what app is it that allows you to view or change your carrier in the settings. I see some peoples screen shots and it shows what carrier they are able to connect to or view. Please help me on this?

No I want the carrier info in settings. I don't want to change what it says by the signal. I want to be able to change to a roaming tower or whatever the carrier does in settings

It is called the Carrier Selection menu and it involves altering your commcenter. Search for Carrier Selection Menu on here and a tutorial should come up. I am not sure whether it is working on 4.x yet as I have only done it on my old 3.1.2 phone.

figured it out for ios4 jailbroke if anyone is interested here is how to do it.
grab the carrier.plist from the location of your carrier, if in us and you have att it is located at
in that directory is your carrier.plist file, copy it over to your pc and back it up. now use the plist editor and add immediately after
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
that is the only place i could get it to work. now copy that file back to your iphone and enjoy being able to choose what network you want to use.
thanks everyone for the help with this. I know it seems like a small and dumb hack, but for those of us who live in the boonies it helps out with voice a ton.
I lost MMS Pictures after doing this
