    I'm not on a 3G but I imagine they are all in the same places since we run the sorta same framework.
    /Applications/MobilePhone.app/icon.png <--check here

    Thanks for your reply , but unfortunately that doesnt seem to be it. I have even deleted "icon.png" and it still remains on screen.

    Any other ideas anyone ?

    Did you replace it with your graphic renamed as icon.png and placed it in the same folder?

    Yes I did , unfortunately it didnt replace it , I guess there are certain applications that you cant change the icons as simply as that ?

    Any other ideas ?

    I have had a look at the plist file (note the entries in bold) ..

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key>
    <string>English</string>
    <key>CFBundleExecutable</key>
    <string>MobilePhone</string>
    <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.mobilephone</string>
    <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key>
    <string>6.0</string>
    <key>CFBundlePackageType</key>
    <string>APPL</string>
    <key>CFBundleResourceSpecification</key>
    <string>ResourceRules.plist</string>
    <key>CFBundleSignature</key>
    <string>????</string>
    <key>CFBundleVersion</key>
    <string>36</string>
    <key>DTPlatformName</key>
    <string>iphoneos</string>
    <key>DTSDKName</key>
    <string>(SDK_NAME)</string>
    <key>SBAppTags</key>
    <array>
    <string>telephony</string>
    </array>
    <key>SBIconClass</key>
    <string>SBPhoneApplicationIcon</string>

    </dict>
    </plist>
    Should I be looking for the icon named "SBPhoneApplicationIcon" ?

    Also , mentioned in the file "DisplayOrder.plist" is the following ...

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>buttonBar</key>
    <array>
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.mobilephone</string>

    </dict>
    Should I be looking for the icon named "com.apple.mobilephone" ?

    cheers

    Your bolded type tells you that you should be looking in the MobilePhone application for the icon. It's just like a non-3G phone. As far as I know all of the icons are changeable because they are file images not hard-coded in the application. There are tons of folks with 3G's and their icons are all changed. How are you SSHing into your phone or are you using an app like Winterboard to do your themeing?

    The great mystery (to me anyway) has been solved , thanks to salgonza711 . I am using winterboard for themes (great app btw) and after head scratching for a loooong time , it was just a simple process of dropping the icon into the "Icons" folder (after a quick rename) and bingo, there it was after a reboot.

    I feel so damn foolish now

    Thanks for your time in your replies Talynrider though , appreciated
