    How to change your banner (Service provider display name)

    I purchased a used EVO to use on Cricket and quickly became annoyed with seeing "Sprint" everywhere, on the lock screen, on the notification drawer (and just 1/2 an inch from the other "Sprint" logo physically printed on the phone!), so did some googling, and found that this can be changed.
    From what I've read, this can cause issues for some people, Sprint users trying to use Sprint apps mostly, so there shouldn't be much of an impact for us Cricket users aside from how it looks.

    This guide assumes you have used QPST before and have it configured so you can communicate with your phone with it. If not, please do that first:
    http://www.cricketusers.com/flashing...s-cricket.html

    After you are connected using QPST...

    1) "Read from phone"
    2) Click "Display"
    3) Change "Banner"
    4) "Write to phone"

    Here are the end result on the Fresh Evo 3.5.0.1 rom:

    sp5241238.jpg

    Note: If/where/what this changes would depend on your phone and current ROM.

    Ideas:
    Make it say your name.
    Make it say Cricket.
    Make it say "Stolen phone!".
    "Tracking device activated"
    "Stun device charging"

  2. Remove this advertisement.

    Nice... You've actually used the How to prefix properly too. "Congratulation, you've just won a brand new laptop computer."

    Just joking.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.
