Default Change T-Mobile text

When the screen is locked I can press on the Green phone, Home, Back, or Red Phone button and bring up a screen that says the following info:

T-Mobile
<<Current Time>>
<<Current Date>>
Screen Locked.
Press Menu to unlock or place emergency call.

Is there any way to change the text "T-Mobile" on that screen? I originally thought maybe it would change depending on what network I was connected to, but even when I connect to wireless it still states T-Mobile? I know it isn't a big deal having it on there, but I would just like to be able to change the text and customize my phone even more. Thanks in advance for your help.

You can do some customization with and App call Contact Owner ...
I use it for my lock screen info ..so if it was lost, the finder could see info to contact me... You could set up a fake contact and fill out the fields to the info you want to display and add quite a few lines of additional info ,,,

The second press of "Menu" makes it go away as normal ...

That I hope helps to some degree ...

I read on here about the Contact Owner app. I will check it out. If anyone has any tips on changing the T-Mobile text specifically please post it here still though. Thanks.
