Commenters just fail to realize the actual point of this tutorial. There are far more strings that can be changed other than the carrier name. That was merely chosen as an EXAMPLE of a string in there that COULD be modified, not because that was the inherent point to gaining access to the string resources file- to modify carrier name. How does this stuff get completely overlooked by people?! Pay attentionnnn to what's going onnnnn.
