    Default Official carrier bundle version

    I am currently visiting Egypt for a couple of weeks where the iPhone was recently launched. I have a couple of friends who have the iPhone 3G on the carrier mobinil. They all have updated recently to firmware 2.2 but i have noticed that only one of my friends have a carrier bundle version in General -> About as (mobinil 3.0) while all others have (mobinil 2.9). I am using my iphone 3G as roaming and i too have (rogers 2.9). The difference is that in 2.9 the carrier logo is (mobinil EG or Voda.. for vodafone EG) while in 3.0 it is (mobinil or vodafone).

    So it seems like in 3.0 apple updated the carrier bundles for at least Egypt.

    Can anyone tell me how to get 3.0 even though we all have the same firmware version?

    Hope i was clear. Thanks guys.

    Displaying a different logo is probably the only difference. It is done via iTunes (at your friends), Apple tells you, that a carrier bundle update is available. Dont know if this only happens if you are a subscriber or in roaming situations aswell.
    You could always create a custom carrier bundle and apply it with a logo you want to see (http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=48683) or just grab the one from your friends iPhone and install it. Have to have OpwnSSH installed on both sides.
    But: Cause there is no other advantage I would just leave it as it is ;-)

    I thought so too, it's just that he wasn't asked by itunes for a carrier bundle update. All he did was restore recently. I got his ipsw to see if it's a newer version or not. I just checked the size with mine and it's the same though. Maybe during activation you can get a newer version?

    never seen that - but maybe. i would not worry, there is no difference in terms of functionality or so. sometimes the carriers add a new service for their subscribers like directory assistance and want it on a shortcut. thats easy done by new carrier bundles and Apples official way to inject them via iTunes

    Alright, i am almost sure it is during activation. When i restore my phone and activate using my rogers sim, it gives me "rogers 2.9". On a friends vodafone egypt it also gives "vodafone 2.9" but with mobinil it gives "mobinil 3.0" even though he had 2.1 firmware and not 2.2. Weird
