at&t display on screen


Mar 21, 2007, 10:22 AM
does anyone know when our phones will stop reading "Cingular" and say "at&t" on the main screen display of the phone......is that something that can even be altered from the tower or is it automatically programmed in our phones. And the reason Im wondering is just curiousity.....i think it will be cool for it to say at&t instead of cingular! 🤤

Probably closer to the end of the transition. The tower will send you a different tag to display.

yeah, like if you've ever taken your phone to another country, it will show the provider that you are using on your screen. There might be a way to over-ride this though and change it to whatever you want.

I also had A Question, I just Recently got cingular (att) And my Display says AT&T But My mom who also has ATT says Cingular still. Now I was thinking maybe this was because the tower at her house is still sending out cingular.

But when i am visiting mine will still say AT$T. So Is this because AT$T (cingy) is Programed this into my sim card?

I thought the Carrier can change the name of the display from the tower?

Thank you.
