Default Change operator logo/name

Please Login to Remove!

I know this is something that was more predominant way back when... but is it possible to change the carrier/operator name from ROGERS to something I specify?

It would be pretty cool if you could though.

There has got to be a way. With the capability to change themes, etc- there must be a way to change the way the operator logo is handled.

Considering that even javaloader does not remove it, I am thinking it is burned into the BlackBerry and will be difficult to impossible to change.

I figure it's either in ROM or in a location that takes the Factory test equipment to acces.

Hope this helps.

You're referring to the startup logo I think.

The OP is referring to the home screen where it shows the operator that is being used, or the alpha tag. This used to be modifiable on some TDMA, CDMA, and old Nokia GSM phones. Within GSM, there are two methods to display an alpha tag. One is from the SIM, where the phone will match the MCC-MNC of the tower to a list in the SIM and display the name from there, or, if there is no name on the SIM, it will display the MCC-MNC. The other is to display an alpha tag from the tower if it is broadcasting one, or again use the MCC-MNC. All manufacturers, except for Motorola, do not allow the end-user to modify this setting easily, and on Motorola, it is a software hack.

RIM actually defaults to allowing the tower alpha tag, unless it is being used in conjuction with a Cingular card.

dc/dc-- fantastic. Thanks for the explanation. Knowing the logic behind it, it definitely sounds like it's a no go.

Greetings,

I am not a BlackBerry whizz had Orange on my 8700f. I have now Vodafone. I can phone and use Internet OK. When it comes to default email address, it says an account already exists and Orange logo is everywhere.

Any utility to clear all that one or are I am stuck?

Cheers,
Jimmy

Jimmy, your question is not very clear, but you cannot clear the startup Orange logo that appears when you turn your phone on. On your BB, if you have an email address that you do NOT want to appear there, go to Options, Advanced, Service Books and select the email account that you DO NOT want to appear on the blackberry, and select delete.

If you wish to remove the Orange logo from the face of the phone, there are numerous threads on this board on how you can try that. Click search above and try using "remove logo".
