Cydia Tweaks to Fake the iPhone Carrier Name on iOS 9

Carrier names appear on the status bar of iPhone. Sometimes, you may feel like changing the name to your name or funny name. Changing the carrier name is the one most of the jailbreak Cydia iPhone users do. So how to change the carrier name?


Custom carrier name

There’s a tweak called “HotDog”. This tweak comes from BigBoss repo. This tweak lets you customize the text on the lockscreen, incoming call screen along with the carrier name on the status bar.

Installing this tweak allows you to customize various things along with carrier name. So it’s one tweak, many hacks, kinda…

So I recommend this tweak if you want to change the carrier name. It’s fully compatible with iOS 9.

After installing this tweak, head over to settings. There will be an option HotDog.

There you can enter the custom carrier text and respring your device to reflect the changes. You can also include emojiĀ along with text to make it more appealing.

There are other apps like FakeCarrier and MakeItMine. However, they are not yet fully compatible with iOS 9 as of now.

There’s also a Cydia tweak calledĀ Zeppelin, that lets you place logo instead of text in place of Carrier name. There are various logos built-in or you can upload your own.
