“Fake Carrier” is one of the new tweaks or you can say apps for the jailbroken iPhones. The name speaks for itself; it lets you fake or simple change the name of your phone carrier to be anything you want. Replace the old boring name of your carrier with something personalized and exciting.
The app is available on Cydia Store and of course it’s free of cost. All you need is to download it and it’s pretty easy to use.
Here is how you do it,
Step 1: Tap on the Cydia icon on the Springboard to launch the application.
Step 2: The carrier name is changed with the help of an app called ‘FakeCarrier‘. Tap on the ‘Search‘ option in Cydia and type ‘Fakecarrier‘ to find the app.
Step 3: Select the app by tapping on the name
and click on ‘Install‘. Follow the instructions to install the app. Finally, click on ‘Return to Cydia‘ to finish installation.
Step 4: Once the installation is completed, you will be able to find a ‘Carrier‘ icon on the iPhone Home Screen. Tap on the ‘Carrier‘ icon to launch the FakeCarrier application.
Step 5: You are now given three options – ‘Fake Carrier‘, ‘Fake Time‘ and ‘Show BatteryLevel‘. Tap on the ‘Fake Carrier‘ option to change the carrier name.
Step 6: You are now prompted to enter your Carrier text. Enter the text of your choice and tap on ‘Set‘.
Step 7: Similarly, you may replace the time banner on top with your customer text using the ‘Fake Time‘ option. Tap on ‘Set‘ to confirm the change.
That’s about it, it simple. It also lets you set up a percentage marker with the battery sign, just tap the ‘battery level’ after opening the ‘Fake Carrier’ application. It’s pretty handy if you ask me.
