Can i change my provider/carrier name on my cyanogenmod9 ics nexus s?
No ,you can't in CM9 ,but you can in CyberGR's mod over at XDA ! [keep in mind that is not as fast as CM9 ,at least not the latest (v8) build]
... or use the bigxie ROM v1.0.0 (works great with Matr1x kernel cfs-v17)
Separate names with a comma.
