    Default Scrolling Provider (wireless carrier) Name on Homescreen Question
    Hi all,

    Do many of you have Wireless carrier names that are longer than what the home-screen status bar can display? I have "Rogers Wireless" and when I wake my phone, it automatically scrolls once to display the entire carrier name and then remains static and says "Roge..." Its a pretty nifty start up animation tho.

    I thought it would be pretty cool to have this scroll infinately while the phone is not in sleep mode... does anyone know which plist would have this info?

    I second that request/comment about the cool animation. It would be cool to have mine say my name then wireless and have it scrolling accross the top when I am using the phone.

    If someone were to make a phone with EVERY option people would want, it would weigh 10lbs, and be the size of a brick. Come on, people! There is bling bling, and then there is... welll you. I mean, honestly, guys! Who are you trying to impress with the carrier scrolling? A toddler?

    I don't think we can measure the weight change due to the decrease in entropy for this change... yet

    heres the link to create your own wireless carrier image using photoshop (you can use any font too! )

    once made, upload your 2 images to this location:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
