Carrier logo: Shifty edition

by Matt Kelsh

Look at all the carrier logos I give!
In the top-left corner of every iOS device there is a space for service providers to proudly showcase their branding. Pop a sim into your iDevice and once connected, you’ll notice the name of your service provider appear between your reception bars and network type (•, 3G, LTE, wifi). Once you’ve gotten past the informative value of such branding, the novelty wears off rather quickly. It isn’t uncommon for a carrier to make a mess of their name (YES OPTUS, VodaAU), which can severely uglify your phone -forever-. A fair question to ask is: have you ever forgotten which service provider you’re subscribed to? No, neither have we.

That’s why we were a little bit excited to find out a relatively simple way to modify the carrier logo using a clever app called CarrierEditor. What’s exciting about it?

  • No jailbreak required
  • CarrierEditor comes with a bunch of pre-made replacement logos, including BATMAN.
  • It’s FREE (but you should send a big thanks tweet to @uhelios on twitter)

We liked this so much, that we had our Shifty Labs™ team draw up some Jelly-eyed logo replacements.
