    I do not believe it is. That is the indicator of what network you are connect to. For example, when you are roaming it will probably say Travel Talk indicating that you are not on a Metro owned network.

    There is a file in the framework apk that must be edited. You'll have to either use a hex editor or decompile the package.

    You can put your own text in there but the banner will remain as well
