    Okay, here is the problem..Actually I noticed this recently, that also accidentally as it did not give any trouble to me. However, it's a Samsung A 10 and supports dual SIMs and both SIM slots are occupied by two different carriers. When I drag the notification bar down, the device shows three carrier names on the screen and the third carrier is not even exist. I have not to given any nickname for my Sims and SIM 1 and SIM 2 default names are shown when checking the settings. I am really wondered,:oops: my device shows three carriers and one of them does not even exist..and wired thing is this is a dual sim device.

    What is the non-existent name? Just in case you are misreading something.

    Could be a anything from misreading to software glitch.

    But as your phone only has two physical Sim slots, you don't need to worry about the third one.

    Try removing both SIM cards, restart your A 10, and check your Settings menu again.
    Is that third mystery carrier showing up with no SIMs installed after rebooting? What happens when you put both SIM cards back in?

    Posting a screenshot might be helpful. As others have said, it's possible you're misreading (or misunderstanding?) something.
