Update: new rom loaded
Im gonna look that up, but ive actually loaded aa51's version of cyanogenmod7 since this post. It says "straight talk" now... much better. I must be o.c.d. or something. The old rom by Panda was really good, not as many force closes, but that 1 tiny detail really bothered me. It seems this version "levels out" the longer you run it, like it stabilizes itself. But ill deal with all that just to see the correct carrier name. Someone should put an option in their Roms to change carrier name on the fly. If possible. Thats probably something i need to take to the developer though, not here.
