So you hate looking at that long Verizon or Telekom text at the top of your iPhone, but you don’t want to jailbreak your iPhone.  Luckily there is a small program out there to change your carrier icon to a pre-selected icon from the batch they give you, or you can create a custom one using Fireworks to give it a more personal feel with our small tutorial.

First you will need to boot up your Mac/PC and download Carrier Editor [Direct Download Mac - Windows Direct Download]


  • Once downloaded, open the program and click Let’s Get Started
  • Grab your iPhone and open Settings > General > About then scroll down to Carrier
  • You will need to type in the version number such as: 13.1
  • Next will pop up a long list of carriers, please select your current carrier otherwise this will create a problem for your iPhone
  • Once selected move onto the logo section next, and you can now drag and drop the logos given with the download or add your custom one with Adobe Fireworks
