a problem with the name

    Check with your offcial carrier to be sure, if its just the name download the make it mine app and then edit the carrier manually

    It must be using the orange CarrierBundle.Bundle

    I would try temp renaming the orange bundle/rebooting to see if that makes any difference.

    Hi all,

    i have the same problem that our friend.

    I have a 3G iphone bought in Orange store. The device is officially unlocked by Orange.

    Two weeks ago, i changed my sim card for SFR (french carrier) and everything was good.

    I decided to switch the sim card to put the Orange one and when i put back the SFR one, ORANGE F was on the top of my screen.

    I saw several threads on the forum talking about CARRIER BUNDLE.

    When i SSH on my device i can see that there is no SFR bundle.

    I know that the MCC/MNC code of SFR in France is 20810 and this folder is not on the /System/Library/Carrier Bundles folder too ...

    I've tried restore and airplane switchs but nothing works.

    I found this thread on a website but to me the solution seems to be complicated : http://george.insideiphone.com/index...-issue-in-113/

    So please could you help me to have the good carrier name on my iPhone ?

    Thanks a lot.

    PS 1 : sorry my english
    PS 2 : i'm a newbie ...

    Hi
    Try going to System/Library/Carrier Bundles & copy your (Orange_France_bundles) FSO_CARRIER_Orange F.png & Default_CARRIER_Orange F.png files to the desktop.

    Then use a converter like this one and open the two png's so you can see what they say

    Note: You need to remove the space between Orange & F (example: FSO_CARRIER_Orange<>F.png) to convert the png

    You should see a picture of the OrangeF logo if not then that's likely your problem

    Also you should look in var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundle.bundle/ at FSO_CARRIER_Orange F.png & Default_CARRIER_Orange F.png to see what they show.

    This has happened to me a couple of times. I'll post what I did:

    After that, I restored the phone with 2.2 pwned and the default options. Now it is unlocked, shows the right operator and all is fine and dandy.
    Keep in mind that my iPhone was a EDGE with a 3.9BL, if yours was 4.6, you shoud restore the baseband to 4.6 Stock.
