    or you might want to restore, then try using a different app like iplus to jailbreak/unlock.

    Its not normal but since Cingular has been bought by ATT my guess is that the signal will show ATT not Cingular... who knows though. Does the SIM even work in other phones?

    Yeah the carrier name is retrieved by your phone through 1 of two ways

    1)the memory of your phone in which there's a list with the codes for every carrier if you had an older phone with this it may say Cingular.
    or
    2)Your phone retrieves the name from the cell tower and they've all changed from cingular to AT&T already.

    So the iPhone will never say cingular.

    BUT, i don't think that's what he's asking i think he just wants to know why he only get's a signal every other time he turns on his phone.

    I took a 1.1.4 OTB phone yesterday and jailbroke/unlocked it with ziphone 2.5 and poped in the SIM card and it read "cingular" up at the top. It was a cingular SIM card, not AT&T..

    Oh? That's weird... I have a Cingular sim also and when i put it in it still says AT&T...

    I guess the iPhone works differently than the RAZR and the SLVR when it comes to that, must be stored on the sim.

    Does it matter?

    If you really don't want it to say Cingular download Erica's MakeItMine and change it. :-)

    1. RESTORE to 1.1.4
    2. Download the latest ZiPhone
    3. select DO IT ALL

    lol. If you want it to say cingular badly just use "make it mine" you can find it in installer and open it and enter Cingular and press set and instead of AT&T it will say Cingular but I think that you are receiving carrier name from a cell tower (Because I know I am cause Telstra isn't in the carrier strings ) and its saying AT&T obviously because they bought Cingular
