    ok... so how are you trying to change them? Through customize or just by dropping the modified carrier file into the SpringBoard folder?
    - iPhone 8gig and 16gig 3G - 3.0 - JailBroken + Unlocked to T-Mobile Unlimited Plan & Total Internet Plan.
    - iPod Touch - UnJailBroken
    - XBOX 360 - Modded Firmware - XBL (my s/n)
    - XBOX - Software Modded - XBMC
    - Dell Inspiron 1521 - [B]Vista Ultimate and
    running Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.5.4 (YES! Mac OS on an Dell PC)

    install MIM: Make it Mine in utilities, which lets you write whatever you want, then write iPod and then select a carrier image and it will work. only if your carrier text is ipod tho

    Nah dude. iPod wont work... You need to write AT&T. Customize only changes the AT&T pictures when you change the carrier image... Writing AT&T as your carrier trick the phone into thinking that you carrier is AT&T and changes you carrier icon. And Cutomize changes the default AT&T icon into what you select.

    matt4iphones:
    thanks for taking the time to reply to basically all the threads i just commented in... but im saying that it only worked for me to use iPod, writing AT&T didnt change the carrier image only writing iPod did, FOR ME.

    I honesty don't care what has worked for you, so theres no need to reply to every one of my posts, thats great that it worked for you.....

    Hey guys...I just found out about the carrier icon on Iphone 3GS 3.0
    If you use iphonebrowser you can go to
    System/Library/CarrierBundles
    In this folder you will find many other subfolders named with a bunch of numbers.
    If you guys carry at&t, the folders where you can change the carrier icon are: 310150, 310170, 310180, 310380, 310410, 310980, 311180 and ATT_US.bundle
    If you guys carry T-mobile, the folder where you can change the carrier icon are: 20416, 21630, 21901, 22004, 23102, 23203, and on and on.

    Now I changes the carrier icon in each folders where at&t images are. I reboot the iphone, and voila'!!..my carrer icon totally changed. Everything works perfectly fine and no problem so far.

    Remember this method works just on iphone 3.0. Good luck to everybody
    Let me know if you have any problems!
