    If there is, I've not seen it. There's a few things for iPhone, but none that I've tried that actually works for iPad.

    Makeitmine is the cydia app. Have only used it on my iPhone, but it lets you change the carrier name and/or the time in the status bar to whatever you like.

    In cydia there is a pugam called "changecarrier". It's just for the iPod & iPad. Works great!!

    Hi guys,

    There's no need for complicated plist modifications, all you have to do is open Cydia and search for CarrierPigeon. Once installed, it will allow you to change the "iPad" default name to anything of your choosing. Do not forget to respring once done. Tested and fully working on iPad 4th gen. CDMA, iOS 7 image.jpg
