Change the carrier name in the iPhone Simulator iOS devices
For you iPhone/iPad/iPod touch developers out there, did you know you can change the name of the carrier that appears in the iPhone Simulator? The default carrier name is Carrier, but you can change this to a custom name of your choice.

In Terminal.app, run this command, replacing your_user with your user's short username:
defaults write "/Users/your_user/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/User/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard" SBFakeCarrier "AT&T"

Change the carrier name in the iPhone Simulator

This path didn't work for me, although I could see the change in the plist file. I found that if I edited the plist file for the current simulator version I was using (3.2), it worked perfectly.
defaults write "/Users/your_user/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/simulator_version/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard" SBFakeCarrier "AT&T"
Hope this helps.

The original hint works well!

But on my SL system, there's no versions folder, so I guess you're using either an outdated iPhone-Dev program version or Leopard?
