    Is there a way to remove the words "Verizon Wireless" from the lock screen? (other than installing an app like Lockbot or No Lock)
    Thanks in advance!

    Can't be done until the Inc is rooted.

    Great, I didn't even realize it was there until you pointed it out. Now it will be staring me in the face every time.

    Root = "Root Access" (a.k.a. super user privilidges). This is not something you get out of the box (go figure). There are smart folks working hard to correct this oversight, but until they crack the OS (and you make a decision to "root" your phone - accepting all that goes with it), you're stuck.

    You can be roaming, then it shows "Roaming" or have no service, then it shows "No Service" If that helps at all..

    I know what root is.

    I was saying that I don't have the Carrier Name on my lock screen or any place else.

    I'm not being funny... my phone doesn't have anything that says Verizon other than the silver logo printed under the speaker.

    It's not in the software anywhere... and I know why. :)

    not when the screen is locked, mine is black then, too. i mean after you hit the unlock button at the top of the phone and the screen comes on that you have to swipe down on to get to your home screen. on that "swipe down" screen it says Verizon Wireless with a digital clock underneath and also the date underneath the time.

    you changed it to "unknown"??
    how? mine says "Verizon Wireless" but it won't let me change it.

    I love my Verizon Wireless free lock screen.

    oh ok Julie...well, I guess I haven't seen the "original" lock screen in a while so I didn't remember! I thought you meant when it's asleep! I use lockbot...which makes it easier because all you have to press is the trackstick not the button on top of the phone...then the customized (via lockbot app) screen comes up...I swipe that one...and my home screen appears..no more swiping at all....well also no clock and logo....so I put a clock with date as a widget on my first home screen! maybe that helps you....well, it's at least one way to get rid of it! good luck;)

    If you are like me and you still have an Alltel based plan - you most likely don't have Verizon Wireless on the lock screen. Mine is completely blank above the bar with the time on it.

    Is there any way to add the "Verizon Wireless" to the operator name? I am on a Alltel plan and I am trying to use the service Sensorly. Sensorly is a application that croudsources users signal strength and shows it on a map. But I can submit data because the data it sends to their service shows up as the operator Unknown. I've been in contact with the developer and they are working on fixing this issue. But in the meantime is there a way to manually change it?
