The N900 is easily one of the most customizable phones on the planet. It’s a given that most phones can change wallpapers, ringtones, themes, but normally you can’t change your operator logo, and if you could it was slightly complicated.

With an app called “Custom Operator Name” you can change the operator logo to say whatever you’d like, other than being trapped with “T-Mobile, Virgin, Verizon” or whatever.

In yesterday’s post…

A couple of eagle-eyed readers noticed the AT&T logo. Though they found it more odd that it was displaying 3G, what’s more odd is that I’m in Britain and we don’t have AT&T. That was just to demo that you can change the operator logo


1. Install “Custom Operator Name” App. You may need extras testing apps. See here on how to install that catalogue

2. To set a custom name, you access controls via the standard Maemo settings.

3. Not only can you change the operator name you can:

– Change the operator logo depending on whether it’s connected, offline or in between connection

-Change the colour and shadow of the operator logo

-Alternatively just leave it blank.
